Town Council


Llandeilo Fawr Town Council

The Town Council is an elected body responsible for local government within Llandeilo town. It represents the interests of the town in the provision of local services and liases with other bodies involved in local government - Carmarthenshire County Council, the Welsh Government and the U.K. Government (links open in a new window).

What we do

The Town Council represents the opinions of Llandeilo people in all matters with particular interest in:

  • 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:

  • maintenance of footpaths

  • maintenance of some street lights

  • provision of Christmas lights.

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

  • local festivals

  • 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.
