Flooding

For nearly two years now, along with victims of the floods, I have been campaigning for an independent inquiry into the floods – something which was supported by thousands of people across RCT. But despite voting in favour of an inquiry into the floods in England, our MPs here in RCT have continually refused to support one here in Wales as has the Welsh Government.

I am therefore very pleased to see that, through the Co-operation agreement with the Welsh Government, that Plaid Cymru has secured an independent review into the floods. We are focused on making a difference and it is only because of community pressure and our influence in the Senedd that we are making progress on this issue. The review is an important step towards justice for flooding victims across RCT.

    Q: Do you think you should receive compensation? If yes, from whom?
    A: Yes from the people that created the problem which is namely NRW, the council should also be held responsible for the lack of maintenance to the drains in the area which obviously became apparent when the flood occurred.
    The lack of sandbags for flood defences at the properties we’re not made available to residents unless flooding was imminent, this was a directive made by the council leader Andrew Morgan which I raised in the meeting we attended, he stated they were available but I had phoned for help and was informed we could not have any even though I offered to collect them with my trailer at the time..

    Q: Do you hold any organisation responsible for the floods? Please explain why.
    A: NRW and the council. The cutting of the tree shrubbery and the overall lack of cleaning of the drainage system in Pentre was a contributory factor in the streets flooding.
    The main aspect of the flood is due to NRW’s directive to strip the trees and leave the resulting shrubbery on the ground which resulted in it blocking the culvert and subsequent draining system
