GUIDE TO CORRUPTION - CORRUPT COUNCIL EMPLOYEES
According to the NPTC Corporate Plan, the purpose of the Neath Port Talbot Council is "to serve and represent the interests of its citizens and communities" and if you live in Neath Port Talbot you are most likely paying council tax to ensure that the council has the funds to carry out this obligation.
I live in Glynneath, a small town on the edge of Neath Port Talbot and I am a council tax paying resident of the county borough. Over the last 10 months (Jan 2021) I have been investigating the council's planning system in relation to a housing development that borders my property. What I have found is that corruption is widespread amongst council employees and the elected council officials of the county borough are deliberately supporting this corruption.
The actions of these corrupt employees and officials have placed my family and the families of properties bordering the development at risk of death from carcinogens and other contamination that has been hidden in the development by the previous owners of the site.
This is an unacceptable practice that must be addressed now because it is highly unlikely that this is an isolated incident and more probable that corruption is widespread in the county borough. I have built this website to help the people of Neath Port Talbot identify corrupt employees and officials of the county borough and have provided a guide on how to identify their corrupt actions.
This page does not tread on eggshells, the protection of our families is of paramount importance to each and every one of us in the neighbourhood so when I say someone is corrupt. I mean that I believe someone is corrupt and I am saying this publicly so if I say that someone is corrupt and they believe they are not and that I am slandering them or my statements are libellous then I am happy to go to court to prove that what I say is correct. So that we are clear on what I mean when I say that someone is corrupt I have defined the meanings that are defined by a commonly accepted defining tool, a dictionary.
We define the words corrupt and corruption and other associated words in relation to the council employees and elected officials as follows:
ACCOUNTABLE: subject to the obligation to report, explain, or justify something; responsible; answerable or other definition of corrupt as defined by www.dictionary.com ON 24/1/2021 - CLICK HERE for a full list of definitions.
COALITION: The joining together of different political parties or groups for a particular purpose.or other definition of corrupt as defined by www.dictionary.com & https://dictionary.cambridge.org/ on 24/1/2021 - CLICK HERE for a full list of definitions.
PURPOSE OF THIS PAGE
The purpose of this page is to fight all types of corruption within the Neath Port Talbot Council and to replace identified corruption with systems of integrity that provide positive outcomes for the people of Neath Port Talbot.
It is my opinion that my case is not an isolated one and so I have built this study website to help other citizens of Neath Port Talbot to identify council corruption relating to their personal circumstances.
This study has evolved out of the East Glynneath - Residents Against Contamination group who found that they have been powerless to prevent an intrusive housing development on their doorstep despite a long history of council malpractice and negligence that has showed a complete disregard for the health and lives of the residents surrounding the development. Rather than addressing the concerns of the residents of East Glynneath, council employees and elected councillors have attempted to cover up this malpractice and negligence or refused to investigate our concerns.
We have used the study of this still ongoing case its related corrupt actions to form the basis of beginning of a study into corruption within the Neath Port Talbot Council.

TYPES OF CORRUPTION
We believe that government corruption can be split into the following generic categories:
|SYSTEM CORRUPTION||Where an official deliberately fails to follow local or national government rules.|
|MORAL CORRUPTION||Where an official deliberately fails to follow a government's moral values, usually defined by an organisation as 'purpose' and 'values' and a staff 'code of conduct'.|
|PHYSICAL CORRUPTION||Where an official deliberately
fabricates information, uses methods of deception or makes other
corrupt actions while
following government rules.

|CRIMINAL CORRUPTION||Where an official deliberately undertakes a criminal action in their position as a government official.|
|CORRUPTION COALITION||Where a group of councillors, staff,
volunteers etc form an
alliance to support corruption within the council.

|SYSTEM PURPOSE CORRUPTION||Where a regulation or protocol is included in a system that is contrary to the system's purpose.|
Corrupt actions may encompass two or more types of the above corruption.
We'd be happy to receive suggestions/additions or comments relating to the above generic categories.
HOW TO IDENTIFY CORRUPTION
|RELEVANT QUESTIONS & INFORMATION REQUESTS||If you ask a council official a
question or request information and they avoid the question or
refuse to give you an answer then this is a key indicator of
corruption. Democratic Audit, an independent research unit looking
into UK government democracy states that:
"For citizens to get involved in governing themselves and participating in politics, they must be able to find out easily what government agencies and other public bodies are doing."
If the council are stopping you from receiving information. This is a purposeful action, and this purpose is most likely to avoid accountability for corruption.

To Fight Corruption, We Must Embrace Transparency
