The records can include minute books, financial statements, correspondence, copies of planning applications, and rate lists. Community councils replaced parish councils under the local government reorganization in 1974. Brymbo Parish Council was located in the county of Denbighshire until 1974, when it became Brymbo Community Council, and Denbighshire became part of Clwyd. In 1996, Clwyd was abolished; Brymbo now lies within Wrexham County Borough.
