Sweet Victory

Many congratulations to Sue Jones-Hughes, Heledd Bradley, and the residents of Maes y deri and their friends on their victory to have the right to register the strip of land known as 'Patshyn Plant' as 'public land owned by the community' following a public hearing in October 2013. Tai Ceredigion had been anxious that permission be granted for them to develop the land for housing. However, the campaigners gathered compelling evidence to convince the Chair of the hearing, Barrister Emyr Gweirydd Jones, that the land in question had been in regular use by the community for leisure pursuits for twenty years.
