MPs do not have any jurisdiction over local Council decisions, but I am happy to assist in raising local matters with local councils. Many of the cases that come to me, such as housing or roads, are primarily the responsibility of local councils so you should exhaust their referral processes first and where appropriate seek the help of your ward councillor before bringing it to me if you have been unable achieve a satisfactory resolution. Here ae the links to local councils, their responsibilities and members:
