Haigside allotment users in Treherbert Should Look To Aberaman North
Posted by Lewis on the 4th April 2008
Deputy Leader Of RCT Councillor Anthony Christopher made sure the allotments adjoining his street were purchased by RCT from a private owner, well his farther had an allotment on the site at the time.
If it good enough for RCT to purchase Ynyslwyd allotments Aberaman it must be good enough for RCT to purchase Haigside allotment users in Treherbert.
I would suggest the campaigners contact the councillor for Aberaman North to champion their campaign.
Plaid Cymru AM Leanne Wood called on the council to remove the land from the local development plan either by starting proceedings for compulsory purchase of the allotments or by renting the land.
Conservatives said they were committed to helping communities nominate areas of green space, which will then be protected from development.
Liberal Democrats said it was "amazing" that at a time when greener, healthier lifestyles were being promoted, local allotments could be under threat.
