A Message to Caerphilly County Borough Council

I believe that Caerphilly Council has a duty of care to the Communities that elected them, I really hope that they take notice of the Campaign Groups, United Valleys Action Group and Green Valleys Alliance who are providing information in regard to the effects opencast mining has on Health, Jobs, Environment, Wildlife, and future Tourism.

All their information has been thoroughly researched, also WHO, The World Health Organisation has done studies on the effects of Cancer causing dioxins from Diesel fumes, the diggers on site at Ffos-y-Fran and Nant Llesg use diesel and the fumes know no boundaries.

Help us to put a stop to opencast mining forever…

Thanks to Business man Mitchell Field for the following You Tube Video……

Proposals for an open cast mine at Nant Llesg, Rhymney will soon be submitted by Scottish developer Miller Argent. This will be a huge surface mine that would remain in operation for 17 years and excavate around 6m tonnes of coal from an area of around 3,000 acres – its eastern edge being just 500m from the town of Rhymney.

Green Valleys Alliance is a consortium of local businesses with backing from the local community that launched its opposition to the proposals in July. The Alliance is concerned that the mine will have a negative impact on local jobs and investment in the area, be detrimental to the environment and people’s quality of life and could make the local population vulnerable to long term health risks.

Local businessman Mitchell Field, who employs 140 people at Rhymney-based cosmetics business Richards & Appleby Ltd and features in the video, said:

“We have decided to release this video to highlight the negative impact that these proposals will have on the local area and show people exactly why our group is opposed to the creation of this mine.”

“The video shows the areas that will be affected – lush green fields and farm land that will be completely destroyed – and highlights our concerns about the real risk of job losses and economic decline in the area if this mine goes ahead.”
