​It’s an exciting time to be part of local government and this is a great opportunity to see your community progress from your dedication. A democracy only succeeds if people who care for the community are prepared to give it a go, do their bit and have a say.

We are searching for the best people to shape our city. Our members need vision and commitment to help them make our community a better place to live.

Successful local election candidates are those that take the time to listen to their community, engage with people and go on to champion their voice as their representatives.

Candidates Induction

Following the election and confirmation of elected members for the 2016/2019 Council triennium, the Council will run an extensive induction programme to bring all our Councillors up to speed. This period will involve a comprehensive orientation of all parts of the organisation and will require considerable time commitment from all elected members. The initial induction programme is scheduled to take place from Saturday 8 October to Wednesday 30 November 2016.

A detailed programme with timings will be provided to successful candidates at a later date. For those days marked with events allow a full day free in your diary.  ​

*please note dates may change at the discretion of the Council.
