GLYNNEATH CONTAMINATION CORPORATE MANSLAUGHTER
NEATH PORT TALBOT COUNCIL 1990 ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION ACT BREACH
A COVER UP OF PLANNING DEPARTMENT MALPRACTICE THAT HAS ALMOST CERTAINLY CAUSED THE POTENTIAL UNLAWFUL KILLING OF GLYNNEATH RESIDENTS
IMPORTANT NOTICE - Please note that this page is undergoing construction and it is presently incomplete. However if a person or organisation appear on this page, then they have been identified as belonging to this particular corruption coalition, and as such we are saying that by their inclusion on this page that they have undertaken corrupt actions and form part of a group of public officials and private businesses who in this instance have undertaken purposeful corrupt actions to support other members of this group. The result of the combined actions of this group have almost certainly caused the death of Glynneath residents through untreated toxic waste illegally dumped at the Heol y Glyn Development site in Glynneath. This contamination has recently been exposed by Enzo Homes and is potentially causing more harm while recent plans approved by the Neath-Port Talbot Council allow for an area with reported toxic waste tipping to be moved closer to residents properties or removed from the site without the required testing.
GLYNNEATH TOWN COUNCIL
How the 'Corruption Coalition' are committing 'Corporate Manslaughter.
The offence Corporate Manslaughter can be found on the UK Government's Crown Prosecution Service website.
The following are the 'elements' of the offence:
This means that all parts of the offence need to be satisfied for the offence to be proven.
1. the defendant is a qualifying organisation;
2. the organisation owed a relevant duty of care to the deceased;
The image to the left is the front cover of the on-line version of the NPTC Corporate Plan 2019-2022 which provides the following purpose and vision for the council's existence which indicates a 'duty of care':
"Our Purpose: Neath Port Talbot Council exists to serve and represent the interests of its citizens and communities. We strive to improve the economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being of all of our people.
3. there was a gross breach of that duty by the organisation;
If we refer to the following document submitted to NPTC on 7 September 2021 that shows that in 2008 there was a 'gross breach of duty in the failure to observe the 1990 Environmental Protection Act.
Youtube video: https://youtu.be/KcivmWSeK0Q
4. the way in which its activities were managed or organised by its senior
management was a substantial element in the breach;
This is an example of current senior management corruption at NPTC. NPTC refuse to provide any historical information relating to the development.
5. the gross breach of the organisation’s duty caused or contributed to the death.
The following report shows how residents living next to the site are more likely to die from a rare neurodegenerative disorder. 20% of properties with a long term occupancy bordering the site have had a family member die of a neurodegenerative disorder in the last 5 years.
This document shows how the Neath-Port Talbot Council Planning Department worked together with the Cuddy Group to avoid the remediation of contamination at the Heol y Glyn Development following a chemical test that identified the land as contaminated in 2008.
Cuddy Group Ltd continued to tip toxic waste at the site and in 2020 a resident's group determined that 20% of properties in Brynhyfryd, Glynneath that have a physical border with the Heol y Glyn site have suffered the death of a family member from a rare neurodegenerative disorder within the last 5 years. This is approximately 112 times the national average for such occurrences.
Two of those deaths can be linked through a scientific report to a similar contamination occurrence in the French town of Wattrelos.
The properties in which these residents lived are 50 metres apart and the onset of symptoms happened within a space of 2 years around the time the Cuddy Group were constantly tipping and moving soil around the site. The UK national figures for such an occurrence happening are 2 cases in the whole of Glynneath within a period of 40 years. The site was tested and found to be contaminated in close proximity to these houses in 2008 and again in 2020. It has never been remediated (cleaned up). Document 1 shows the probable cause of these deaths while Document 2 below shows the effect.
Document 2 - CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE EGRAC PSP REPORT
The conclusion of the PSP Cluster report is that:
“Residents of Brynhyfryd are dying from the rare neurological disorder Progressive Supranuclear Palsy. These deaths are almost certainly due to specified and other potential unspecified contamination tipped at the Heol y Glyn landfill site. Public officers who have covered up this contamination are responsible for the unlawful killing of these residents.”
