The Community Council is an elected body to make decisions which represent the views of the residents in the Community on a wide variety of subjects that come before the Community Council these can be at local and national level.

Your local Community Councillor is the link between local residents and the next tier of local government. The current group of Councillors between them, hold many years of professional experience and local knowledge and remain an excellent source for information and advice as to the way forward with a wide range of matters, community needs and aspirations.

The Community Council is funded in the main by the taxpayer, via Powys County Council. The precept is set annually and claimed from Powys County Council. In turn this comes from the council tax paid by local residents.

Much time is voluntarily given by Councillors, who are entitled to claim expenses for costs incurred, but seldom do.

The Clerk to Council is the only direct employee and also acts as Responsible Financial Officer. This includes managing all the financial affairs and general administration to meet with the legislative requirements and act as an advisor to the Council.
