Prescot Town Councillors

The Township of Prescot is split into four political wards, Central Ward, East Ward, North West Ward and South Ward represented by seventeen Councillors.

The Town Council holds ‘All Out’ Elections every fours years. In the event of a vacancy arising the Town Council will advertise that Vacancy publicly so that a Bi Election may be called. In the event a Bi Election is not called the Council may  co-opt an individual to serve as Councillor until the next ‘All Out’ election.

At present fourteen of Prescot Town Council’s seventeen Councillors were elected at the May 2014 elections.

Responsibilities of a Councillor, a Town Councillor must

  • attend meetings when summoned to do so; the notice to attend a council meeting is, in law, a summons, because there is a duty to attend
  • consider, in advance of the meeting, the agenda and any related documents which were sent to you with the summons
  • take part in meetings and consider all the relevant facts and issues on matters which require a decision including the views of others expressed at the meeting
  • take part in voting and respect decisions made by the majority of those present and voting
  • ensure, with other councillors, that the council is properly managed
  • represent the whole electorate, and not just those who voted for them

As part of the Code of Conduct, all elected and co-opted members must act in conformity with the Seven Principles of Public Life. One of these is the principle of honesty – that ‘holders of public office have a duty to declare any private interests relating to their public duties and to take steps to resolve any conflicts arising in a way that protects the public interest’.

Knowsley Council’s Monitoring Officer is responsible for maintaining the register of members’ interests and for making the register available for inspection in the local area and published on the council’s website. Links to the register of interest for each councillor are provided below.
