Council and Members

The general purpose of the community council is to represent the interests of the community, and where necessary express the community's views to Powys County Council or any other body.

In Wales, community councils are the most local units of democratic government. They give local people a say in matters that affect them directly. They can serve as a focal point for coordinated action and enable communities to influence the future of their locality. Manafon Community Council consists of 7 members supported by the Clerk.

The Council has a number of responsibilities, for example public footpaths, highways, street lighting and planning applications.

Meetings are usually held once a month on Wednesdays at 7:30pm in New Mills Village Hall (see the meeting dates page for more information). All residents of Manafon community are welcome to attend the meetings or contact their community councillors to raise legitimate matters on their behalf.

You can also contact one of our councillors if you have any concerns or suggestions about community issues.

Each councillor is responsible for areas relating to the community, which are listed on the councillors page along with their contact details.
