Persimmon Homes Coed Dyffryn Aberaman
Posted by Lewis on the 4th July 2014
Yesterday I called in on Persimmon Homes Coed Dyffryn Aberaman to enquire about the reinstatement of public footpath destroyed during the heavy rain and rising water in the River Cynon.
The representative at the site office said the residents are in talks with Rhondda Cynon Taf Council about the reinstatement of the footpath.
The representative said, “There were concerns about the people using the path” I presume walking through the site to the many industrial retail outlets that adjoin Coed Dyffryn Aberaman.
I questioned the Persimmon representative that the problem has only raised since the Flooding River Cynon back in January when a large volume of material was placed on the footpath, as the floodwater was getting higher.
Persimmon Homes representative said, “ THE MATERIAL WAS PLACED ON THE FOOTPATH TO STOP PEOPLE USING THE FOOTPATH NOT BECAUSE OF FLOODING”
The mound has been removed for some months now, the once tarmac section of footpath is now just rough hardcore difficult to walk or push a wheelchair.
All Aberaman and Cwmbach residents want to know when will the tarmac be reinstated.
E-mailing Persimmon Homes no response received, it shows the company policy is to ignore local residents concerns.
