To receive the following Questions from:

Councillor Eugene Caparros to the Cabinet Member – Climate Change and the Environment


Green spaces and places for nature are increasingly important for residents in my ward and across the whole of Bridgend. BCBC has done some fantastic work in promoting and improving access to nature and I commend recent work by BCBC in engaging with Brackla community council on continuing such work in our area.


However, I am aware that a large number of trees have been cut down in Brackla due to Ash die back or other safety concerns which residents (particularly around Honeysuckle Way) have found concerning.  Please can you advise where residents can access updates on future tree maintenance works and advise on BCBC’s ambitions for funding tree planting and green space improvements in the borough?


Councillor Ian Williams to the Cabinet Member - Climate Change and the Environment


Could the Cabinet Member For Climate Change And The Environment please outline what measures this authority has taken to lobby DCWW to mitigate further discharges from the Sewage Treatment Works at Merthyr Mawr which will inevitably increase with the additional 2000 houses and related infrastructure at Island Farm, Craig Y Parcau and the Circus Field at Laleston featuring in the LDP especially when there are already issues with the water quality at Newton Beach and other beaches nearby due to storm water and sewage discharge?


I have previously sent through to you data obtained from DCWW through an EIR to enable you to formulate your response
