The local election campaign is well under way – a busy time for us all!
I would like to wish those of you who are defending your seats the very best of luck. To those of you who are stepping down as a councillor, a huge thank you for your service to your communities.
Among the many coronavirus challenges local government faced in the past year, ensuring that democracy continued to function turned out to be one of the simplest.
As lockdown rules continue to ease, our councils remain at the forefront of support for residents and businesses.