These published documents have been submitted to Natural Resources Wales, Neath Port Talbot Council and Glynneath Town Council, they show the potential cause and effect of the deaths of Glynneath residents from toxic waste at the Heol y Glyn development. All three organisations refuse to undertake due diligence into the findings of the documents, they refuse provide evidence that contradicts the findings and they refuse to openly discuss the documents or acknowledge that the documents exist.
What is a Corruption Coalition?
CORRUPTION COALITION - Where a person or group form an alliance to support corruption.
This particular corruption coalition centres on the Heol y Glyn housing development in Glynneath, south Wales and involves two councils, Neath Port Talbot, Glynneath Town Council and a government regulatory body, Natural Resources Wales.
It revolves around a planning applications (NPTC - P2020/0195 and P2020/0863).
The group are collectively committing the UK Government offence Corporate Manslaughter and the Social Murder of East Glynneath residents based upon their geographical location. The residents live in properties that surround a historic domestic and industrial landfill site that has been misrepresented on the Local Development Plan to enable unscrupulous developers to build houses on an unsuitable location.
Once planning notices were displayed, initial enquiries by the residents group to the planning department representative Steve Ball met with deceit and a refusal to provide information. NPT councillors subsequently refused to ask the planning department on behalf of the group who were left without answers to the question.
"What happened to the identified contamination in 2008"
Detailed research into the history of the development by a local residents group and supporting academics had identified that the land was identified as contaminated in 2008. The provision of information relating to the contamination was refused by the planning department and the residents group turned their enquiries to the Council Leader Rob Jones. At the first mention of a suggested breach of the 1990 Environmental Protection Act the council leader refused to answer the question, identified the enquiry as a complaint and passed it on to the monitoring officer and the head of planning who then blatantly fabricated information stating that the 1990 act did not apply during the planning process.
The head of planning then referred the group to the Ombudsman.
The group refused to complain and continued to pursue information from the council leader, planning department and local councillors, all of whom refused to supply it. A corruption coalition formed amongst the staff and elected officials of the Neath Port Talbot Council covering up a breach of the 1990 Environmental Protection Act.
The residents group further investigated the site history based upon the information available on local and national government websites, it then became evident that malpractice and negligence were common place in the council planning process for the development in question.
The investigation concluded that when the contamination was identified, the information was withdrawn from the planning process itself and the land was redefined as 'brownfield' by the developer. It was clear that the Neath Port Talbot Council had failed to follow their Contaminated Land Strategy which based itself on the 1990 EPA.
A clear and obvious breach of this act had been identified by the residents group.
What should have happened in 2008 is that the planning department should have passed on the information to the Contaminated Land Officer and conditions should have been written into development plan to remediate the land or it should have been tested further. This information was provided to the planning department during the planning process as part of a series of objections to the planning application.
The information should have then been presented to the planning committee on behalf of the residents by the planning department however, when the planning meeting agenda was published the residents group identified that it was missing.
A draft report was then commissioned by the residents from Rugby Relics Ltd for late submission to the planning committee for consideration at the meeting to include the missing information.
The report was posted by signed for delivery to arrive at the home addresses of the Planning Committee and Glynneath Councillors Simon Knoyle and Del Morgan prior to the planning meeting on 8 September 2020.
PLANNING DEPARTMENT MALPRACTICE
The source of the contamination is the Cuddy Group Ltd who have
tipped unregulated waste on the development site between
approximately 2003 and 2016. The root cause of the problem
however, we believe to be planning department negligence
in 2005 when they approved the original Cuddy plans prior to
identifying the suitability of the land for housing. The Cuddy
Group it would seem had no intention of building houses on the
site, the planning application was a cover for the importation
of thousands of tons of industrial waste. In 2008 the land was
identified as contaminated and to avoid the remediation process
which would have cost many thousands of pounds the Cuddy Group
and the Neath-Port Talbot Council Planning Department colluded
to hide the contamination by changing the nature of the
development from being a historically clean one to a brownfield
site, then back again on the Local Development Plan to a site
suitable for a housing development.
see Cuddy Tipping Habits Video for more information
COUNCIL OF DEATH DOCUMENT SUBMITTED TO NPTC PLANNING COMMITTEE AND GLYNNEATH COUNCILLORS ON 7/9/2020
The report title "Council of Death" refers to the
seriousness of our concerns. If the findings of the report were
not disproved then the Neath Port Talbot Council had placed the
lives of Glynneath residents at additional risk of death or
serious ill health for the last 12 years. (2008-2020).
