Employment in Nant Llesg

Statement by Miller Argent

Issued Tuesday 4 August 2015

“The Nant Llesg scheme will create hundreds of well paid jobs and contribute millions of pounds in benefits to the Rhymney Valley that desperately needs them. We have written to the planning committee of Caerphilly CBC pointing out all these benefits. They are familiar with the planning process, and  should know that an appeal will cost both parties substantial amounts of money. Given, after a very detailed examination, that the officers of the council have previously recommended that the Nant Llesg scheme be granted planning permission,  it is our duty to point out the implications of any appeal to the members of the planning committee and to the risk of the potential award of costs as acknowledged by the council’s officers themselves.”
