Following the recent media reports concerning the notice served on residents at 81-96 Cynffig Road, Ystalyfera. I have been in contact with Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council to seek assurances and offer support and it has been advised that there is a risk to life and property containing hazards relating to structural collapse and the sewerage system serving some of the houses has been deemed inadequate. This decision is based on continuous monitoring of the area.
This is understandably a distressing time for all effected and I would urge residents to heed advice and seek support where needed.
Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council have been asking residents to get in touch by phone on 01639 685615 or text 07713891358 to discuss the accommodation options available.
Residents can also call the Housing Options team on 01639 685217 and Environmental Health on 01639 685678 to discuss anything relating to the land slippage and the ongoing support which will be made available.
I will continue to work with the council and other agencies to do all I can to support residents affected by this.
