The Bay of Colwyn Town Council represents a small area of the county, covering Rhos-on-Sea, Colwyn Bay, Upper Colwyn Bay and Old Colwyn. It has legal powers to deliver some services to the local community, but fewer duties. The Town Council works closely with the County Borough Council, representing the interests of the local community to ensure the best services and outcomes for local people.
The following is a brief list of some of the services currently provided by the Town Council:
- Public information noticeboards
- Public seating and bus shelters
- War Memorials
- Town Hall meeting rooms
- Christmas lights
The Town Council works in partnership with others to provide and/or support many local amenities and events, including Theatr Colwyn, the annual Bonfire/Fireworks event and the Remembrance Sunday Service and Parade. It also gives grant funding to support major local events, including the 1940s Festival, Access all Eirias and Prom Day, along with many smaller, community based events. Financial support is also given annually to a number of clubs or organisations providing services to residents of the Bay of Colwyn area. For more information about the grant funding available from the Town Council, please visit the Grants page.
Conwy County Borough Council (known as the Local Authority) has a legal responsibility to provide services such as education, environmental health, social services, highways and planning for the whole county. For further information on the services provided by Conwy County Borough Council, or to make a comment or complaint about these services, please visit the Conwy County Borough Council website.

Each year, local councils in Wales are required to complete an Annual Return, summarising their financial position at the completion of the financial year. This report and the accompanying statement of accounts are subject to internal and external audit. To view the most recent audited Annual Return, please click here.
The council also produces a written (Annual Report) summarising its activities during the past municipal year.
