Mawr Community Council represents the wards of Craig Cefn Parc, Felindre and Garwnswllt. It has twelve unpaid members who are elected every 4 years.
The Community Council is the first tier of local government and is funded by a precept (payment) from the council tax. Our working practises comply with our written Standing Orders (based on One Voice Wales model form) copies of which can be obtained by contacting the Clerk. We operate at ‘grass roots’ level and enable local people to make improvements to their communities. Much of our work involves maintaining our 3 Welfare Halls and land that we own and operate for the community, such as football pitches. We also run 3 Youth/Play groups in each of the halls on a weekly basis for the children in our community and surrounding areas. All planning applications are referred initially to the Community Council for comment before the decision by the County Council. We also maintains links with other public bodies and community councils.
Please contact the clerk or your local ward councillor for further information on how you can be involved.
Community Councillors are elected to represent local residents within the community; to deliver services to meet local needs; and to strive to improve the quality of life in the community they serve.
