Llanrhian Community Council represents the communities and surrounding areas of Croesgoch, Trefin, Llanrhian, Penparc, Square & Compass, Llanhowel and includes the coastal communities of Abereiddi and Porthgain. The area includes a section of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park known for its spectacular coastline.

The history of the area stretches back to the early medieval era, and during the 19th and early 20th centuries was known for its quarrying, and the remains of many buildings from this industrial past can still be seen, including the old mill at Trefin which dates from the 1400’s and is famous for being the subject of a poem by Crwys. Earlier evidence of human habitation exists with a 5,000 year old Neolithic burial chamber, Carreg Sampson, overlooking Abercastle.

Today, economic activity in the area is predominately driven by agriculture, fishing and tourism. The area has a slowly declining number of residents, with the latest population estimate being 873, with 30.2% being over 65 years of age and around 12% being aged 0-17 (source Office for National Statistics 2011). These contrast with the Welsh average of around 20% being over 65, and around 18% under 17. Of the 503 homes in the area, 83 are classed as second homes, illustrating the decline in permanent residency, and the increasing reliance on tourism.

Llanrhian Community Council is one of 78 community councils in Pembrokeshire, and forms the lowest tier of local government in Wales. The council is made up of 9 councillors and a Clerk, all living locally, and is committed to the effective representation of and betterment of the area.
