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 have any other comments?
    A: It would be some comfort to the residents to see some action taken by NRW and clean the river banks of flood debris, a constant reminder of the flood, and RCT to do some clean up of the roads.

    Q: Do you hold any organisation responsible for the floods? Please explain why.
    A: Welsh Water. The spike in river levels originated at Pontsticill which is on the Taff Fechan and feeds in to the Taff. The rise in river levels needs to be looked into and assurances given that it will not happen again and those responsible brought to account. There is a story of emails being sent to businesses warning that this would happen. This needs investigating and those responsible need to be asked why they put the lives of people at risk by not giving warning.
