Cymuned suspends protests.

COMMUNITIES group Cymuned is to suspend its campaign of picketing Beresford Adams estate agents in North Wales, the movement has announced. The decision follows a meeting between Cymuned and Beresford Adams in Bangor on Wednesday evening, in which Beresford Adams was presented with a Code of Conduct for Welsh estate agents by Cymuned. The Code commits estate agents not to deliberately pitch property to buyers from outside Wales, and to advertise property locally only for the first three months in which property comes on the market.

The Chairman of the Llyn branch of Cymuned, Rhys Evans, said, ``Beresford Adams have promised to study the document, and come back to us with their response.

``In the meeting on Wednesday they made a number of concessions, but asked for time to take legal advice, and consider the way for-ward. ``It is not yet clear whether they will offer enough to enable us to call off our pickets on a permanent basis. ``However, as a sign of goodwill, Cymuned has decided to suspend our pickets of Beresford Adams estate agents in Pwllheli, Porthmadog, Caernarfon and Bangor while the company considers the matter.

``If there is no response, Cymuned will reactivate all the pickets in the Spring. ``In the meantime, Cymuned members who had been picketing Beresford Adams in Pwllheli will start to picket the Pwllheli branch of Dafydd Hardy. ``Hopefully we can repeat our success with Beresford Adams with another chain of North Wales estate agents. If we do not get a positive response from Dafydd Hardy with the pickets in Pwllheli, we will use the same tactic used with Beresford Adams, and spread the pickets to other towns in north Wales.''
