About us

The Local Government Act, 1972, heralded significant changes for local government in Wales.

As a consequence of the legislation, the Boundary Commission was established and its first task was a special community review which led to a re-casting of the existing pattern of Rural Parishes, Urban Districts and Boroughs all of which would become communities under the new structure to produce a pattern better fitted to support Community Councils.

In 1985, the Boundary Commission created 14 community areas in the Rhymney Valley District. This led to the formation of Maesycwmmer Community Council.

Maesycwmmer Community Council consists of 9 elected Community Councillors, and meets on the last Thursday of every month (excluding August and December) at the OAP Hall, The Crescent, Maesycwmmer.

Members of the public are able to attend meetings on an observation basis only. If there is a matter a member of the public wishes to speak upon, this can be arranged by giving notice to the Community Council Clerk.

The current council was elected in May 2017 and there is currently 1 vacancy.
