Tonyrefail Spring News

Park Lane

The biggest obstacle for many people to get to see a doctor in Tonyrefail actually lies outside of the surgery. Many people have contacted me regarding the state of Park Lane, which leads to the surgery, and I have written to the council many times. Following a meeting with the patients forum group I wrote again, but this time the council have agreed to look at the problem.

As the road is unadopted they have no duty to do anything, so it was a great day when they said that they will, at last, look at it. The surgery have said that they will be willing to contribute to the work, which makes the whole job more likely to happen. #WatchThisSpace

Drop those kerbs

I asked the council to look at three areas. Station Road was one, as it needs to be more wheelchair accessible, as does the area around the Celyn Isaf/Tylchawen Terrace junction, and Heol Tŷ Llwyd. I was told Station Road would cost too much, Heol Tŷ Llwyd will be looked at with a view to commence work next year but Tylchawen Terrace will be done! I will continue to press for Station Road to be done #2outof3AintBad

Bough Down

You don’t have to come to a PACT meeting to raise your concerns. Within a couple of weeks of asking me to act when he saw one tree dangerously hanging across a footpath where children walk every day on their way to school, the same resident witnessed the dangerous trees cut back. If YOU notice something that could be dangerous, let me know. #YourCommunity


There are many roads in Tonyrefail that need attention, but as with other things, I can’t get the council to do everything. It was therefore very pleasing to get a call saying that St. John’s Road will be re-surfaced in the next financial year. I will continue to raise concerns about other roads in need of attention such as Pretoria Road and Collwyn Street. #DeliveringBitByBit

St George’s Day Centre

The council want to close St George’s Day Centre, meaning that users will have to go to Gilfach, like the group that was forced to leave Tonyrefail Community Centre and go to Gilfach. Everything is being taken away from Tonyrefail. #GiveSomethingBack
