Bridgend Town Council

Bridgend Town Council is one of four Town Councils and 16 Community Councils in the County Borough of Bridgend on the southern coastal belt of the Principality.

Located in the south of the Borough it adjoins seven community councils (Brackla, Coychurch-Lower, Ewenny, Merthyr Mawr, Laleston, Newcastle Higher and Coity Higher) and the Vale of Glamorgan County Borough.

The immediate town’s population is about 15,000, distributed over three Wards (Morfa, Newcastle and Oldcastle) and represented by 19 town councillors. However, this population can be trebled when including surrounding areas within a couple of miles of the Town Centre; namely

  • Pendre (2,500)
  • Litchard (2,500)
  • Brackla (10,000)
  • Coychurch (1,500)
  • Ewenny (1,000)
  • Broadlands (4,500),
  • Bryntirion (1,500)
  • Cefn Glas (4,500) and
  • Pen-y-Fai (2,500)

but outside the political/administrative boundaries of Bridgend Town Council.