This document provides evidence that the Neath Port Talbot Council has breached the Environmental
Protection Act 1990 and has thereby placed the lives of Glynneath residents at risk from 2008 to date by not
adhering to the council's responsibilities relating to contaminated land as defined in the 2005 Neath-Port
A subsequent report has identified that 20% of properties that have a physical border with the Heol y Glyn site in Glynneath have suffered a death of a family member from a rare neurodegenerative disorder within the last 5 years. Two of those deaths by Progressive Supranuclear Palsy can be linked through a scientific report to a similar contamination occurrence in the French town of Wattrelos.
The properties in which these residents lived are 50 metres apart and the onset of symptoms happened within a space of 2 years around the time the Cuddy Group were constantly tipping and moving soil around the site.
The UK national figures for such an occurrence, are that only 2 cases should occur in the whole of Glynneath within a period of 40 years.
of the time constraints in submitting the report it was decided
to submit it in draft format to the Neath Port Talbot Council
Planning Committee with the opportunity to provide counter
evidence prior to a final version being published.
This report has been commissioned by members of the East Glynneath – Residents Against Contamination
It has been prepared by Rugby Relics Ltd, 66 Brynhyfryd, Glynneath, Neath, SA11 5BA and this version is
in draft form prior to publication. This report is being submitted to the members of Neath-Port Talbot Council
for the verification of information and the opportunity to provide counter evidence to the information and
allegations made in this document. It should be noted that the ‘personal opinions’ of Neath-Port Talbot
The last section refers to the previous fabrication of information and deception used by council officials in relation to our enquiries to date.
|It is over 9 months since Neath Port Talbot Council have been in possession of this document and they have failed to acknowledge its existence by name or its contents. They have made no genuine attempt to disprove its conclusion. Neath Port Talbot Councillors have gone to great lengths to avoid discussing its contents. This includes potentially holding an illegal planning meeting prior to the official planning meeting on 8 September and the Council Leader Rob Jones issuing a "whitewash" statement with fabricated information.|
If we refer to the following submission by the Pollution
Officer in this meeting we will see that he confirms the report analysis that the land should have been tested further when he
"The site investigation in 2008 which was limited sampling, quite shallow sampling"
he goes on to state that the 2019 sampling was also inefficient and his recommendations were a complete testing of the site to fully 'categorize' it for human health issues.
The admission that the testing in 2008 was insufficient by the Neath Port Talbot Council Pollution Officer is clear evidence that the Neath Port Talbot Council broke the 1990 Environmental Protection Act in 2010 because even though the testing was insufficient it was detailed enough to identify the land as contaminated and a series of measures were suggested to clean up the land and prevent further harm to neighbouring residents. The land had already been defined as a risk to 'human health and so the council were duty bound by law to further investigate and identify whether of not it is a special site.
Further information about why the land should have been investigated in 2008 as a 'special site' can be found in the following video.
To summarise, the problem exists because what happened in the planning committee meeting of 8 September 2020 should have
happened in the planning committee meeting of June 2010. Of note
is that the potential culprit for hiding the contamination,
Russell Borthwick was a spectator at the meeting. This is the
only time we have come across Mr Borthwick in the recent
*** We have come across Mr Borthwick in the planning process for the Heol y Glyn development in the early stages, however it is possible that he is linked to the other planning permission being sought at the same meeting. Confirmation of the timing of his arrival at the meeting and the details of the other meeting need to be checked.
THE CORRUPTION COALITION
|CUDDY GROUP LTD|
|GERAINT JOHN PLANNING LTD|
|TERRA FIRMA (WALES)|
KEY CORRUPTION COALITION FIGURES
There are 6 key figures in this corruption coalition who are
still holding it together today. The former leader Rob Jones
having recently offered himself up to the ombudsman.
|STEVE BALL PLANNING DEPARTMENT||
The core figure in this corruption coalition is Steve
Ball who has continually used methods of deception to avoid
giving truthful answers to relevant questions relating to the
identified contamination in 2008 and then blocked any further
queries. He has worked closely with Simon Knoyle and Del Morgan
to force through this application despite other obvious
potential problems such as flooding. We see evidence of this at
during the planning meeting.
