Near Llandeilo, Carmarthenshire
There are 735 community and town councils in Wales, representing this tier of government closest to the people. They cover approximately 94% of the land area and 70% of the population of Wales. 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.
Some of the key benefits of Community Councils are described here.
