Welcome

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.

WELSH GOVERNMENT IS AWARE THAT THE CORONAVIRUS HEALTH CRISIS HAS NOT GONE AWAY. 

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.

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 to the Town Council.  The new Risca Town Council held its AGM and Full Council meeting on Monday 16 May 2022.

A Member vacancy had arisen for the Dan y Graig Ward of Risca Town and the Council duly advertised for the co option of a Councillor.  Mike Parker, the previous Mayor offered to restand as the co-opted Member for the Day y Graig Ward and the Council were pleased to confirm his co-option on 13 June 2022.  (Bob Campbell, Risca Town Clerk ,4 July 2022).
