Caerphilly County Borough Council has launched a new mobile customer service centre.
The vehicle will visit a number of the county borough’s more rural towns and villages on a weekly basis, and will offer a wide range of council services including paying council tax, council rent, requesting a council housing repair and a host of others.
The mobile service centre visits the following towns and villages on a weekly basis
- Tuesday: Deri Community Centre between 9.30am and 11pm and Rhymney, Rear of Rhymney Royal, between 2pm and 3.30pm.
- Wednesday: Nelson, next to the bus station, between 9.15am and 10.45pm and Trinant, Trinant Terrace, between 2pm and 3.30pm.

Cllr Barbara Jones, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Corporate Services, said: “Our main aim in delivering this new service is to ensure that our county borough’s residents have easy access to council services in a format which is preferable to them.
“By introducing this mobile customer service facility, we’re able to deliver key council services in the heart of many of our more rural communities, which I’m sure will be warmly welcomed by our residents”.
