Tyrone O'Sullivan claims Mumbles chalet decision 'undemocratic'


A miners' leader who lost the latest round in his bid to live permanently in his holiday chalet has spoken of his anger at the decision.

Tyrone O'Sullivan told BBC Wales the decision was "undemocratic" and he will continue to fight.

The chairman of Tower Colliery in the Cynon Valley wanted to remove a restricted occupancy condition which means he and his wife can only live at Langcliffe Park, Mumbles, 10 months of the year.

But Swansea councillors rejected the application by Mr O'Sullivan, saying approval would set an "undesirable precedent".
