The role of the Community Council
The Community Council is made up of volunteers from across Llangybi, Coed Y Paen, Llandegfedd, Llanhennock, Tredunnock and the Llangattock Nigh Caerleon area. The Council represents the interest and views of the community and welcomes members of the public at its meetings. The electorate is represented in the following way:
Llangybi has 3 councillors and the other 5 wards have 1 councillor each.
The Council undertakes a variety of work on behalf of the community, liaising with local Police, Highways Departments, Monmouthshire County Council and the Planning Department. We maintain contact with HM Prison Usk and Prescoed throughout the year, sharing information through Councillor Graham Rogers, who sits on the Prison Liaison Committee. The meetings are attended by County Councillor Fay Bromfield to encourage closer links between Monmouthshire County Council and the community.
The Council receives an annual precept from Monmouthshire County Council. Each year we review on-going financial commitments such as donations to our churches as well as ad hoc requests from the Community. In addition we support the repair/maintenance of local amenities as well as general administrative expenses.
Minutes are taken at each meeting and are placed on local notice boards and logged on the website.
Local residents are most welcome to attend.
