County Borough Councillor Andrew Morgan, Leader of the Council said:

“We know what an emotive subject any service change proposals are for those potentially affected, and we want to ensure that everyone who may be impacted upon has the opportunity to have their say.

“In December Cabinet determined to provide further information to consultees and agreed for the consultation period to be extended until the end of January, which can only help provide the Cabinet with further information from consultation responses that will allow us to make an informed and evidenced-based decision.

“So far, six of these sessions have taken place throughout Rhondda, Cynon and Taf, in addition to the question and answer sessions held with the Cabinet in September and I am pleased to be able to confirm the details of a further three events which will take place in Llantrisant Leisure Centre, Abercynon Leisure Centre and Rhondda Sports Centre, Ystrad, in January on the following dates:
