Your MPs (Members of Parliament)

Members of Parliament (MPs) are elected by a particular area or constituency in Britain to represent them in the House of Commons.  MPs divide their time between their constituency and the Houses of Parliament in London.  Once elected it is an MPs job to represent all the people in his or her constituency.  An MP can ask Government Ministers questions, speak about issues in the House of commons and consider and propose new laws. 

Doncaster has three Members of Parliament covering three parliamentary constituencies, Central, North and Don Valley. Please click on the link below for further information.

The Democratic Make Up

Doncaster Metropolitan Borough is divided into 21 areas known as wards and each ward is represented by three democratically elected councillors, also known as Elected Members, therefore there are 63 councillors within the Doncaster Borough.

A councillor serves a four year term of office which means that every fourth year no election takes place for ward councillors. Doncaster has an Elected Mayor (Labour) who also serves a four year term of office and that election takes place in the year when there are no local elections. 

The next Mayoral election takes place in 2017. 

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England has made the decision to reduce the number of Councillors in Doncaster from 63 seats to 54. As a result, in 2015,Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council will revert to an all out election where all 54 seats will be contested.

Currently the political constitution of the Council is 48 Labour, including the Elected Mayor, 9 Conservative, 3 UKIP and 4 Independent/not affiliated to a party.

Members Allowance and Member Expense Scheme

Elected Members are entitled to a basic allowance, Special Responsibility (for holding particular positions) and allowable expenses.  Allowances are recommended by an Independent Remuneration Panel which is made up from members of the public.

Details of the Members' Allowance Scheme can be found in part 6 of the Council Constitution, which is attached to this page.

We publish a list of allowances, travel and subsistence expenses claimed by our councillors each year which are attached to this page.
