04 February 2019LOCAL DEMOCRACY AND BOUNDARY COMMISSION
The Local Democracy and Boundary Commission for Wales have completed the first stage of their review and propose to split up the Penprysg Ward which includes Penprysg in Pencoed and Coychurch Higher (Heol y Cyw, Wern Tarw, Rhiwceiliog etc.).
They propose to transfer Coychurch Higher from Penprysg Ward to Bryncethin Ward which will be represented by one Councillor, and the Penprysg part to be merged with Hendre (as opposed to Coychurch Higher), which will be represented by two Councillors.
The proposed name will be Bryncethin Ward. A copy of the document can be seen on request to the Clerk.
All observations are to be made by 15 April which gives residents the opportunity to see the document and consider their response.
