The Labour Party in Cwmbwrla has been working hard on behalf of residents in Manselton to sort out an ongoing knotweed problem.
Japanese knotweed has become the scourge of homeowners. It grows at a very fast rate and is near-impossible to get rid of. In the process it can wipe thousands off property prices.
But in Courtney Street in Manselton Labour are working proactively to help worried houseowners.
“This is a great example of how Cwmbwrla has been overlooked for years by the current LibDem Councillors, but thanks to Labour we are driven to making it a great place to live,” said Andrew Crowley, chairman of Cwmbwrla Ward Labour Team and Labour candidate for Cwmbwrla in next May’s Local elections.
“We have had complaints from residents in Courtney Street regarding knotweed being left to grow on land next to their properties close to the railway, making it literally impossible to sell their properties,” explained Andrew.
“Thanks has to go to Mike Hedges AM for his input. Now we have begun to get to the bottom of the problem and Network Rail are sending a team to spray the railway in the vicinity of Courtney Street.
“So hopefully this will be the beginning of the end of residents’ worries about this issue.
“But in this matter as with everything in the ward we in Labour intend to put the residents of the ward first.”
