Laleston Community Council serves the village of Laleston as well as Broadlands, Bryntirion, Cefn Glas (part) and Llangewydd Court. The Council consists 3 unequal sized wards with 13 Councillors representing the areas accordingly. (Further information can be found on “your local councillors” section). The Community Council area is covered by two County Council wards – Bryntirion & Laleston with Merthyr Mawr & Cefn Glas. You can find also find us on Facebook.
Laleston Community Council meets once a month (except August) – normally the third Thursday of the month at Bryntirion & Laleston Community Centre – when the day to day business of the Council is decided upon. The meetings are advertised well in advance and the public invited to attend. There is a provision on the Agenda for the public to voice any concerns. All meetings will start at 7.00pm unless otherwise advertised.
Laleston Community Council is funded, primarily by an annual Precept which is paid by Bridgend County Borough Council through the Council Tax. The funds are used to pay for administrative costs, support and development of assets, the environment and community projects. The assets include allotments, a multi use games area at Laleston and teenage shelters/play areas at Bryntirion, Broadlands and Cefn Glas.
LCC is a statutory consultee on community planning which means that Bridgend County Borough Council must consult us so that we can respond on behalf of the community. We also respond to consultations from Bridgend County Borough Council, Welsh Government and other bodies where the community may be affected.
Laleston Community Council provide an annual fireworks display at Bryntirion Playing Fields and are major contributors towards the annual Broadlands Fun Day. We also provide items such as bus stops, way side benches and litter bins, along with some larger projects details of which can be found in the “our projects” section.
