I welcome the announce that the Council plan to build 46 new council houses in Caerphilly to help the 4.300 people who are waiting for a property. I have to ask why only 46 new houses? When the council has land at Pontllanfraith ( former office ) as well as former school sites at Bedwelty , Oakdale and Pontllanfraith. If the council really want to reduce the waiting list why not use these sites to build council houses, I fear this announcement is window dressing. To make a real and meaningful difference I ask that Council priorities council land for council housing.
