Statement - review of plaques, statues and memorials
The Leader and Deputy Leader of the Council have today (June 10) made a joint statement in relation to a review of all statues, busts, plaques and memorials on Council-owned sites.
Joint Statement from Councillor Andrew Morgan, Leader of Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council, and Councillor Maureen Webber, Deputy Leader of Rhondda Cynon Taf Council: “We have asked Council Officers to carry out an urgent review of all Local Authority-owned sites and buildings in the County Borough to determine what statues, busts, plaques and memorials are present at these locations.
“If it is the case that any of these may be deemed inappropriate then we will be requesting Officers to ensure that they are removed from those particular locations. The Council prides itself on being an inclusive, diverse and equal organisation, and we would like to fully reassure residents that we condemn all forms of racism and discrimination."
