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.

We cannot say thank you enough to everyone who has shared your views and supported us since October last year. 

As the review has truly been evidence based, we would like to share our findings with you and talk you through our reasoning behind some of our recommendations. Which you can read now by clicking on the document below ‘Outline Findings and Recommendations’

We would like to invite you to an information session, on the afternoon of 15 August 2018 in Llandrindod Wells.

Please email us at to book your seat. Closing date for bookings is Friday 10th August.  
We will be submitting our final report to the Cabinet Secretary for Local Government and Public Services in October.
