An Important Date for our Green Spaces

The Local Development Plan currently being developed by Swansea Council reaches an important Milestone next Thursday when the completed Stage 1 of the Plan goes before Swansea Council for discussion. The fact that Swansea have had such a tremendous response to the plans, with over 41,000 residents commenting on 558 sites, shows the strength of feeling in many communities on many of the proposed sites.

In the Gorseinon and Loughor areas, Plaid have taken a proactive approach and hosted our own "Consultation events" to involve the community. We have worked with local residents to re-nominate land as Green-belt under the new Plan.

With the local elections on the horizons, elected members will also be sensitive to the views of the public on this issue. It will in all likelihood be a key topic during the election campaign. A strong public presence at next week's meeting will send our elected representatives an important signal.

Our position in Lliw Valley Plaid is clear and unambiguous. We will campaign to protect our existing green spaces under the new Plan and will continue our good work with local communities to do so.

  1. We need a red marquee event soon after the LDP next stage is known. How about mid March?
