Abstract

As part of the local government modernisation agenda, and under the specific terms of the Local Government Act 2000, local authorities have been required to adopt one of the new models designed to strengthen their core executive: principally, the leader and cabinet, the elected mayor and cabinet, or the elected mayor and council manager. Although the new political management structures are now in place, little is yet known about how they have affected the lives and work of councillors. This paper presents the initial results from a study of elected members in four local authorities in the North of England. Based on a survey and interviews, the research explores the impact of the new arrangements, and other aspects of modernisation, upon the role of the councillor.
