Welcome to the Llangan Community Council website

 New Treoes Children's play park

Plans published and consultation now open

Some good news in these very difficult times. The Vale of Glamorgan Council has confirmed that it has allocated £85,000 to upgrade and improve the children's play park in Treoes. The condition of the park has been a concern to local residents, your local Vale of Glamorgan councillor and the Community Council for some time. So, we are delighted the work is to go ahead.

 The Vale of Glamorgan Council would like the view of local residents and the consultation period is open until 18th May 2020.

 ABOUT US

Llangan community council represents the villages of Llangan, Treoes and St Mary Hill. The council meets on the first Tuesday of each month (no meeting on August - Occasionally we have to change the date, so do check Council Information page) to discuss local issues. We are actively engaged in protecting and improving the quality of life for all those living and working in our local area and promoting self-help initiatives within our rural community.  

 Our key aims are:

  • to act as a link between public sector organisations and the community on a range of subjects including the environment, planning, community facilities, community safety and other issues affecting the area
  • to develop a picture of community needs in order to influence services and policies
  • to represent the views of the community
  • Provide a wide range of advice, information and support for the community and local voluntary groups.
  • identify concerns and issues and seek to develop solutions with other partner organisations
  • support community projects and groups

Members of the public are welcome to attend our meetings which are held on the first Tuesday of every month (accept July when it is the first Monday) at Llangan Old School Rooms at 7pm.  There is a public session at every meeting for you to express your views/ ask questions.  The agenda for each meeting is published here a few days before the meeting.
