Welshpool Town Council has been given the go-ahead to hold elections for two vacant seats.

The council has had empty seats on both Llanerchyddol and Gungrog Wards since the May elections and had to apply to Powys County Council for permission to hold elections. The alternative was to co-opt.

“The County Council will be hosting elections for the two vacant seats on Welshpool Town Council in Gungrog and Llanerchyddol Wards,” said Robert Robinson, Town Clerk.

“The Town Council has a policy of election and not co-option for two reasons - one is democracy and the other to be ready when standards are set for the power of competance by Welsh Government which are likely to require elected councils.”

Information on how to stand as a candidate will be issued soon. Anyone interested in standing for election is advised to visit the Town Clerk to find out what is involved.

A candidates pack giving informaton on the Council and the work of a Councillor can be found on the web site at or as per attached.

The Mayor Cllr Steve Kaye welcomed the news that the County Council is to proceed with elections for the Town Council vacant seats.
