- Newport City Council has suddenly and unilaterally withdrawn the Concurrent Grant from all community councils from April 2019. This amounts to about 25% of Michaelston-y-Fedw Community Council's income. All of the community councils have protested vigorously, but have been unable to reverse Newport's decision. For the next financial year, Michaelston-y-Fedw CC can cope with the drop in income, but there is bound to be an impact on services in the longer term, and an increase in the council tax precept may become necessary at some point.
- Gwent Police & Crime Commissioner is considering an increase to the police council tax precept of £1/month for a Band D property. An on-line public consultation will be running until the 13 January. The text of the PCC's letter, including a link to the on-line consultation can be found here.
- Government auditors have completed their audit of the community council's accounts for 2017-18 and they have not identified any cause for concern. Copies of the accounts are published on this website and the related audit documents can be viewed by contacting the Clerk for an appointment.
