Impact of flooding on Merthyr Tydfil

Along with Gerald Jones MP and the Leader of Merthyr Tydfil CBC we have written jointly to the UK Prime Minister outlining the initial costs of the impact of recent storms on Merthyr Tydfil. You can read the letter here:

Final Merthyr flooding 6 March 2020_

The letter sets out the type of impacts that we have experienced across the Borough and an initial assessment of the costs now faced.

My thanks to both councils in the constituency for their support in establishing an initial assessment on the impact and cost of the adverse weather effects.

It is clear that it will take some time for us to respond and to overcome these challenges and we await the UK Chancellor’s Budget to see if the UK Government helps in the response to these recent serious incidents alongside the support already offered by the Welsh Government to residents and businesses.
