Holyhead Town Council
Holyhead Town Council is one of 40 town and community councils on Anglesey. It is the largest town/community council in the county in terms of population and responsibilities. The Town Council has existed in various forms since the 19th Century. Local government reorganisation in 1974 transferred many of the responsibilities of the Holyhead Urban District Council to Anglesey Borough (District) Council and created the existing Holyhead Town Council. A review of town and community councils in Wales has been carried out and the Welsh Assembly are now proposing that town and community councils should gain additional responsibilities and funding in the future.
