* Angry letter ... KLS chair Mike Edwards.
In the wake of yesterday (Friday's) decision by the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB), Mike Edwards, chair of Keep Llangollen Special, has penned an angry letter to Wales's Shadow Health Minister Darren Millar, which says:
"Having seen Denbighshire CC as LPA blatantly ignore public opinion and Planning Policy Wales and now BCUHB ignore public consultation responses it occurs to me what an utter sham public consultation exercises are!
"Why does government national or local and other public bodies have the honesty to say 'we've decided to do the following......' and not go through these expensive exercises which are not going to alter anything?
"I'm afraid to say if your party were in power in the Senedd you would probably go through the same insulting processes of appearing to take people's views into consideration.
"Recent decisions by the local panning authority will ruin Llangollen's vibrant town centre and now the Health Board are closing our Community Hospital forcing patients and their family support networks to travel to Chirk or Wrexham!
"You can surely appreciate the despair the people of Llangollen feel."
