Llanferres Community Council is a voluntary organisation set up by statute. It is run by elected and co-opted Members who act on behalf of residents in the area covered by the Council.

The role of the Council is to provide a voice for residents in the development and delivery of public services provided by Denbighshire County Council, maintain local amenities and facilitate the delivery of local projects.

In summary we:

  • Hold monthly meetings to discuss national and local activities that could impact the community. We will investigate and try to resolve any matters and concerns raised. Members of the public can attend and address the Council at the beginning of each meeting.
  • Review Planning Applications and respond to Denbighshire County Council.
  • Post public information on notice boards in the area and on this website.
  • Maintain local amenities (parks, playing fields, open spaces, noticeboards, bus shelters, memorial stones and public seats) in accordance with the Councils obligations.
  • Ensure the annual budget (precept) includes funding for any ‘special projects’ identified and agreed by the Community Council.

The villages covered by the Council include Llanferres, Maeshafn, Tafarn-y-Gelyn, Cadole and Pant Du

The villages are all located in Denbighshire, North Wales within the Clwydian Range, Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The heather-clad hills of the Clwydian Range reward the adventurer with scenic landscapes, dramatic summits, ancient hillforts and incredible views.
