Council Leader's message to the people of Aberavon & Baglan Moors
In addition to keeping Council Tax levels down, the Labour administration on Neath Port Talbot Council has been determined to continue to do the big things well.
The things like Baglan Energy Park and the development of town centres.
We have also been determined to continue to have the best Education and Social Services departments (according to independent inspectors).
However, we also want to focus on the smaller things, which matter to people.
We have already scrapped the £5 fee for bulk refuse collections and began a crackdown on flytipping.
In April, we will begin a neighbourhood system where the County Borough will be divided up
into 12 areas. Each area will have a supervisor and a team of staff who will be responsible for all the small but important jobs in their area.
We will be putting an extra £1.5 million into neighbourhood services to ensure that this new system works and people see a difference.
