The popular view of first tier councils. In fact there are more than 10,000 community, town and parish councils in England and Wales, comprising more than 100,000 councillors - the 8,000 or so in Wales are paid £100 a year for their services.
Unlike the 20 in Bridgend, Torfaen only has 6 town and community councils - making my task somewhat easier! (For more on what they actually are, check out the One Voice Wales website HERE.) I've listed them by size:
Cwmbran Community Council
Pontypool Community Council
Croesyceiliog and Llanyrafon Community Council
Blaenavon Town Council
Ponthir Community Council
Henllys Community Council
Aside from Blaenavon - which really only needs a good updating session - it looks like Torfaen's town and community councils are all on track!