In this short segment during the September 2020 planning meeting we hear that Steve Ball, Del Morgan and Simon Knoyle have been working closely together. Both councillors had refused to communicate with our residents group since April 2020.
Fabrication & misrepresentation
CUDDY GROUP TIPPING HABITS & NATURAL RESOURCES WALES
This video is important in helping us to understand this corruption coalition, we see how Steve Ball has blatantly misrepresented the role of Natural Resources Wales in the planning process for the Heol y Glyn development. The Cuddy Group were tipping at the Heol y Glyn site from 2005 to 2016 while Natural Resources Wales was formed in 2013 and the Cuddy Group's first NRW licence dates from August 2014 by which time the majority of tipped material had been brought onto the site. The video also gives a general idea of how the planning department at NPTC have supported the intentions of Cuddy Group to tip on the land as opposed to building houses. The Cuddy Group's housing development arm Primrose Homes did not build a single property during their entire existence. It was just a front for their illegal tipping of industrial waste.
|SIMON KNOYLE GLYNNEATH COUNCILLOR||
As a Director of SAK Consulting, Simon has 24 years experience of working in the construction Industry.
Throughout the planning application we see him using his broad skill set with a large contact base within the Welsh construction industry, proven people skills and keen to assist in business growth wherever possible, bringing a large database of satisfied subcontractors, contractors and clients with
him to the application.
Source: SAK (Simon Anthony Knoyle) Consulting.
In an email dated 6 April 2020 Simon Knoyle stated that
"The only thing that I would say is, we are in a period of time where we do not know what will
Throughout the planning process Simon Knoyle's actions have been directed towards developing his construction consultancy business network. These actions include meeting the developer Enzo on site while the developer is breaking the planning conditions in front of him and hiding contamination from the people of Glynneath.
With planning application 2020/0195 there were 40 properties surrounding the site that objected to the development. The only resident living close to the site in support of the development was Councillor Del Morgan. This being the case Simon Knoyle was clearly working for his own personal interests and not those of the people he was elected to serve.
|DEL MORGAN GLYNNEATH COUNCILLOR||
Throughout the planning process Del Morgan can be seen
supporting a planning application that is clearly a potential
danger to the residents bordering the site. His property is set
away from the development. His support for the tunnelling of the
stream and his refusal to report Enzo when he was breaking the
conditions post planning approval led to the flooding of
properties in the street with contaminated water a few weeks
later. He has refused to engage in communication with residents
and is covering up the identified contamination in 2008 which he
was informed about in April 2020. He issued a statement together
with Simon Knoyle in October 2020 which is clearly a deliberate
attempt at discrediting the report submitted without providing
evidence in support of his claims. This is what he said
(together with Simon Knoyle) about our report.
"We would highlight one particular instance where it is claimed that a document sent to the local ward Members and the County Borough Council had not been given due consideration; however, we can confirm that council officers had indeed replied to its sender on two separate occasions with detailed responses to the concerns raised."
The detailed responses were fabrication and deception emails from Steve Ball that had no relevance to the questions asked.
|ROB JONES FORMER COUNCIL LEADER||
Council Leader - Councillor Rob Jones orchestrated a cover up operation that included Craig Morris, Craig Griffiths and Steve Ball and broke council rules in relation to the council complaints procedure while doing so.
At this point we are going to include two key communication events with the
Council Leader Rob Jones. It is an exchange of emails on the 19 & 20 April
They are significant because they include 5 members of the corruption coalition and the email identifies to the members of the coalition the breach in the 1990 EPA and Steve Ball corruption incidents.
.The Council Leader Rob Jones, Steve Ball, Simon Knoyle, Del Morgan and Haulwen Morgan.
The Council Leader replied that he would pass the information on to the planning department for inclusion in the planning process copying all identified key coalition figures in the process.
|CERI MORRIS HEAD OF PLANNING||
The Head of Planning can be seen to support Steve Ball's corrupt actions in his
'complaint resolution' referred by the Council Leader. His resolution includes
this blatant misrepresentation of government/council policy relating to the
Environmental Protection Act 1990 and contaminated land
"Turning specifically to the issue of land contamination at the site
and whether the Council has historically contravened the Environmental
Protection Act 1990, I would advise that this legislation no longer applies
when a site is going through the planning
If we refer to the council's Contaminated Land Strategy in place at the time we will see that land contamination should be dealt with early in the planning process............
and also if we refer to the UK Environmental Law Association's guidance on the 1990 EPA and contaminated land:
"Please note that the planning process does not override the contaminated land regime provided by Part IIA of the Environmental Protection Act 1990."
