Panel members

An Independent Review Panel has been set up to consider the future role of Community and Town Councils.

The review will:

  • explore the potential role of local government below Local Authority councils, drawing on best practice
  • define the most appropriate model(s)/structure(s) to deliver this role
  • consider how these models and structures should be applied across Wales. This will include consideration of any situations in which they would not be necessary or appropriate.
The past few months saw the Review Panel hearing from members of the community and town councils themselves. The Review Panel would now like to hear from the people who live within these communities. This is your chance to have your voice heard.
