The Isle of Anglesey County Council ( ) is the governing body for the county of Angleseymarker, one of the unitary authority areas of Walesmarker. The council consists of 40 councillors, representing 40 electoral wards.

Political divisions

Unlike most other councils in Wales, Anglesey's councillors do not divide along party-political lines. Following the 2008 elections, only Plaid Cymru and Labour have maintained a group on the Council. Some Councillors elected on party political tickets or believed to have party political allegiances do not form, or join, party groups. The remaining councillors, both party-political and independent, form a number of factions based as much on personalities as policy. Since the 2008 elections, the largest of these factions was the Original Independents ( ), with 22 councillors.

Electoral divisions

The county is divided into 40 electoral wards returning 40 councillors. There are 40 communities (parishes) in the area, some of which have their own elected council. Few communities are coterminous with council wards. In Anglesey, they mostly overlap. The following table lists council wards, communities and associated geographical areas.
