Say no to storing nuclear waste in Gower
It's been announced today by the UK Government and the Welsh Government that there is going to be a consultation with Swansea residents on the suggestion of how the residents and community of Swansea would feel if they were to be allowed to bury toxic nuclear waste in our area. There are two areas in Wales where consultations are planned with Swansea being one. We must say NO. Think of health implications and also of our children and the Swansea area. We are not the dumping ground for this!

Helping to preserve the village's rural identity
There are many ways in which this could be done but a good start would be to raise local awareness of the City and County of Swansea Local Development Plan and in particular the changes being proposed to the plan which will re designate Bishopston as an urban area and result in reduction of protected green wedge status for the fields in the heart of the village, making it easier for them to be developed for housing.

Zebra crossing on Bishopston road
There should be a zebra crossing on Bishopston road because when children or adult are walking somewhere it can become dangerous crossing the road as people accelerate when they drive round the corner.

Connecting Rural Communities
The Swansea Rural Community Voice Project ran for two years and in many ways achieved positive outcomes that went beyond the scope of the project. The potential for people to come together around common goals and themes such as the environment, transport and food and growing was realised within individual communities.

We would like to begin a new project, building on this success, with the aim of connecting people within communities along these themes and further connecting these groups to share ideas and best practice across the eight rural wards of Swansea, increasing the resilience and sustainability within all rural communities.

We will be recruiting volunteer Community Champions who will help raise awareness of the project within these communities and approach local businesses and organisations to sponsor the community group. Through this sponsorship, our aim is to create self sustaining jobs for Community Champions and in turn ensure ongoing services for Community Voice.

The sponsorship package on offer will allow local businesses to advertise not only offers and services but also any positive impact they have had within their communities. This sponsorship will ensure the continued free use of the platform in communities, the generation of a quarterly Community Voice publication and will also pay for an employee to manage engagement and volunteers within these communities.

Please rate this idea to help us keep the conversation going and give a voice to everyone in rural Swansea.

If you need any more information, please call 0800 689 0290.

Thanks
