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. Penycae Parish Council was located in the county of Denbighshire until 1974, when its roles were taken over by Penycae Community Council and Denbighshire became part of Clwyd.
