A victory for local campaigners as it has been announced a High Court Judge has ruled against controversial school reorganisation plans proposed by Labour run Rhondda Cynon Taf
Earlier today, 30 July 2020, it was announced that a High Court Judge has ruled against controversial school reorganisation plans proposed by Labour run Rhondda Cynon Taf Council.
In a post on Facebook following the announcement, County Councillor for Pontypridd Town and Senedd candidate Heledd Fychan wrote
"Congratulations to parents and campaigners that have been fighting against the school re-organisation plans in the wider Pontypridd area. It is a campaign that I have fully supported, and have asked the Council to reconsider on a number of occasions."
"I wish to pay tribute to the campaigners, who have successfully challenged Rhondda Cynon Taf Council in their plans to reorganize schools in Pontypridd. I sincerely hope that the Council will learn important lessons from this, and take the opportunity to listen to the objections, concerns and alternative ideas when re-thinking the plans.
There is now an opportunity to do something different, which will meet the needs of our children and young people and I know the community will be happy to work with the Council on developing those plans."
