IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT YOU COME TO WELSHPOOL LIVESTOCK MARKET FOR THE DEBATE ON WEDNESDAY 29TH JUNE.
The Council is setting up a wide screen at the market so that we can see and hear the debate. We must support this extraordinary move by the council who want us to see democracy in action. If we do not turn out in great numbers then there is a very real danger that they will not vote for TAN8 to be revised. We went in the thousands and cheered Glyn Davies and followed him to Cardiff. It is equally important that we now follow this through and let Powys County Council know exactly how we feel.
Calls to review TAN8 were defeated in a Welsh Assembly vote on Wednesday but Russell George has said “This is by no means the end of the fight. If Powys County Council asks for a review of TAN8 that will add pressure, as will the handing in of the largest ever petition to the Welsh Government on Tuesday"
Come to the Livestock Market and add your voice to those calling on Powys County Council to vote for a review. The meeting will begin at 12.30 p.m. with a review of what has been done, what is being done now, and what has to be done to win this fight. We want the councillors to see the crowds before they go into the market and begin the debate, which will open at 2.00 p.m. and will be witnessed by all there on the big screen.
The Welsh Assembly Government has made it very clear that they think, in their own words, that TAN8 is still 'fit for purpose'. It is not. Let us back Powys County Council and let them know exactly how we feel.
