Describe three achievements that you were instrumental in implementing and that benefited the community.
New Llanishen Library and Community Hub
Secured over £500,000 for a new council library and community hub on the ground floor of Llanishen Police Station, including a new children’s area and computer room. Work starts in Summer 2017.
Llanishen Reservoir campaign
Campaigned to save Llanishen reservoir from a major US multinational which fought for years to build 300+ houses on the site. Local Labour Councillors are now actively working with new reservoir owners Welsh Water to bring community access and sailing facilities back to this important local beauty spot.
Investing in our parks and open spaces
Worked with our local Assembly Member Julie Morgan to get stronger ‘Green Wedge’ protection against future housing development on Caerphilly Mountain and helped secure the Court Field’s future in Llanishen with a new lease. Funding has also been agreed to improve several other local parks, including Parc Cefn Onn, Thornhill Playing Fields and Llanishen Park.
