The County Council comprises County Councillors supported by council officers.  Elections for County Councillors are held once every four years.  Sebastian Kindersley is the County Councillor for the Gamlingay Electoral Division, which includes our parish of Hatley.

Following boundary changes which came into effect with the election in May 2017, the County is divided into 59 electoral divisions (previously it was 60).  Most divisions return one councillor – in two divisions there are two councillors, giving a total of 61 councillors (69 previously) in all.

After the County Council election on 4 May 2017, the political make-up of the Council is 36 Conservatives, 4 Independents, 7 Labour and 14 Liberal Democrats.  Visit the Cambridgeshire County Council website for the full list of councillors. The next County Council election will be in 2021.
