Welcome to Monmouth Gov UKThe market town of Monmouth, situated on the South Wales border, by the banks of the River Wye.
The town has historic connections with early Roman and medieval times, and its most famous sons are Henry V and Charles Rolls, of Rolls-Royce fame. With a current population of 10,000 it has easy access to Cardiff, Bristol and the Midlands via motorway links.
The web site contains current Town Council Agendas and Minutes, detailed histories, information about local Clubs and Organizations, and a contacts page for your convenience.
The Mayor and the Town Councillors invite you to learn more about their town and hope you will visit Monmouth in person in the near future.
Congratulations to Cllr Chris Munslow who was co-opted at a meeting on 21st July, to become the new member representing the Town Ward.
The (small) Community Projects grant scheme has been opened earlier this year and applications are invited by the closing date of 30th September 2014.
The Community Affairs Committee of Monmouth Town Council has a budget of £9000 to distribute as grants to fund Community projects.
Applications are invited from local voluntary groups and charitable organisations from within Monmouth Town Council boundaries – Monmouth Town, Drybridge, Overmonnow, Wyesham, Dixton and Osbaston. The Council will consider the award of grants of up to 75% of the total cost of projects, equipment or on-going running costs. The maximum grant available will not normally be more than £750 and the applicants will be expected to raise 25% of the whole cost of the project or the equipment through fund raising activities.
Applications may be submitted for contributions to projects costing up to £5000 and will be considered on their merit providing other sources of funding the balance have been secured. Applications from national organisations having local branches may be considered, but must demonstrate that the project will be of benefit, either directly or indirectly, to communities in Monmouth
At the Planning Committee meeting on Monday 21st July, 6.45pm in the Shire Hall, County Councillor Liz Hacket Pain and Simon Kneafsey, a representative from MCC Leisure, will talk to Town Councillors about plans and options for the new Monmouth Comprehensive School and the public swimming pool.
As all Town Council meetings, this is open to the public, and at the Chair's discretion, members of the public may also ask questions.
