Wrexham County Borough Council has 56 councillors representing 47 wards. They are democratically elected every five years and form the Full Council. The Full Council is the ultimate decision making body, from which all other elements in the council structure derive their authority.
The political management of the council is overseen by councillors belonging to several political groups. These councillors sit on various committees, which include:
- Full Council
- Executive Board
- Planning Committee
- Scrutiny Committees
- Standards Committee
- Audit Committee
- Environmental Licensing Committee / Licensing Committee
- Democratic Services Committee
- Appointments Committee
Councillors are expected to attend Full Council meetings and can also be appointed to other committees.
The Mayor is elected annually and chairs council meetings, but also carries out a range of civic duties.
As a unitary authority we provide the full range of local authority services which people rely on. We operate through departments - each with responsibility for delivering specific services in support of the strategic aims and corporate policies of the council.
You can find a list of departments and their key responsibilities on our organisational structure page.
