Welcome and thank you for visiting the Risca Town Council website. We hope you find it interesting and informative.

Risca  (Welsh: Rhisga) is a town of approximately 12,000 people in south-east Wales, within the Caerphilly County Borough and the historic boundaries of Monmouthshire.  Risca Town Council has over 6,000 residents with a further 5.500 residents in Risca East Community Council.


However, in late 2021 it has allowed Welsh Council meetings to be in a ‘Hybrid’ format.  That is both in-person indoors and accessed by a remote virtual platform.  From 14 March 2022 Risca Town Council has resumed its monthly Council meetings with both in-person and virtual access.  If the public and press wish to attend a Council meeting then please contact the Town Clerk.  (The Clerk requires at least 3 working days prior notice to set up a remote access.)

Since May 2020 the Council has continued as much community council business as possible through the health crisis and lockdowns via a monthly Remote Virtual Meeting platform recommended by Welsh Government.

From March 2021 the Town Clerk has been publishing truncated, early, unnumbered and unsigned Council meeting minutes in a format as instructed by Welsh Government within 7 days of all council meetings – in Cymru/Wales from May 2021 this is a law.  These minutes are being added to the ‘Meetings’ folder.   All agreed and signed Full Minutes will be published as soon as possible after the hybrid meetings.

Council elections across Wales took place on 5 May 2022 with Councillors elected for a term of five years.  Seven Town Councillors were returned uncontested and one previous Member was co-opted back on to the Council in June 2022.  The new Risca Town Council held its AGM and Full Council meeting on Monday 16 May 2022.

However, since then two Member vacancies have arisen for the Fernlea and Ty Isaf Fields Wards of Risca Town.  Both vacancies are now advertised below – closing date is noon Fri 7 July 2023. (Bob Campbell, Risca Town Clerk, 19 June 2022).
