Welsh Local Government Association

The Welsh Local Government Association ( _cy. Cymdeithas Llywodraeth Leol Cymru) is a part of the Local Government Association of England and Wales but a group specifically for Wales.

The Welsh Local Government Association was established in 1996 to represent the interests of local government in Wales. Since 1999 the WLGA has had a specific role in representing local government to the National Assembly for Wales.

Its members are the twenty-two local authorities in Wales. Also four police authorities, three fire and rescue authorities and three national park authorities are associate members.

The WLGA considers that its primary purposes are to promote better local government and thereputation of local government, and to support local authorities in the development of policies and priorities which will improve public services and democracy. Town and community councils are outside the WLGA's ambit. They are represented by "One Voice Wales" [ [http://www.onevoicewales.org.uk/ One Voice Wales] ]
