A Freedom of Information request to the ombudsman by Plaid Cymru campaigner and local resident Ioan Bellin revealed complaints about Llantwit Fardre Community Council ranged from accountability and integrity, promotion of equality and respect to a duty to upholding the law although none were upheld.

Between October 2019 and December 2019 15 complaints were made, there were six between January and March 2020 and a further one between July 2020 and September 2020.

Plaid’s £500m flooding fund to help communities left behind by Labour

A Plaid government, if elected on May 6th, would commit £500m to improving Wales flood defences and support the communities “left behind by Labour” in recent years. 

In a ground-breaking commitment, Plaid Cymru MS for the Rhondda Leanne Wood said that major storms over the last few years had devastated homes in her community, nearby Pontypridd, and in many other areas of Wales from Llanrwst to Caerphilly.
