    I have been promised by the Council that consultation will take place with the public about the uses of the hostel at Glyncornel.

    I have also been promised that there will be sufficient time set aside for Rhondda schools to use Glyncornel’s facilities.

    The promises are contained in a letter from RCT Council Cabinet Member Councillor Graham Thomas.

    The Council has also told me that the public will continue to have access to Glyncornel and that the Glyncornel Estate will continue to be managed and maintained by the Council’s Countryside Section.

    Following the public meeting last month I raised a number of questions with the Council.

    I am glad that the Council has confirmed that there will be public consultation on the use by the Children’s Services department of the hostel in Glyncornel, not least because there have been a number of wild rumours circulating.

    Plans are in place to allow local schools to continue to use the facilities.

    Glyncornel is not being closed. Nor is Glyncornel being closed to public use, as some have claimed. The public will still be able to use the facility.
