Restart of Liaison Group welcomed
Updated: Jan 30
We welcome the decision by Caerphilly Council cabinet to reconvene the long-standing liaison group that has not met since the start of the pandemic. The decision to postpone the group was not ours. It is important that we are able to meet with local residents and their elected councillors, officers from Public Health Wales, Natural Resources Wales, and Caerphilly planning and environmental health.
There has been a great deal of information and data presented at these meetings over the years, much of which is never forwarded to local people. We are very interested to see if the proposed Council webpage will help to get information from the liaison group out to the community and the wider public in the borough.

We have repeatedly invited local councillors and our neighbours to tour our facilities at Gelliargwellt Uchaf but those invitations have seldom been taken up, with some protesters and politicians having never visited the site. We look forward to welcoming them to Bryn Group so that they can find out about our accredited and state-of-the-art facilities and operations.
We are confident that, through closer engagement and by continuing to share the facts and data about the safety of processes and facilities at Gelliargwellt Uchaf, our neighbours will gain the reassurance they are seeking.
