The council consists of 12 councillors (sometimes called ‘Members’ of the council).

Councillors are local residents, who carry out a democratic role to represent other members of their community. They are not paid for this work, although they are entitled to a small allowance.

Elections for councillors take place every four years: the next election will be in 2022. On occasion, if there is no successful candidate, or if a councillor becomes disqualified or has to step down, the council can co-opt another councillor in order to make up the number. For QPCC elections, the Queen’s Park ward is divided into four zones, with three councillor positions in each.