This is a deliberate act of misconduct by the Head of Planning.
Youtube video showing the process of this corrupt action - https://youtu.be/ZNR32GjgBqM
|SUZANNE PADDISON CHAIR OF PLANNING COMMITTEE||
Suzanne Paddison has been aware since 15 May 2020 of the potential breach of the 1990 EPA. During the planning committee meeting she disallowed our report for inclusion in the meeting because it was 'new information'. The only reason the report existed was because the information had previously been supplied to the planning department and not included in their summary.
Councillor Paddison potentially held an illegal planning meeting with Councillors Keogh, Woolcock and Craig Morris prior to the main meeting in September. (Source - conversation with Tammie Davies of legal services prior to planning committee meeting in which she said "I was up early this morning, this is my second meeting of the day") We are unable to find any record of an official council meeting earlier that day. This suggests that the meeting to which Councillor Paddison referred in her conversation with Tammie Davies prior to the Committee meeting was an unofficial one to discuss the document submitted to the Planning Committee containing the information omitted by the Planning Department.

CORRUPTION COALITION SUPPORT
|The following Neath Port Talbot Council employees and elected representatives have undertaken corrupt actions in support of the 6 key figures in the coalition.|
|CRAIG GRIFFITHS HEAD OF LEGAL SERVICES AND MONITORING OFFICER||Joined with Ceri Morris and the Council Leader to channel our initial request for information on identified contaminated land down the natioal government complaints process. It should be noted that he is the monitoring officer for NPTC and as such all 'whistle blowing' and reports of wrong doing, such as the breach of the 1990 EPA should go direct to him. We would suggest that he has provided the strategies used by Ceri Morris, the Council Leader and Nicola Pearce to avoid the council's responsibility for the breach of the 1990 EPA.|
|NICOLA PEARCE FORMER HEAD OF PLANNING||Worked with Craig Griffiths to support her colleague Steve Ball's fabrication and refusal to provide information. Refused to provide information in relation to the communication between Steve Ball and Ceri Morris that should have been readily available as 'Ombudsman evidence'.|
|The planning committee
as a group have made at least 2 collective corrupt actions and a
group of labour councillors led by the chair Suzanne Paddison
have undertaken individual corrupt actions with a view to
discrediting the EGRAC spokesperson Dai Richards.
Planning committee meeting 8 September 2020 - https://youtu.be/FVMEVOOfUAo
Collective Corruption Action 1: Members of the planning committee were provided a document containing evidence of a historical breach in the 1990 Environmental Protection Act and also of the contaminated land protocol. They were supplied this information for consideration at the planning committee meeting on 8 September 2020. As a group the ignored this document and also used bullying tactics to discredit the residents representative.
Collective Corruption Action 2: In October 2020 they were asked to provide due diligence in relation to the information provided for the meeting. They inappropriately referred this information to the planning department who were identified within the document as causing the breach of the 1990 act.

OPPORTUNITY OFFERED TO COUNCILLORS
|On the 25th October 2020 we emailed every member of the planning committee to request what due diligence they had undertaken in relation to the document provided.||
You were provided a document prior to the planning committee meeting on 8/9/2020 a document that explained the process of how the Neath-Port Talbot Council Planning Department and Committee failed to observe council protocol when they failed to investigate further contaminated land identified in 2008. The same document provided documentary evidence of this breach which suggested that a member/s of the planning department had committedn malpractice.
Please provide the following information or relevant answers to questions under the Freedom of Information Act and/or the purpose or the Neath-Port Talbot Council as defined in the Corporate Plan which is to serve and
represent the interests of its citizens and communities:
Our Purpose: Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council exists to serve and represent the interests of its citizens and communities. We strive to improve the economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being of all of our people.
Please provide a detailed log of the due diligence actions you have taken in respect of this information received? For example:
Did you manually check if the information contained in the document was factually correct within the planning department records?
|on the 2 November the Head of Planning Ceri Morris replied on their behalf stating||
You repeatedly complain that the Council has failed to address your queries
however, the Council has investigated your concerns and responded to you
accordingly, providing you with an avenue of appeal against every issue.
