The WLGA, as part of the Welsh Government’s Diversity in Democracy programme will be conducting a survey of members who have chosen not to stand for re-election in the 2017 local elections. The purpose of the survey is to learn more about the experiences of councillors whilst in office and their reasons for leaving. This information will help to make improvements in the support, training and advice available to members and enable authorities to make changes where necessary to assist members in future.
The results of the survey will be provided to each authority and a national report will be available in the Summer of 2017.
