Councillors are set to vote on a proposal to ban the The Sun newspaper and its journalists from Flintshire County Council offices.
The motion has been put forward by Deputy Leader Cllr Bernie Attridge and Cllr Kevin Hughes. It also seeks to ban Sun journalists from reporting on council meetings.
However it has been met with criticism from the Welsh Conservatives. Shadow Local Government Secretary, Janet Finch-Saunders said it was was an attempt at 'censorship of the media'.
Leader of the Welsh Conservatives Andrew RT Davies echoed the criticism on social media.
Councillors will discuss the motion at the next full council meeting on September 27.
However a Flintshire County Council spokesperson said the motion is currently being considered to 'ensure it's legality' before it is placed in the agenda for September.
