A lack of consultation with residents over potential disruption from works relating to the Northern Access Road is deeply worrying, South Wales Central AM Andrew RT Davies has said.
Residents of Millands Park in Llanmaes have raised concerns that access to their homes may be impeded – but there has been no engagement with them on this.
It is feared that any closure of the lane at Froglands – running from Eglwys Brewis Road to Llanmaes village – would be hugely problematic – since the other two entrances to the Park are often inaccessible due to flooding.
Mr Davies has written to Cabinet Secretary for Economy and Infrastructure Ken Skates demanding that action be taken to clarify matters – and provide alternative access arrangements if necessary.
He also raised the issue in the Senedd – and Leader of the House Julie James confirmed that his officials would liaise with both Mr Davies and residents to satisfactorily resolve the situation.
Mr Davies said, “I have been contacted by residents of Millands Park concerned that they may not be able to access their homes – and it is deeply worrying that the situation is so unclear.
“With the other two lanes into the Park regularly out of use – it is vital that proper arrangements are put in place if any closure of the main entrance takes place.
“I have therefore written to the Cabinet Secretary asking him to clarify the situation – and take action to address any potential lack of access.
“I also raised the matter with in the Assembly – and I’m pleased the Leader of the House has confirmed that officials will liaise with me and residents to sort things out.
“I will continue to work with residents to ensure the situation is resolved properly.”
