We hope you will enjoy using our website and that you find the information up to date and useful.

Ilston Community Council represents the settlements of Perriswood, Nicholaston, Penmaen, Parkmill, Lunnon and Ilston.

We are located in a diverse rural landscape on the south coast of the Gower Peninsular within the UK’s first designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty  (AONB).

As a community council we seek to represent and balance the needs of residents, businesses and the many thousands of visitors we welcome to the area each year.  Our councillors bring a useful mixture of backgrounds, occupations and life experience.

As a community council we are in the lower tier of the structure of local government in Wales. However, our role is vital in ensuring the local perspective is heard and understood by the Principal Authority (Swansea City Council) and other large organisations such as utility companies.  We provide truly local knowledge and liaise closely with our City and County of Swansea Councillor for Pennard Ward.

The community council holds a small budget raised through a precept on council tax.  We aim to use this wisely and in a way that delivers best value for money. To that end the council now has a raft of statutory duties including making meetings accessible through multi locations, maintaining training plans and publishing an annual report to name just a few.

Your councillors, supported by our clerk, work hard to ensure a balance is maintained to ensure this area remains an amazing place to live, do business and to visit.

Dale Ponting

Chairman Ilston Community Council.
