In 1972 Parish Councils in Wales were replaced with representative elected community councils. Laugharne Township Community Council has eleven members or councillors. Each year they elect one of their members as Mayor. This year it is Cllr Iris John.
The community council owns the Green Banks and the Foreshore Car Park. The council provides footway lighting, seats and planting throughout the community and organises the Christmas lights. Organisations can apply to the council for small grants to organise community events and activities.
The council works with the county council on various projects and also as a statutory consultee, comments on planning applications. The council is not responsible for rights of way, but regularly brings access issues to the notice of Carmarthenshire County Councils Rights of Way Officer.
The clerk to the council is Chris Delaney. He can be contacted at
