Leader and Cabinet
Blackpool Council political breakdown as of March 2016
At Blackpool, we operate a leader and cabinet system known as the Executive, which is part of the Council and is responsible for most day-to-day decisions.
Labour is in overall control of the council
It is made up of a leader and a cabinet of nine other councillors whom the leader has appointed.
The leader of the council has also appointed one of these cabinet members as his deputy.
Each member of the executive has an area of individual responsibility .
There are 42 councillors representing the residents of Blackpool and you can find out about how to contact them, which committees they are on and when they hold their surgeries by visiting our Your Councillors page.
