Your Local Councillors
The Town Council consists of up to twenty members, who are residents of Syston, or their place of work is in Syston. Our Councillors have volunteered to spend some of their time looking after the interests of the town and its residents. Meetings are held weekly, and are attended by the Town Councillors and Council officers. Full Council is also attended by the Borough and County Councillors.
Our councillors are all elected or co-opted onto the Council, if you would like to become a councillor or find out more about what they do then please follow the links below. Or simply contact the Town Council Office.
