Community Councils : Who does what and how

This page contains resources that have been brought together from One Voice Wales (OVW), the Public Services Ombudsman for Wales, the Welsh Government and the R&MCC.

OVW “is the principal organisation for community and town councils in Wales, providing a strong voice representing the councils’ interests and a range of high quality services to support their work.”  The website has a wealth of information for member councils (which R&MCC is) and the public.
