Local representatives in Swansea have met to discuss the plans for the proposed Abergelli power plant in Felindre.
Gower MP Tonia Antoniazzi has teamed up with the County Councillors Brigitte Rowlands and Gareth Sullivan to raise awareness of the consultation period for the Power station.
Councillor Rowlands of Mawr and Councillor Sullivan of Llangyfelach met with the Gower MP at Llangyfelach Stores to discuss how local communities can be motivated to express their views effectively before the end of the consultation period.
All three representatives are encouraging residents to contact them by email or post with their views, which will then be fed in directly to the consultation process.
Houses within approximately 2 miles are expected to receive a leaflet from Abergelli Power about the project after the 16th January but Tonia, Gareth and Brigitte will also be distributing leaflets with information for residents.
Tonia Antoniazzi said “I held a public meeting in Llangyfelach in September last year because I felt it was important that residents had an opportunity to have their say on the potential plans for a prison in Felindre.”
“Residents views must be listened to before a decision is made so I’m asking residents in Gower to contact me via email at Tonia.Antoniazzi.firstname.lastname@example.org with their contributions.”
“We must work together to bring positive, sustainable investment to Gower and Swansea.”
Exhibitions about the Abergelli project will be held in Llangyfelach Church Hall on Wednesday 7th February between 4 pm and 7 pm, Forge Fach Resource Centre on Thursday 8th between 3.30 pm and 6.30 pm, Tircoed Village Hall on Friday 9th February between 5 pm and 8 pm, and Felindre Welfare Hall on Saturday between 10 am and 1 pm.
