Stand for Plaid in the 2017 council elections


Council elections are your chance to make a difference

The council elections take place on May 4th, 2017. With 158 elected members, Plaid Cymru currently has the second largest number of councillors in the country and we’re aiming to build on this in the election so we can protect our communities and put our political principles into practice.

Being a Councillor can be a hugely rewarding experience. It can sometimes be challenging, but it will always be worthwhile. From getting a nuisance pothole filled to setting out the ten year economic vision for the county, being elected to represent your local community offers you the opportunity to deliver meaningful change.

If they haven’t already done so, your constituency committee will soon start the nomination process to select local candidates. Some electoral wards will be hotly contested, with several members wishing to stand. Some wards may have never before had a Plaid Cymru candidate on the ballot paper.

  • What would you like to change or improve in your community?
  • What one step could the local council take to make a difference, however big or small, to you and your neighbour’s lives?
  • Would you like to see the largest number of Plaid Cymru council candidates standing across Wales?

Get in touch with your constituency officers today and ask about how you can play a part in becoming a community champion. If you’re unsure about how to go about this get in touch with us by emailing

The journey towards a Plaid Cymru Welsh Government starts with conversations you have with your neighbours and the work we do in our local communities. Stand for council and play an active role in securing a successful future for our communities and our country.
