Acton Community Council was established in April 1985 together with the other three Wrexham Town Centre Community Councils of Caia Park, Offa and Rhosddu. 

 The website of One Voice Wales has a detailed section providing basic information and leaflets on the role of community and town councils and how to become a Councillor that answers most of the questions asked by potential candidates.
