If so, why not consider joining Llanferres Community Council 

There are currently three vacancies for Community Councillors and you could Make a Difference

  • representing residents’ views
  • ensuring the community receives the services it needs to prosper
  • influencing Welsh Government and Denbighshire County Councils decisions affecting the Llanferres area and its people
  • using your skills and contributing to how decisions are made and issues dealt with

What’s Involved

The council meets every second Thursday of each month except August, in Llanferres village hall. The Clerk circulates correspondence during the course of the month and sends out the agenda for each meeting with supporting documents, prior to each meeting giving Councillors time to read and consider the business to be conducted. Meetings usually last between one and two hours and you can either attend in person or via the video conferencing facility.

You can become a Councillor if you are:

A British citizen, an eligible Commonwealth citizen, a citizen of any member state of the European Union or a qualifying foreign citizen; are 18 years of age or over; and meet at least one of the following criteria:

  1. registered as a local government elector in the Llanferres area; or
  2. have lived in the area as an owner or tenant of land or premises during the last 12 months; or
  3. your principal or only place of work has been in the area during the last 12 months  or
  4. you have lived within 4.8 kilometres (3 miles) of the outer boundary of the area for the last 12 months

Certain people are disqualified from standing, and these include paid officers of the community council, anyone subject to bankruptcy restriction orders and those subject to recent prison sentences.
