Welcome

Welcome to Caerphilly Town Council Website
 
 A message from the Town Mayor
 
 Councillor Mike Prew
 
Welcome to our website, I hope you find it informative and of interest. 
 
 
The Town Council is an elected tier of local government and its role is to represent the interests of the community and influence other decision makers.  The Town Council supports events in the town, is directly responsible for the town centre floral displays, for organizing the popular fireworks display in November and the annual Christmas lights switch on, and from 2019 will meet the full cost of the Caerphilly Lantern Parade. The Town Council provides grants to local organisations that demonstrate benefits for residents of the town area.  The Council is a consultee on all planning applications that are submitted within the Morgan Jones and St. Martin's Wards.
 
During my second year as the Town Mayor I will visit various events and attend functions as a leading representative of the community.  My charities for the year are Caerffili Lions and Velindre Hospital.
 
The Town Council has introduced a new Community Service Award to recognise the outstanding contributions to the community made by an individual or group within Caerphilly town.  I look forward to receiving your nominations.
 
The Town Council meets monthly and members of the public are always welcome to attend.  If there is a particular matter on which you wish to speak this can be arranged by giving notice to the Town Clerk.
 
Different groups in the town such as the young, elderly and disabled have differing needs and I will be happy to receive any suggestions you would like to make about the work of the Town Council or information you would like to see on the website.  Contact details can be found on this page.

Caerphilly / Caerffili
 
Famous for its castle and its cheese, the town dates back many hundreds of years.
The castle was built between 1268 and 1271 by Gilbert de Clare to subdue the local Welsh lords.
The identity of Ffili remains a mystery, despite the town being named 'Ffili’s Fort', which may refer to the Roman auxiliary fort in the castle grounds.
