Following recent reports of anti-social behaviour in the Ystrad Mynach area, there will be a 48 hour Dispersal Order (Under Section 35 of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014) in place.

The designated area of the order will include; A472, Caerphilly Road, Cedar Way, Pine Grove, Trinity Close, Pen-y-Cae, Heol Brynteg, Trinity Fields School, Ystrad Mynach Park, Ystrad Mynach bowls club, Ystrad Mynach Tennis courts and all public spaced and thoroughfares nearby shown on the map.
