Welcome to Neath Town Council

'Working for the Community'

Neath Town Council is a community council serving the centre and surrounding area.

Neath is a compact, classic market town with charm and character. The Romans established a fort in Neath in circa 75 AD and a Norman castle was built around 1100 AD. The town was awarded a historic charter in 1280 by Gilbert de Clare, Lord of the Borough, this being the first official protection of the town as a trading centre.

The historic character of the town is evident from its built environment and street patterns, a legacy of previous times. Today it is an attractive historic market town with a Victorian Market and major multiple retailers at the core of the commercial area.

Neath has excellent transport links with main line railway connections to London, Cardiff and Swansea while the M4 motorway is a short distance away. The A465 'Heads of the Valleys' trunk road passes close to the town and gives access to the Midlands and beyond. Regular bus services link the town to the surrounding valleys.

Neath also has a unique rugby heritage, the Welsh Rugby Union was inaugurated in the town's Castle Hotel in 1872, and the town's senior club is among the oldest in Wales.
