The decision by Plaid Cymru and Independent controlled Carmarthenshire County Council to abandon longstanding plans to build a new school for Ysgol Heol Goffa is a betrayal of the young people of Llanelli and a slap in the face for pupils, parents, staff and future generations of children from across the County.

Ysgol Heol Goffa is a school where dedicated staff provide an amazing education for children with very complex needs.  A brand new, state of the art replacement should be a top priority for everyone concerned so that pupils can have the best start in the life that they possibly can. To see it cynically ditched by the Council at this late stage will leave people rightly feeling shocked and deeply disappointed.

I am vigorously opposed to this decision.  The current Council leadership really need to think again on this proposal which would see some of our County’s most vulnerable young people being left behind.
