Charter between the Vale of Glamorgan Council and Town and Community Councils

In February 2008 the Vale of Glamorgan Council, together with 21 of the 26 Town and Community Councils within the Vale, established a Charter. It sets out the aims for working together, to build on existing good practice, to embrace the principles of openness, honesty, respect for each other’s opinions and the common priorities of putting citizens at the centre. 


A working group of Town and Community Council Clerks and Council officers was also set up to draw up an Action Plan.  This was to develop the principles within the Charter which was endorsed by the Councils Community Liaison Committee on and approved by its Cabinet on .


The Council’s Community Liaison Committee, consisting of representatives from Town and Community Councils and Members of the Council is to be the vehicle to ensure that effective monitoring of the Action Plan takes place and to monitor its progress.


It is intended that the Charter is fully reviewed every four years following local elections or more often if there is considered a need to do so. 


On 9th September, 2013 the Charter was revised and subsequently agreed by Cabinet [Revised Charter].
