The Newport Town Council comprises 11 elected members or Councillors.  They take decisions about the way in which council services are provided and about how events and activities take place.  Decisions that are taken by a committee of members are normally ratified by the full council.  You can find out details of the committees and their membership by visiting our "Councillors " page.

It is the job of the Council's elected members to represent the community and its interests.

They raise matters of interest or concern, influence and respond to consultations and manage the Council's budget.

The Council is consulted on planning applications in its area, as well as other planning and highways/footpaths matters. The Council can also make representations about licensing issues.

In addition to sitting on various Council committees, the members also represent the Council on other organisations such as school governing bodies and environmental groups. This allows the members to contribute to the well-being of the community through the work of these organisations. The "Councillors " section of this web site provides details of the members and who sits on which bodies.

The Council enjoys a good relationship with the Pembrokeshire County Council and Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority.  The council also co-operates with Nevern and Dinas Local Councils.

The members are supported by the Town Clerk whose role is to carry out the decisions of members, managing and providing Council services on a day to day basis.
