Welsh councils should delay implementing new local development plans until new government guidelines on their Welsh language impact are published, Cymdeithas yr Iaith Gymraeg has insisted.Oh, for...!
Toni Schiavone, the language group's sustainable communities spokesman, says Cymdeithas members will seek meetings with council leaders, chief executives and planning officers to call for the postponement.Well, will you be speaking English to do that? Because otherwise, no-one'll understand you!
They also want local reports on the state of the Welsh language locally and to set targets to increase the number of Welsh speakers in each community.If your minority language needs government help to survive, it's time to face facts. It's dying.
Mr Schiavone said: "All this delay in publishing these new guidelines is a mystery.
''It's causing frustration, but most importantly, it is highly damaging to the Welsh language," he added.*shrugs*
