The Role
Town Councillors represent the people living in Penmaenmawr and Dwygyfylchi. When decisions are made Councillors are there to put the views of the local people and have a duty to represent all local people and their interests.

Being available to the public and making people aware that you are a Councillor plays an important part in gaining the understanding of local views. Council meetings are open to the public and can be accessed remotely by Zoom.

An effective councillor is not an easy role. It requires considerable skills and effort to achieve success. The reward is to see the benefit to the community through the policies and action of the council.

There are several reasons why people become councillors such as:

  1. Representing electors and constituents
  2. Using the position of councillor to push forward policies
  3. Improving or changing the things for the community
  4. Defending the area and the community against threat or changes

If you would like to apply or discuss the position further contact Helen Stewart BEM, Locum Clerk to Penmaenmawr Town Council at [email protected] or by telephone on: 01492 623221 or 0771 785 8211.
