Porthcawl Town Council currently has vacancies for 2 councillors

Porthcawl Town Council currently has vacancies for two Councillors (one in the West Central Ward and one in Newton Ward) which will be filled through the process of co- option. Co-opted Councillors have the same rights and responsibilities as those Councillors who obtain office through election. The position of Community Councillor does not attract any remuneration. Councillors are expected to attend the monthly meetings of the Council and also to serve on a number of Committees which normally meet on a quarterly cycle. The role is varied and enables local people to use their skills and experience to enhance the work undertaken by the Council for the benefit of the community.

The Council wishes to invite interested and eligible people to submit their applications for the role of Councillor by way of a letter outlining the following:

  •   the contribution you believe you could make to the work of the Council;
  •   the personal qualities that you would bring to the role;
  •   your availability for attending meetings.
