Local democracy during coronavirus

During coronavirus, we've made some changes to how we're running council meetings. See our coronavirus updates for more information on meetings and decisions.

Outside body

Local Government Association - Councillors' Forum


Terms of Reference

The purpose of the LGA Councillors' Forum is to provide an effective means of holding the LGA to account by:

·         Receiving reports from the LGA Board and Panel Chairs, providing views and challenge.

·         Discussing topical cross-cutting issues impacting on local government to ensure effective connections are being made across Boards.

The LGA Councillors' Forum may: 

·         Receive briefings and hold discussions on topical issues impacting on local government, to ensure members have sufficient information to hold the LGA to account.

·         Request the attendance of external speakers where that supports the Forum in carrying out its role



Observer status unless appointed by the Forum as a full member
