At the 2017 elections Plaid Cymru regained their seat.

Seiont's Independent councillor Roy Owen was leader of the Independent group for ten years on the county council, until he resigned from the group in May 2017 to form the Gwynedd United Independents. Cllr Owen made the news in 2018 when he personally filled in over 90 potholes in the ward's highways, though Gwynedd Council advised him to stop.
