The Wales Government has established an Independent Review Panel to consider the future role of Community and Town Councils. Ed Humphreys, the Town Clerk to Newtown TC and a member of SLCC’s Board of Directors is representing our profession on the Panel. The review will:
• explore the potential role of local government below Local Authority councils, drawing on best practice
• define the most appropriate model(s)/structure(s) to deliver this role
• consider how these models and structures should be applied across Wales. This will include consideration of any situations in which they would not be necessary or appropriate.
The Panel has issued a call for evidence and every council clerk can assist by completing the short survey at http://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/DGMA8/
