Welcome to Lichfield District Council

Congratulations on being elected. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome new and returning councillors to the council – we look forward to working with you all.

Thank you to you all for coming along to our welcome day which we hope you found informative – download the slides.

As you get to grips with your role as a councillor, we also recommend you download and read our social media guide for councillors which gives lots of hand hints and tips, along with vital do’s and don’ts. Any questions, email media@lichfielddc.gov.uk

You might also be interested in a handy guide for new councillors published by the Local Government Association. To read the guide visit www.local.gov.uk/councillor-development

A few reminders

  • Don’t forget to submit a declaration of election expenses form, even if you haven’t incurred any costs, or if you were elected in an uncontested election within 35 days of being elected –  find out more.
  • Don’t forget to fill in your online register of interests by 30 May 2019 – find out more.
  • Don’t forget to register for ModGov so you can see council papers in meetings – find out more.

We hope you find this online pack useful and informative. If you have any questions, please feel free to call me on 01543 308001 or email me on diane.tilley@lichfielddc.gov.uk

Once again, welcome to Lichfield District Council. I wish you every success in your role as a councillor and we look forward to working with you.

Kind regards,

Diane Tilley

Chief Executive of Lichfield District Council
