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].


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. 


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.
