Residents Terry Morgan of Tycroes Rd and Gwyn Evans of Parc Gwernen, with Nia Griffith MP, Keith Davies AM and Cllr Calum Higgins

Nia Griffith MP is taking up concerns of residents who have highlighted the need for a pavement along Tycroes Road, Tycroes. She has written to the County Council’s planning department to ask councillors on the planning committee to use their powers to obtain funding for the pavement from the property development company as a condition of being given planning permission to extend the Parc Gwernen estate.

Nia Griffith MP explained,

“This stretch of road is on the only route from the Fforestfach and Parc Gwernen housing estate to the school and village centre. It is not safe for pedestrians, and the County’s Highways department has no funding available at present to provide a pavement. New and existing residents would undoubtedly benefit from a pavement which would enable them to walk up to the school and shops. Local resident Mr Terry Morgan has worked hard to bring this problem to the attention of elected representatives, and I very much hope that Councillors on the planning committee will be able to impose a planning condition on the developers to provide funding for a pavement.”
