It has come to the Commission’s attention that there is some confusion over the review it is conducting in Rhondda Cynon Taf and the potential effect of our Draft Proposals.

The Commission has proposed that the community ward of Tyle-garw be represented in an electoral ward with the Community of Pont-y-clun for the purposes of county council representation only. There will be absolutely no change to the underlying community arrangements. The community ward of Tyle-garw will remain in the Community of Llanharry and remain an important part of it.

There will be no transfer of lands, services, amenities or council tax precepts as a result of the Commission’s proposals. The Commission is only proposing areas for county councillors to represent.

The Commission welcomes representations concerning this potential change in county council representation but issues concerning transfers of land, services and council tax precept will not be included when the Commission is considering the representations it receives.
