Welcome

About us

Dolgarrog Community Council plays a major role in improving the environment and quality of life for local people.

The council is a corporate body with a legal existence of its own and has been granted powers by the National Assembly for Wales. The council has 8 members (presently 9 until the next election) including the Chairman, Financial Officer and Secretary.

Council meetings are held at Dolgarrog Community Centre on the first Monday of every month. Times can change dependent upon member’s holidays.

The Council Constitution, Code Of Conduct and accounts are available to see on request. Council meeting minutes are available on this website.

Working with the community

The community council is accountable to local people and has a duty to represent  the interests of the different parts of the community equally.

The community council works closely with Conwy County Council representing the interests of the Dolgarrog community concerning issues such as planning, highways, community safety, street lighting, playing fields, community centres, litter, war memorials, seats, shelters and rights of way.

Who can become a Dolgarrog and area community councillor?

To become a community councillor, you must be over 18 and a British national or qualifying citizen of the Commonwealth or European Union.

Community council seats are awarded either through election or by co-option. Co-option is when the council chooses from a list of volunteers if there are not enough candidates at election time or the electorate does not call for an election when a seat falls vacant.

Community councillors can represent a political party or be politically independent. For further information, see paragraph 1.5, 1.6 - 1.14 and 1.15 of the Electoral Commission Guidance.
