P-05-1077 Stop the voting boundary change to Ystrad Mynach south


This petition was submitted by Philip Morris having collected 912 signatures online and 443 signatures on paper, a total of 1,355 signatures.


Text of Petition:                     

The Local Democracy and Boundary Commission for Wales have extremely advanced proposals, now with the Welsh Government, which move Forge Mill estate and Coopers Court into Llanbradach community council. The residents of this entire area were not informed, although their local community councillors were fully aware. We have had no consultation, only just finding out by accident that these proposals exist.


Additional Information:

These proposals divide us from our community, taking our vote away from the community we actively participate in and into a community that we are not part of. This petition is to let you, our representatives at the Senedd, know of our strong opposition to the proposed changes to the voting boundary in the south of Ystrad Mynach. We demand that we aren't divided from our community and trust that you will take the appropriate action to remove us from the proposal.
