Residents of Ystalyfera in the Swansea Valley are meeting with the council this evening amid concerns that the area could suffer another landslide.
The village was hit just over a year ago when the ground gave way above the Panteg area.
A meeting will begin at six o'clock at the village's Panteg Chapel to discuss the fact that the area is now classed as being at high risk of a similar occurrence.
Residents of a village in the Swansea Valley hit by landslides will attend a public meeting this evening over fears they could be hit again. Ystalyfera was hit at the end of 2012 and people were evacuated from their homes.
A stability report commissioned by Neath Port Talbot County Council suggests the area remains at risk and properties in the villages of Pant Teg and Godre'r Graig are now in a high risk category landslide area.
Many residents fear their properties are now worthless if they are unable to sell them.
Residents are now concerned over coal mining plans for the area and fear if given the go ahead it could cause a major landslide in view of the volatile conditions. Residents say they fear another tragedy like Aberfan.
The death of a 26-year-old man, whose body was discovered in the river near Gurnos Road in Ystalyfera yesterday, is not being treated as suspicious, police have said.
South Wales Police says investigations are continuing.
Emergency services were called to the area shortly after 3.45pm. The man's next of kin and HM Coroner have been informed.
An investigation is underway after a body was recovered from the river near Gurnos Road in Ystalyfera, in the upper Swansea Valley. Emergency services were called to the area shortly after 3.45pm today. The body has been taken to Morriston Hospital.
Natural Resources Wales says work being carried out is not only protecting people in the Upper Swansea Valley from flooding.
But it will also help to provide the conditions for salmon to breed.
About 500 tons of stones and gravel – called shoal – are being removed from the river bed where the Tawe meets the Twrch.
It'll let the rivers to flow more freely and reduce the risk of flooding to 268 homes and 3 businesses in nearby Ystalyfera.
Up to 35 lorry loads of the shoal will be washed and graded to determine their suitability as an environment for salmon to spawn.
Up to 40 per cent of the stones taken from the Tawe and the Twrch will be “recycled” in other locations as spawning gravel.
Campaigners in the Swansea Valley have been protesting against a planning application for coal mining in the area.
The company behind the plan says it would create jobs. But the application is in the Ystalyfera area where a landslip forced homes to be evacuated just before Christmas. David Wood reports.
Workers have started removing thousands of tonnes of soil left by a landslip in the Swansea Valley.
It happened last December at Ystalyfera following weeks of heavy rainfall.
Families were told to leave their homes after mud and rocks came cascading into their gardens.
Now Neath Port Talbot Council has begun attempts to get the land back to the way it was, as Hannah Thomas reports.
Neath Port Talbot Council have now cleared the site of a landslide in Ystalyfera and have started to work to restore the site to how it was before.
A spokesperson for the council said that so far this week they have spent time preparing the site, pulling out tree trunks and clearing the debris.
The landslide in the Swansea Valley happened in December and resulted in 13 families being forced to leave their homes.
A clean-up operation begins in earnest today after a landslide in the Swansea Valley, which resulted in 13 families being forced to leave their homes.
Weeks of bad weather have hampered the clean-up, as well as causing further problems at the already unstable site.
Neath Port Talbot Council has already carried out safety work at Ystalyfera, but has been given the go-ahead by specialist engineers to start clearing the site properly.
The landslide happened just three days before Christmas, with many residents returning to their homes soon afterwards as they didn't wish to spend Christmas elsewhere.
