    Burberry site sale

    Along with many other people in the Rhondda I have been aware of the sale of the Burberry site for some time, though yesterday was the first occasion on which the developers spoke publicly about it.

    I hope that the investment by the new developers will be a success in attracting new small and medium enterprises onto the site. Their investment is a vote of confidence in the Upper Rhondda Fawr. I spoke in June to the Managing Director of one company hoping to locate there. It is a successful local construction company.

    There were very positive statements by the developers in the Western Mail today. The BBC also covered the story, though the tone of the interviewer on Good Evening Wales yesterday reflected the normal negativity of BBC Wales - I am coming to think that their slogan really should be 'we find the cloud in every silver lining.'
