Support for Councillors

As a Member of North Hertfordshire District Council (NHDC), you are working in an exciting period of change and are facing many challenges, as the Council strives to enhance the quality of life of NHDC residents.

If you are to continue to be effective as a Councillor, it is important that you have the support you need to help you meet the demands of your role.

Whether you are:

  • a new councillor - getting to grips with your new role;
  • an experienced ward councillor - trying to find better ways to involve the people in your local area;
  • a scrutiny committee member - focusing on the performance and effectiveness of the Council;
  • an executive member - trying to get the balance right between portfolio and ward responsibilities,

or carrying out any of the many other committee and representative roles, your own personal development is a high priority.

However, we appreciate that balancing all these demands is not easy and are striving to provide a range of development opportunities that are appropriate for all our Members.

If you would like to discuss any of the information available via the following links, please contact David Miley, Democratic Services Manager or Liz Goddard, Learning and Development Manager.
