PLAN OF ACTION TO ASSIST RHYDYFELIN FLOOD VICTIMS

 

Jane Davidson AM yesterday (10 June 2009) met with Cllr Maureen Webber, officials from the Assembly Government, the local authority, RCT Homes, Newydd Housing and the Environment Agency regarding the Rhydyfelin residents affected by the flooding which hit the area over the past weekend.

 

During the meeting the following “Action Points” were agreed:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jane Davidson said:

 

“We made some very positive steps towards addressing many of the difficulties faced by the people of Rhydyfelin during the meeting.

 

“There is still a great deal to do, but I am confident that, with the help and involvement of the community, we can work towards addressing this extremely worrying difficulty.

 

“I would like to remind those living in the affected areas that comments and ideas regarding the Flood Alleviation Scheme would be most welcome. Completion of flood questionnaires, which can be collected from the Ilan Community Centre, will ensure that the experts have up to date information on which areas have been most affected. I would strongly urge all those who have yet to fill a questionnaire to do so. Alternatively, residents may wish to pass this information to either my office (01443 406400) or Cllr Maureen Webber for those in the Rhydyfelin Central ward (01443 409008), and Cllr Teresa Bates for those in the Hawthorn ward (01443 662079).”
