Councillors and Officers - Who Does What?

Both Councillors and Officers are servants of the public and they are indispensable to one another, but their responsibilities are distinct.

Councillors are responsible to the electorate and serve for the duration of their term of office. They are empowered to make decisions and budgets as a Council. A minimum of one third of all councillors must be present at a sheduled meeting to legally make decisions, and individual councilors are not permitted to direct officers or make financial decisons.

Council officers are led by the Town Clerk, who advises councillors and the Council. All staff are employed by the Council to provide a full range of services and carry out Council & Committee resolutions.

 

Direct Labour Force

Ludlow Town Council's Direct Labour Force (DLF) carry out the maintenance, grass cutting strimming and regular inspections of the Cemetery, a number of amenity areas including Wheeler Road Skate Park, Castle Gardens and Linney Riverside Park, and property owned and maintained by Town Council. Further duties include putting up banners to advertise festival and cultural events, erecting Christmas lights, maintaining the market area in the centre of town; and cleaning and maintainance of the Council's machinery and vehicles.  The Council also employs a full time Market Manager to organise markets, collect rent, advertise the market, and impliment the Council's policies.
