MONMOUTH Assembly Member Nick Ramsay has pledged to continue to support Mitchel Troy residents in their efforts to halt the building of affordable housing on land near their homes.
Following a meeting with local residents last month, Mr Ramsay wrote to Monmouthshire County Council’s Highways Department expressing concern about the narrow access to the proposed site, which local residents say is used as a ‘rat run’ from Llanishen. He also contacted the Council’s Planning Department to highlight concerns about the slope to the site, which residents claim can become waterlogged.
Speaking recently, Mr Ramsay said:
“After talking to local residents it was very clear to me how unhappy they were with this proposal, and having visited the site, I share their view that there an a number of issues relating to the suitability of this particular site.
“I hope these concerns and comments will be considered very carefully before any final decision is made to build houses on this site.”
