Community Council

Some Background

Nannerch Community Council is made up of 8 elected members from within the parish of Nannerch.  The elected County Councillor Owen Thomas also attends meetings.  There are 10 meetings a year (there are no meetings in January or August) which are held at 19:00 on the first Thursday of the month at Nannerch Memorial Hall.

Agendas are available prior to meetings and are displayed in the notice board and Nannerch-Past and Present on Facebook.  Minutes of all Council meetings will be displayed on this web site, following approval at the subsequent Council meeting. Meetings of the Council are open to the public, except when very sensitive matters are being discussed as directed by the Chair.

As the most local tier of elected representation, Community Councils play an important role in local democracy. Community Councils are comprised of people who care about their community and want to make it a better place to live. As well as representing the community to the local authority, Community Councils facilitate a wide range of activities which promote the well-being of their communities. They bring local people together to help make things happen, and many Community Councils protect and promote the identity of their community.  Nannerch is one of 735 community and town councils in Wales.

Community Councils are accountable to local people and have a duty to represent the interests of the different parts of the community equally.  To become a Community Councillor, you must be over 18 and a British national or qualifying citizen of the Commonwealth or European Union.  Community Council seats are awarded either through election or by co-option. Co-option is when the council chooses from a list of volunteers if there are not enough candidates at election time or the electorate does not call for an election when a seat falls vacant.  Community Councils have a duty to consider the views of everyone in their community, and should seek the views of both electors and those who cannot vote, such as young people.

Financial Support

The Community Council welcome applications from Community groups or committees for financial support. Financial support is also granted to organisations and charitable institutions outside the Council area, if we feel that they may benefit the community.  The Minutes of the Community Council meetings provide full details of all applications for financial support that have been granted by the Council. Further details in respect of applying for financial support from the Community Council, can be obtained from the Clerk and Responsible Financial Officer.  The latest financial accounts must be made available with any request for financial assistance.

Current projects

  • We have prepared a Draft Strategic Plan Community Plan for Nannerch to provide our proposed direction and priorities for Nannerch Community Council over the next 3 years.  Once agreed we hope to be able to report back on progress made annually and detail what we are planning to spend the forthcoming years precept on each year.  This will be able to assist residents to hold us to account.
  • Nannerch has been working with Flintshire county council to match fund additional facilities at the playground.  Plans are currently being drawn up so we can report back to the community
