Leader’s Column – March 2014

Cabinet met last week and unanimously approved the Capital Programme for the next three years. Over recent years, because of our approach to Capital Investment, residents have benefited from substantial investment in our Highways Infrastructure including £14m last year alone, a comprehensive Schools Modernisation Programme and Town Centre Improvements to mention but a few. Cabinet’s approval of the Capital Programme demonstrates our commitment to making ongoing significant investment in the infrastructure of Rhondda Cynon Taf despite a reduction in resources.
