  • What is the role of the Council?

    Galway City Council, as a local authority, performs two roles:

    • Representational Role
    • Operational / Executive Role

    The Operational / Executive Role is performed by the Council staff, under the leadership of the City Manager and The Management Team with responsibility for a range of services.

    • Housing
    • Planning
    • Roads
    • Water supply and sewerage
    • Development incentives and controls
    • Environmental protection
    • Recreation facilities and amenities

    In addition to the functions outlined above, a fundamental role of democratically elected local government is the representation of local communities, voicing local concerns and responding to local needs.
