Welcome to the Briton Ferry Town Council

Briton Ferry (Welsh: Llansawel) is a town and community in the county borough of Neath Port Talbot, Wales. The town encompasses the electoral wards of Briton Ferry East and Briton Ferry West. Situated on the mouth of the River Neath where it enters Swansea Bay and was the first river crossing along the Roman road that followed the coastline along that part of South Wales.

The Town Council consists of twelve members, the Town Council is administered by the Town Clerk.  Council meetings are held monthly on the last Wednesday of the month at which the Town Mayor presides.

Each meeting is open to the public other than for certain confidential matters which will be held in private. Until such time as the Council is able to hold hybrid meetings, all meetings will be held via Zoom. Meetings commence at 6:00pm. The Council Agenda is usually posted on the Councils website one week before the meeting and will contain contact details.

Hybrid meetings are those at which members and the public can attend either in person or via Zoom or equivalent.

You can contact any member of the ward here or if you would like to keep updated about the Town Councils meetings, agendas, notices, minutes and accounts you can subscribe to our newsletter where you will be updated about all the news being posted to our website.
