Llanvaches Community Council is the first tier of Local Government and plays a vital role in representing the interests of the local community in which they serve and comprises seven local Councillors. Community Councils have a statutory power to precept (council tax) the local government electors in the area to finance the responsibilities that flow from the exercise of discretionary powers.
The Community Councils main responsibility is for two playing fields in the Village. The football field known as Glebeland’s is leased from The Representative Body of the Church in Wales on an ongoing lease and the playing field behind Wentwood Drive is leased from Newport City Council on a 999 year lease. The Council is wholly responsible for the grass and hedge cutting and the maintenance of the play equipment and its Members carry out fortnightly inspections to check for faults and damage.
The Council also comments on all planning applications in the village with Newport City Council making the final decision, taking into account our views.
The Councillors below can be contacted via the Clerk. The latest Member Register of Interests is from 2019.
