CLYNE VALLEY PATHS - WORK STARTS MONDAY, 8 MARCH
Councillors Cheryl Philpott, Jeff Jones, Mary Jones & Mike Day were informed on 4 March that the work is to begin on creating the Olchfa Link Shared Use Path (SUP) in Clyne Valley. Work will start in Olchfa Lane & letters have been sent to residents living there. Cllr. Mike Day said, ‘I am sorry that the Council are proceeding with the scheme when there still remain a number of concerns about safety and environmental issues. Officers have said that changes have been made but we are yet to see what they are.’
Cllr. Cheryl Philpott added, ‘If proper communication had been undertaken in the first place, a lot of time, effort and anxiety would have been avoided. We want to see the Valley being accessed by more people but also protected for future generations.’
We will keep you informed as we receive communication about future developments.
The Sketty Lib Dems are listening even if Labour won't. We submitted the petition signed by over 650 people which was rejected initially and then again on appeal. We believe that this is a shocking response. The Labour controlled cabinet has effectively dismissed the views of hundreds of residents and users of the Valley.
But some progress has been made - we will keep taking signatures on the petition as this publicly shows the concerns of residents & helps us to keep you informed:
