Port Talbot - Governance

Governance

In November 1921, the borough of Port Talbot was created, incorporating Margam, Cwmafan and the older town of Aberavon. It was therefore 85 years after the phrase 'Port Talbot' was first used, that the town's name was officially and legally recognised. Historically Port Talbot is part of historic county of Glamorgan. The 1974 county council re-organisation split Glamorgan into three new counties, and Port Talbot was one of four districts of West Glamorgan.

Following the demise of the West Glamorgan County Council, the Port Talbot borough council was merged with Neath and part of Lliw Valley Districts to create the new unitary authority of Neath Port Talbot County Borough in 1996. The Civic Centre is located in Port Talbot, and the town is represented by three of the 64 councillors that make up the county council.
