Ynysybwl & Coed-y-cwm Community Council consists of 12 members that represent the residents and businesses of Ynysybwl & Coed-y-Cwm. The Councillors are elected by the public to serve a term of mostly four years. They give up their time on a voluntary basis and are not paid for the work they do, nor do they receive expenses.

The Clerk is based at the old police station, Paget Street on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (please see contact page for YCC opening times). Meetings are usually held on the first Tuesday of each month at Ynysybwl Community Centre, Windsor Place, Ynysybwl at 6.45pm, with the exception of August.
