The Northumberland & Newcastle Local Councillor Census 2021

During September 2021, Member Councillors were invited to complete a census using the same questions as in 2017 and 2019.

These give an indication of the personal characteristics of parish, town and community councillors in Northumberland and Newcastle in September 2021.

The results were presented at the Association AGM on 9 October 2021 and will be considered in more depth by the County Committee at a future meeting.

  • An initial analysis of the responses compared with previous years, the 2011 national census and a survey undertaken by the national NALC.

The initial results from the national 2021 Census are expected to start being published in Spring 2022.
