Community councils are the modern equivalent of Parish Councils which used to exist in Wales and still do in England. They are statutory bodies with powers granted by the National Assembly, as an elected tier of local government.
Llangynidr Community Council's role is to represent the interests of community and influence other bodies to do so. For example, the council is consulted by the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority for all planning applications in the village, the council liaises with Powys County Council to ensure the community gets the services it requires and community councillors represent the community on the school's governing body and the Village Hall committee.
The Council also looks after it's various properties, including the public conveniences, for the benefit of all.
