ViewpointsAnswers are still needed.

As one of the Plaid Cymru councillors who voted against Barry's White Farm and has been attacked in Viewpoints, it's proper for me to explain the reasons why the vote was lost.

The public enquiry was there to decide if the 20-year rule of public use had been satisfied and could allow the area to become a village green.

The independent barrister said the evidence was not there. Council agreed and no amount of wishful thinking on behalf of town Councillor Keith Lewis will change that.

I asked the barrister to confirm that Coun Keith Lewis' refusal to give oral evidence had been in his words 'unhelpful,' this he confirmed.

Perhaps the councillor will tell us all why he started something he couldn't finish?

Councillor Nicholas Hodges
