Clyro Community Council is your local tier of government. It is made up from up to nine councillors who are elected or co-opted. It is a voluntary organisation set up by statute by the Local Authority and run by local residents to act on behalf of its area.
Community Councils are comprised of people who care about their community and want to make it a better place to live.
There are 735 community and town councils in Wales. They cover approximately 94% of the land area and 70% of the population of Wales.
They are recognised as having a role in providing the voice of the citizen in the development and delivery of public services in Wales.
What Do We Do?
Community Councillors meet on the second Tuesday of each month in Clyro village hall. Members of the public are welcome to attend all meetings and are invited to comment at the end of the meeting.
As well as representing the community to the local authority, the Community Council facilitates a range of functions which promote the well-being of our community.
The Community Council are a statutory consultee in the planning process so all planning applications in the Clyro Parish are looked at and the council are able to comment on them.
The written rules of a local Council are called the Standing Orders. Standing orders are essential to regulate the proceedings of a meeting. A council may also use standing orders to confirm or refer to various internal organisational and administrative arrangements. The standing orders of a council are not the same as the policies of a council but standing orders may refer to them.
