Phurnacite: Worst Toxic Waste left anywhere in the United Kingdom said Ann Clwyd
Posted by Lewis on the 9th January 2008
There has been a few letters in the local press recently about the land that once was occupied by the Phurnacite.
It would seem once again Plaid and Labour is contradicting each other on proposals about the former smokeless fuel plant that closed in 1990.
17 years have now past and the land is still contaminated with no sign of major improvements other than the removal of part of the Toxic legacy left for the residents of Abercwmboi.
The former WDA were responsible for improving the site at Abercwmboi but that quango was scrapped by the Welsh Assembly. As we now have Plaid and Labour governing Wales, why don’t they stop bitching to each other and do something about it.
As our Mp Ann Clwyd said back in 2003 “the residents of Abercwmboi have lived next to 28 acres of highly contaminated land—some of the worst toxic waste left anywhere in the United Kingdom. It is high time we saw action rather this snail's-pace progress, if it can be described as progress at all.”
Don’t forget the elections are in May
