Choosing your local councillor
You get the chance to vote for your local councillors each year, usually on the first Thursday in May. Brentwood has what's called a two-tier authority. This means that Essex County Council provides some of our local services, these include education, social services, fire and rescue, highways, trading standards and consumer protection. It also means that every fourth year you can vote for a local County councillor rather than a Borough councillor. For further information please go to the Electoral Services section of this website.
