About Us

The Community Council is made up of members of the community of Magor with Undy.  It is elected by the public to serve a term of four years. Councillors give their  time on a voluntary basis and are not paid for the work they do. The Council does have the following paid employees: Clerk to the Community Council, and three part time village wardens.

Full Council meetings are held on the second Monday of each month (except August) at Undy Church and Community Hall or the Magor Baptist Church Schoolroom. At these meetings, we go through the agenda (which is displayed on the Community Council notice board outside the Police Station as well as on this site). There is also time set aside during which residents in the community may address the Community Council and/or ask it to discuss specific issues or concerns at a future meeting.

The Community Council also hold various 'committee' meetings on an ad hoc basis at alternative venues in the community.

Agendas and minutes of all Magor with Undy Community Council meetings can be found on the web site Meetings page

Details of any Community Council vacancies can be found on the Councillors page.
