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. 



Request for Consideration of Matter by Community Liaison Committee

A representative from each of the Town and Community Councils sits on the Community Liaison Committee that meets approximately three times a year.  Town and Community Councils are able to request that a matter be considered at the Community Liaison Committee by completing a Request for Consideration proforma and returning it to Democratic Services (e-mail: 


Please note that requests MUST be made by Members of the Town or Community Council VIA their Clerk only, not directly by members of the public.  If a member of the public wishes a matter to be considered, it must be processed via their Community Council Clerk.

Guidance on Clustering

As requested by Town and Community Councils (TCCs), this guidance note has been put together by the Vale of Glamorgan Council (VoG Council) to provide TCCs with information on clustering to support their decision-making processes.
