The Council

Penrice Community Council consists of nine unpaid volunteers and a Clerk to the Council/Responsible Finance Officer who works for the Council on a part-time basis.

The Council and individual Councillors are governed by legislation and codes - see below and also see Resources.

The Clerk advises Council on legislation and procedure and carries out the administration of the Council.

Much of the work of the Council is carried out through Council Meetings. The topics covered are covered by the Minutes of Council Meetings and within Community Matters.

The management and finances of the Council are audited annually. Details are covered in Council Meetings and related documents are also available.

Notice will be given when local residents can seek appointment to the Council. This is usually once every four years for elections or when there is a vacancy. Councillors represent one of three local Wards: Horton, Oxwich or Penrice.

Details of the current members of Penrice Community Council are shown on the left.
