Welcome...

The Community Council is the tier of local government nearest to the people and made up of Councillors, it makes decisions as a whole for the benefit of the Community, represents the views of that council and never speak or act individually.

The Clerk, who is employed by the Council, provides the independent, objective and professional support the Council need to make their decisions to get the best deal and work within their powers.

The Clerk deals with many services on behalf of the Community Council:

  • Local footpath streetlighting
  • Complaints regarding any issues within the community
  • Rhosllannerchrugog Cemetery, the office holds the burial records for the cemetery from 1884.
  • Administrator – every day normal work not too exciting

  • Community officer & Public relations officer  – maintaining the front line of the Council in a professional and respectful manner
  • Remembrance Day Parades

  • Youth Council – the only youth council in Wales, this is a representation from all local schools and local youths who attend feeder schools, who meet every 2 months to discuss issues that the youth may have in the community and to keep Council up to date with school events and activities.  The Youth Council members do visit MPs in London and AMs in Cardiff to learn all about local politics and how it affects them.

And many more things that will crop up on a daily basis.

Behind every good Clerk is a good Assistant Clerk, who is the front line of telephone contact and personal contact within the office.
