County elections[edit]

The ward elects four county councillors to Conwy County Borough Council and, at the May 2017 election, all four seats were won by the Welsh Conservative Party.[3] Newly elected councillor, James Lusted, was a well-known local actor and television presenter who has dwarfism. He pledged to campaign for people with disabilities.[4] At 43 inches tall he became the Conservative Party's shortest elected politician.[5]
