What Solva Community Council Does

Solva Community Council tries to continually improve local services in order to meet the needs both of residents and of Solva’s many visitors. Its general role is to act as a voice for its local area. This involves articulating the views and concerns of Solva people on a wide range of issues of public concern, and making representations to Pembrokeshire County Council and other public-sector bodies.

The Community Council works in partnership with a range of organisations – such as Pembrokeshire County Council, local law enforcement (Dyfed-Powys Police), the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority and the National Trust – in order to ensure that Solva remains an attractive place to live, visit and work.

Decision making is carried out by 8 elected Members, who represent Solva’s roughly 656 people of voting age. However, the Community Council is not party political – enabling each member to vote as an individual on all matters that concern Solva, Whitchurch and Middle Mill.

Day-to-day operations are carried out by the Clerk, supported by contractors for specialist jobs such as Grounds Maintenance.
