Elections 2022

Following recent Local Government elections Monmouth Town Council became inquorate (insufficient number of Councillors to hold a meeting). 5 councillors were elected uncontested (1 for each ward) with 14 seats left vacant. 

We have now received confirmation from the Elections Officer of Monmouthshire County Council (MCC) that these 14 seats will now be filled through an additional election process. The nomination period for this election will reopen on the 17th May and will close on the 25th May 2022. If an election is required this will be held on the 23rd June 2022

The council provides funding to community groups and charities, it supports local organisations committed to the climate and nature emergencies, it provides services and facilities around the town and is a statutory consultee for planning applications and MCC consultations.

If you are passionate and community driven about all things Monmouth please consider putting yourself forward as a Town Councillor for 2022 to 2027.  If you are elected as Town Councillor you could really make a difference in your community and have the opportunity to shape the future of Monmouth.
