Bridgend County Borough Council is the governing body for Bridgend County Borough, one of the Principal Areas of Wales.

Councillors' roles

Councillors represent the people of Bridgend County Borough. They are appointed at local elections, which are usually every four years. Currently, there are 54 councillors for 39 wards. While they serve the whole community, councillors have a duty to know what is happening in their area. Councillors campaign to further their ward’s quality of life and development, as well as the borough’s.

What’s more, they collaborate with local bodies and forums. This includes health boards, the police and schools. In this way, councillors gain a deep understanding and knowledge of community organisations. Above all, councillors listen to local people’s needs, and take their views into account when making decisions.

The council’s ‘top’ body is the Full Council meeting. The Full Council is where all 54 councillors debate decisions, and the Full Council decides the budget, as well as policy. Also, councillors may have posts in the Cabinet, on standing committees or as members of Scrutiny.
