NPT Council: Residents' welfare 'a key priority'

Neath Port Talbot Council says it is continuing to work with local residents and businesses to help the people affected by a landslide on Saturday 22 December. 22 people in 13 properties were advised to evacuate.

Specialist consultants will carry out a survey on the ground early in the New Year.

The bad weather is hampering survey work. Currently the ground is unstable so we have to ensure that the area is safe before engineers can enter. The welfare of residents and our staff remains a key priority.

– John Flower, Director of Environment at Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council
