Carmarthenshire County Council

We are one of the largest and most diverse employers in South West Wales employing over 9000 people providing services across a rural county to a population of around 184,000 (2011 Census). The Council comprises 74 elected Councillors representing 58 Electoral Wards from a range of political groups. They normally meet as a Council on a monthly basis.

They are elected by you to represent your views when they make decisions about services and matters affecting the local community. They have a number of roles and responsibilities and they need to balance the needs and interests of their community, their political party or group with the needs of the residents of the county as a whole.
