Attendance at evening meetings and weekend events will be required, for which time off in lieu will be granted.

The Council has fifteen councillors and committees covering Finance and Audit, Personnel, Environment, Policy Review, Tumble Hall and Risk Assessments.

The Council has representatives on many groups and organisations. There are currently ten members of staff.

Llannon Community Council aims to deliver services of the highest quality whilst providing value for money. It endeavours to promote the wishes of residents through consultation and conducting its business in an open and democratic manner.

A full driving licence and access to a car is essential as is the ability to communicate through the medium of Welsh.
