Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
Civil parish councils were established by the Local Government Act 1894, taking over responsibilities from parish vestry meetings. The records can include minute books, financial statements, correspondence, copies of planning applications, and rate lists. Community councils replaced parish councils under the local government reorganization in 1974. Llangiwg Parish Council, in Glamorgan, was replaced by Pontardawe Community Council, in West Glamorgan, now in Neath Port Talbot.
