Rhymney Community Council represents and serves several small communities in South East Wales: Abertysswg, Pontlottyn and Rhymney.

Often these communities have different interests. The Council balances the needs of different elements of the community to get the best result.

Rhymney Community Council is responsible for the services it provides. It establishes policies for action and decides how money will be raised and spent on behalf of the community. It is responsible for spending public money lawfully and without risk, and for achieving the best value for money.

The ‘Parish’ or ‘Community Council’ originated in the 8th Century and is one of the most ancient types of local government. The Council is made up of 15 individual Councillors who contribute to the work of the whole council by:
