This is a special section for the work of the Furnace Action Committee, formed after a public meeting in Llanelli with the aim of stopping the Home Office’s plan to house asylum seekers in the Stradey Park Hotel, Llanelli.
The four-star hotel currently operates as a going concern and we wish to see it continue in business to play its vital role in Carmarthenshire’s tourism policy.
The hotel is completely unsuitable for use as accommodation for asylum seekers. The plan also puts nearly 100 jobs in jeopardy.
The Furnace Action Committee fully supports Carmarthenshire Council’s preferred model of distributing asylum seekers throughout the wider community, a model which offers so much more for their health and wellbeing.
