Community & Town Councils in Wales: “One Voice Wales”

There are over 700 community and town councils exist in Wales but no two are the same. Larger councils may spend from £1 million pa, whilst some smaller ones may spend very little . There are also differences in populations served, staffing levels and other resources.

Most Community and Town Councils are affiliated to One Voice Wales, an umberalla organisation which acts as a voice for local councils in areas such as liaising with Welsh Government and other agencies. Cwmbran Community Council is a member of One Voice Wales.
