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. This was revised in September 2013 and further revised in November 2019. The Vale of Glamorgan Charter with Town and Community Councils agreed on 4th November 2019 can be viewed here. 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.
The Council’s Community Liaison Committee, consisting of representatives from Town and Community Councils and Members of the Council is to be the vehicle that considers the Charter and monitors any Action Plan to ensure effective monitoring takes place and to monitor progress.
It was intented that the Charter be reviewed every four years following the Local Government Elections or more often if there is considered a need to do so. However, Local Government Elections have recently been amended to take place on a five yearly basis and therefore, the Charter will be reviewed having regard to this timescale or more often if there is considered a need to do so.
