The Monmouthshire Branch holds formal committee meetings 5-6 times a year. Our active Planning sub-group continuously monitors planning applications with particular reference to our area.
We support Newport and Valleys Branch who are now leading CPRW’s objection to the proposal for a new length of M4 across the unique heritage and rich ecological area of the Gwent Level, affecting five SSSIs. They are working on this with the environmental campaign CALM, set up some years ago to save the Levels.
Please join us in telling the Minister and/or your AM that there are alternatives to this destructive and enormously expensive White Elephant, and that the much discussed South Wales Metro system would in any case relieve the existing M4.
