South Sebastopol Development 20 March 2016

South Sebastopol Development 20 March 2016
What we have been dreading for several years in Cwmbran; a new "rape of the fair country". Looking from the A4051 at Pontrhydyrun over doomed fields. The whitewashed Tir Brychiad Farm in the centre of shot.

This area, from South Sebastopol to Pontnewydd, is due to be carpeted with over 2000 homes and shops known as the "South Sebastopol Development" (or as I prefer to call it, "Cwmbran New Town 2"). Despite a fierce campaign which at one time forced the council to drop the plan, the development will now go ahead, confirming the power of money over local wishes. As a child, I would walk around here with my father who used to say "see this, they'll never build on it, it's green belt". He will be turning in his urn.
