Find Your Councillor
Councillors are people elected by the residents of Fife following local government elections. We have 75 councillors in Fife – together they make up Fife Council.
Surgeries are where councillors come to regular pre-set meetings in the community. They offer constituents an opportunity to speak to their councillor on a one-to-one basis where they can raise issues of concern. We have a 24 hr surgery helpline (contact details at the foot of the page) so that members of the public can find out when their councillor is next holding a public meeting.
