I am concerned that the topsoil is to be removed from the site on two basis:
1) The topsoil could be used on site to landscape the bordering land and plant trees which the island in general is short of
2) The transporting of such a large quantity of soil would involve damage to already poorly maintained minor roads. It would also involve unwanted disturbance in the village of Talwrn. The information you give implies that selling the topsoil is to offset costs . That is not sufficient reason to disregard the implication for villagers.
I would also like to know if an assessment has been made of the potential risks for flooding on the road from Talwrn to Ceint .
Are there any plans to repair and improve the local roads which are in a poor state at present.
