What are Trustees doing to protect Ynysangharad Park?

April 29, 2013 4:53 PM

Despite all the controversy, the significant investment of public money, and the importance that RCT's Labour Cabinet seem to put on the regeneration of the Lido, the Trustees of Ynysangharad Park have not met since August 2012.

They met then briefly to rubber stamp the decision which had already been taken by the Cabinet to press ahead with the plans, including the removal of the paddling pool which has been opposed by thousands of Pontypridd residents.

The Trustees are comprised of three Labour Cabinet Members and since May 2009 they have met only five times. On three of those occasions the purpose was to discuss the Roll of Honour.

It seems that the Trustees have very little say on, or interest in, the Park and the Lido. They have to declare an interest when it is discussed in Cabinet or Council and so cannot express any views there.

Surely the Trustees of the Park should come from the community of Pontypridd, and have a genuine interest in what happens to it. Not be mere puppets following the Party line and taking no notice at all of residents views.
