I have submitted a strong formal protest and complaint to the Local Authority Ombudsman concerning irregularities in planning permission on Mountain Road, and will write to the Council for a reconsideration of the planning permission. I have been informed as Armiger that the developer was told over the the telephone that permission would be given before the Committee actually considered the proposal. The developer was told not to take any notice of objections. My strong objection, published in the “South Wales Evening Post” was summarily overruled and in effect not even considered, even though I am an adversely affected neighbour and the only Armiger in Mawr and surrounding areas. This is an example of what I call “forced development”. It ultimately forces young people to emigrate out of Mawr, to be replaced by elderly monoglot incomers. Land and house prices are wildly inflated, a bubble economy. I suggest a strike of frontigers along Mountain Road, indefinite refusal to maintain the road. Forced development is vehemently opposed by the great majority in Mawr. It has completely ruined the language and culture and has reduced the quality of life by catalyzing major traffic problems. A complaint has been made to me as Armiger that the development on Mountain Road is taking place on land that was sold twice over, it had already been paid for. I demand a Parliamentary Enquiry into this. The County Councillor for Mawr has subsequently resigned from the Planning Committee, and I am reliably informed that he will either resign as County Councillor or not stand for re election. After he is gone it may at last be possible to put down double yellow lines for example, and impose control over planning permission , to re establish government in Mawr after years of paralysis.
