Each lead councillor keeps a focus on their area of responsibility by:

  • raising the profile of the issue and demonstrating the council's commitment to the issue
  • fostering the engagement of a wider range of members in the review and development of the issue
  • promoting effective communication and positive working relationships both within the council and amongst partners, stakeholders and community groups
  • promoting the positive work that is being undertaken within the district, both at a regional and national level
  • providing positive support, and on occasions constructive challenge, to officers in driving forward the council's plans on the issue
