All About Councils
There are 735 community and town councils in Wales, representing this tier of government closest to the people.
The communities they serve range from small rural settlements to large towns and their budgets vary accordingly. However, what they all have in common is serving their communities and acting to improve the quality of life in their locality. This is achieved through exercising a range of statutory powers and duties.
Community and town councils are responsible to their local electorates for delivering a wide range of services and for the provision and upkeep of local amenities.
Each council is made up of elected members, or in some cases co-opted members who represent the interests of the community they serve as a whole. They are recognised as having a role in providing the voice of the citizen in the development and delivery of public services in Wales.
