On 4 May 2017 elections will be held for Powys County Council and your local Community Council.
Election to Powys County Council
73 County Councillors are to be elected. Each County Councillor represents a division that comprises one or more communities. On average, every division has an electorate of about 1,500 electors.
Election to Town and Community Councils
For the 110 Town and Community Councils in Powys, there is a total of 1041 Community Councillors to be elected. The communities vary widely in geographical area and in their numbers of residents. The smallest has approximately 149 electors and seven councillors, while the largest has over 8,000 electors and 16 councillors. Many of the councils have retained the ownership of property and land for the benefit of their communities, while others have interests in community facilities, such as burial grounds and community halls. All act as the voice of their community and are regularly consulted by the National Assembly for Wales or by the County Council on local matters.
