This morning (5 October 2021), Heledd Fychan MS for South Wales Central visited some of the communities affected overnight by flooding.
Having received tens of messages by people flooded, or worried that they would flood, Heledd was out knocking doors in Pontypridd, Cilfynydd and Rhydyfelin to witness the damage with her own eyes and to discuss with residents and businesses any support they require.Read more
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.
