What we do
The Town Council represents the opinions of Llandeilo people in all matters with particular
transport matters – traffic problems, car parking
economic development – supporting shops and businesses
environmental matters - such as dog fouling, street lighting, footpaths
community projects – like our festivals and celebrations
leisure, the arts and recreation
The Town Council receives funding primarily via the County Council through its precept
- the annual allowance that sets the budget for the provision of services. The Town Council may raise additional
funds through loans or grants for special projects - such as the Town Enhancement Scheme.
The Town Council has the main responsibility for:
The Town Council owns the Shire Hall – bought with a loan and currently leased out
to the Dyfed Archaeological Trust.
The Town Council gives grants each year to organisations such as:
St Teilo’s church to help with floodlighting and maintenance of the graveyard
schools and youth groups
local charities and clubs
any other local or national organisations whose work will benefit our townspeople
The Council considers applications for funding, under Section 137 of the Local Government
Act, four times a year. The maximum we can spend is currently £5 for every elector, in each financial
year. Any individuals or organisations whose project will be of some benefit to Llandeilo people are very
welcome to apply – we positively encourage more to do so. Applications should be made in writing
to the Town Clerk, should include a balance sheet of income and expenses for the past financial year, where
applicable, and should clearly describe the benefits.
