Our Councillors

Councillors Tom Gillanders, Mark Graham and Denise Bell are not in the photo.

There are 14 Councillors on Hexham Town Council. They are elected on Local Election Day (usually a Thursday in early May) to serve for a four-year term. If a Councillor steps down,  a by-election may be held and the newly elected Councillor will serve for the rest of the current term.

Town Councillors are entitled to small allowances but the Councillors have voted not to receive these (unless for example, a Councillor undertakes significant travel on behalf of the Town Council).

Hexham is represented on Northumberland County Council by three County Councillors.

Town Councillors are elected in 3 Hexham wards,  each returning multiple Councillors,  as follows:
Hexham Gilesgate (Central): 5 Councillors,  covering Wydon Park,  Priestlands,  Hextol,  Hencotes,  Beaumont Street, Lower Cockshaw, Lower Eilansgate,  Haugh Lane,  Tyne Green,  Hallstile Bank and Gilesgate.
Hexham Priestpopple (East): 5 Councillors,  covering Dipton Mill Rd,  Loughbrow and Hackwood Parks,  Maidens Walk,  White Cross,  Woodlands,  Eastwood Grange,  Alemouth Road,  Peth Head and Priestpopple.