They also include serious and unsubstantiated allegations about the conduct
of officers and councillors, stating that the Planning Department has colluded with the
former site owners to hide contaminated land, which would constitute a breach of the
Environmental Protection Act 1990.
The Council takes its responsibilities with regards to ground contamination very seriously. The Council is satisfied that it has not at any point contravened its duties under this legislation.
|This is unusual because on the 4 May 2020 Mr Morris had previously stated in his investigation of Steve Ball's deception||
Turning specifically to the issue of land contamination at the site and whether the
Council has historically contravened the Environmental Protection Act 1990, I would
advise that this legislation no longer applies when a site is going through the planning
process; by definition therefore the Council has not at any point contravened its duties under this legislation, as it is not relevant once the planning process has commenced."
The Neath-Port Talbot Council's responsibilities at this point in time were contained in the Contaminated Land Strategy.
If we look at the Executive Summary of the Contaminated Land Strategy we will see that it immediately aligns itself with Part IIA of the 1990 Environmental Protection Act and then bases it's contaminated land processes on this Act.
|"One of the key objectives of the council's Contaminated Land Strategy (Key Objective 4:) is to ensure that during the redevelopment of new sites, land contamination issues are dealt with effectively and at an early stage of the planning process."|
|At no point does Mr Morris offer a fact or counter argument that disputes the information or conclusion of our draft report and if we look at his statement on the 4th May 2020 and compare it with that of the UK Environmental Law Association, we will see that it is a direct contradiction to UK Government law as generally accepted by the leading UK environment law charity.|
|"Contaminated land is also taken into account in planning applications for new developments. Planning permission may be refused if the development site poses serious harm that cannot be cleaned up. Even if there is minimal risk of contamination, the planning permission may still require the developer to do some clean up work before proceeding with construction work. Find out more here. Please note that the planning process does not override the contaminated land regime provided by Part IIA of the Environmental Protection Act 1990."|
GLYNNEATH TOWN COUNCIL
According to the Glynneath Town Council website the Neath Port
Talbot and Glynneath Town Council's are separate
Neath Port Talbot, which is a totally separate local authority operating on a larger and wider scale than local councils such as Glynneath Town Council.
|On the 19 April 2020 three Glynneath Town Councillors were copied to an email to NPT Council Leader Rob Jones which included evidence of the 2008 contamination supplied to NPTC planning department and the refusal of the planning officer Steve Ball to provide relevant information relating to this identified contamination. This being the case the Glynneath Town Councillors became aware of the corrupt activities of Steve Ball and of the un-remediated contamination. Two of the Councillors were Simon Knoyle and Del Morgan. A request was made of the third councillor Haulwen Morgan to print and place the email in the Glynneath Town Council records. Therefore, Glynneath Town Council had been made aware of a potential breach of the 1990 Environmental Protection Act three months in advance of their planning application 'comment' meeting..|
TOWN COUNCIL KEY CORRUPTION COALITION FIGURES
|SIMON KNOYLE GLYNNEATH TOWN COUNCILLOR||During the meeting of 28 July Simon Knoyle abused his position as a Neath Port Talbot County Councillor to hide information from the Glynneath Town Council.

He was aware at the time that the Neath Port Talbot Council had potentially breached the 1990 Environment Act and so he should have informed his fellow Glynneath Town Council members of this fact. Prior to a Glynneath Town Council dated 27 October Simon Knoyle issued a statement containing misleading information in conjunction with Del Morgan and the Council Leader Rob Jones.

On the 8 June 2020 the Glynneath Town Council discussed the covering letter to the report, but not the report, the conclusion of which is:
“Residents of Brynhyfryd are dying from the rare neurological disorder Progressive Supranuclear Palsy. These deaths are almost certainly due to specified and other potential unspecified contamination tipped at the Heol y Glyn landfill site. Public officers who have covered up this contamination are responsible for the unlawful killing of these residents.”
Councillor Morgan lives in Brynhyfryd.
A Freedom of Information request has identified that Councillor Morgan disposed of the report and it's whereabouts are unknown. CLICK HERE TO SEE THIS DOCUMENT
