Croeso :: Welcome

Welcome to Ynysybwl & Coed-y-cwm Community Council

Ynysybwl & Coed-y-cwm Community Council consists of 12 members that represent the residents and businesses of Ynysybwl & Coed-y-Cwm. The Councillors are elected by the public to serve a term of mostly four years. They give up their time on a voluntary basis and are not paid for the work they do.

The Community Council has one paid employee, Annemarie Bevan Edwards, who is Clerk and Responsible Financial Officer to the Community Council. The Clerk is based at the old police station, Paget Street on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (please be aware these times may change - see contact page for YCC opening times). Meetings are usually held on the first Tuesday of each month at Ynysybwl Community Centre, Windsor Place, Ynysybwl at 6.45pm, with the exception of August. The Notice of the Monthly meetings are placed on the notice board in the village and in Coed-y-Cwm and also on the website.
