About us

Aber Valley Community Council is an elected tier of local government.  The Community Council represents and serves two communities: Abertridwr and Senghenydd.  There are 11 Community Councillors, 6 representing the Abertridwr Ward and 5 for the Senghenydd Ward.  Community Councillors are elected by local government electors for the community and hold a term of office for 5 years.  The Chair is elected annually at the May Community Council Annual General Meeting.  As the most local tier of elected representation, Aber Valley Community Council plays an important part in local democracy.

Aber Valley Community Council is comprised of people who care about their community and want to make it a better place to live.  As well as representing the communities to the local authority, the Community Councillors facilitate a wide range of activities which promotes the well-being of Abertridwr and Senghenydd.  They bring local people together to help make things happen and promote the identity of the communties.  They advise, petition, influence and advocate numerous causes and cases of concern on behalf of the local communities.

Aber Valley Community Council meetings are held on the second Thursday of every month (excluding August) at Senghenydd Community Centre and Abertridwr Community Centre alternately, commencing 7pm.
