My mother lives in Hirwaun and she has not recieved anything asking her opinion.
The article in the Aberdare Leader also mentions the old Hirwaun pond area,wasn't that where the coal tip was just behind Penderyn road?
I find it hard to believe that no one has contacted the council with objections.

If the vote for and against is split 50 - 50 it shows there is no definite opinion on the open cast mining prposal. Maybe it would be beneficial if you worked there and did'nt live too close whereas if you live within polution distance you'd be against the development.

I'm nuetral on this one as it won't affect me one way or the other. But I will still be interested in the final outcome.

The Boys at Tower are now Right Wing and they are better off for it. They know that money is what it is all about. Tyrone O'sullivan was a lefty but not no more. he has seen the error of his ways he is now a true blue. Nice home in the Gower and loads of money in the bank. "Man after my own heart". They must mine all the coal they can. Hirwaun is a hole anyway so an opencast won't make a Diff.
