County councillors have been elected to represent your interests and address the issues that affect your community.
Your councillor can help you if you have an idea or concern about your area or the services you receive, for example.
They can provide advice, suggest solutions, speak on your behalf or help you get in touch with the right people.
There are 84 county councillors in Cumbria who have been democratically elected to represent their communities. Some councillors hold regular surgeries in their communities - set times when you can go along and raise any issues of concern. You can also get in touch with them by phone or email.

You can also have your say to councilors in your district at Local Committee. Local Committee is a panel of all the elected county councillors in each area, and often district and parish councilors too. There is a Committee for each of the six Cumbria districts.
Local Committees make decisions about the local area and you can get involved by asking a question, presenting a petition or leading a deputation. Find out more…
