Actions from NHCC last month:

We have written to the Head of Planning with objections to the development to Car Cael, Pen-y-Fai and have reaffirmed our concerns with the proposals at Pentre Felin, fully endorsing Councillor Radcliffe and the residents questions and concerns in this matter, and have asked for BCBC to take action.
We have chosen Cllr and Chair Ann John to sit on the grants panel meeting of the Suncredit Solar Community Benefit fund.
We have authorised maintenance works in Aberkenfig, repairs to the Christmas lights and have organised and panted this year's daffodil crop.

The next NHCC meeting is tonight, at St John's Church in Aberkenfig, at 7PM, and all are welcome to attend.

Newcastle Higher Community Council meets tonight.
Among other things I am hoping to put forward a proposal to create a five year Community Action Plan, and continue moving forward with plans to remedy the drop off / pick up issues around Tondu school.
Members of the council are also speaking with a BCBC Education and Enforcement Officer for Recycling / Refuse tomorrow night to answer any questions. If you have any, please ask.

West street recycling not collected again, 3 days parents have had to walk their children passed these to get to school, with an added bag per house to add to this already narrow street, this neglect to there responsibility and duties are putting our children at risk... why isn't west street and meadow street mandatory? As these 2 narrow streets are the only way to access the school, the severity of risk to our youngest community members increases as there is little room left on the pavement, your unable to walk escorted and for those with pushchair is an obstacle course. ...
