Telecommunication mast

Wayne David, Labour Member of Parliament for Caerphilly, has welcomed the decision not to place telecommunications masts in a residential area of Bargoed. 

A petition was organised by local people, and with the backing of their local MP, opposing the plans, the proposals for the telecommunications masts have been withdrawn.

Arqiva and CITL wanted to erect antennas at the telephone exchange in Bargoed. Local residents did not agree with this and organised a petition with the assistance of their County Councillors, Tudor Davies, David Carter and Dianne Price and Bargoed Town Council Labour Councillors.  The companies have now announced that they have dropped their plans and will not be applying for planning permission.

In the response to the news, Wayne David said, "I am delighted about this news.  This is a victory for local people.  Legitimate concerns were expressed and I am pleased that those concerns were listened to and acted upon".

Keith Reynolds

Wayne David, Labour MP for Caerphilly, has responded to the sad news that Cllr Keith Reynolds has passed away.

Paying tribute to Keith, Wayne David said “"Like so many people, I am extremely sad that Keith has passed away. He was a wonderful man who cared deeply about the community he served. He led Caerphilly County Borough Council with honesty and determination and helped to establish a fine record of delivery by the Council.

“On a personal level, Keith was a good friend. We often 'put the world to rights' over a quiet pint and I was always impressed with Keith's political knowledge and common sense, as well as his unwavering commitment to the Labour Party and social justice. Caerphilly Borough Council, the Labour Party and the village of Aberbargoed will miss him greatly".
