Residents are invited to attend four public ‘drop-in’ events this August in the Council’s Summer Conversation – which is an opportunity to find out more about ongoing investment and future plans across a range of services.

The Summer Conversation is returning in August 2019 as the Council continues to engage with local residents over its spending. From areas of investment such as Leisure, 3G pitches and Play Areas to 21st Century Schools, Highways and Community Hubs – we want to hear from you.

It is an ideal opportunity for the Council to understand residents’ views, with Officers on hand to answer queries through face-to-face discussions. You can ‘drop-in’ and visit the Council’s Consultation team at the following locations:

  • Ynysangharad War Memorial Park, Pontypridd – Wednesday, August 14 (10am-2pm).
  • Mountain Ash Town Centre – Friday, August 16 (10am-2pm).
  • Sobell Leisure Centre, Aberdare – Wednesday, August 21 (4pm-8pm).
  • Morrisons Car Park, Porth – Friday, August 23 (10am-2pm).

At each event, residents can fill in a survey to tell the Council about the improvements they have seen within their community, and what they would like to see in the future. For residents unable to attend any of the four events, a short survey can be filled in on the Council’s website.

The Council’s Customer Care team will also be on hand to discuss the ever-growing online services available to residents.

Councillor Maureen Webber, Deputy Leader of Rhondda Cynon Taf Council and Cabinet Member for Council Business, said: “The Summer Conversation is an ideal opportunity for residents to tell the Council what they think about its ongoing investment, and the plans it has for the future – and what residents tell us is very important to inform future decision-making.

“The Summer Conversation is an excellent way for the Council to listen to residents in addition to the annual Budget Consultation – which takes place each winter to help inform the Council’s budget each March. Last year, we had our biggest-ever feedback to the Budget Consultation, with 4,000 responses through engagement events, a survey and a budget simulator.

“I’d urge residents to ‘drop-in’ on one of the 2019 Summer Consultation events, or fill in a survey online, in order to have their say on the Council’s significant investment across a number of services.”
