Plaid Cymru president Dafydd Wigley has carried the fight to protect the village of Morfa Bychan from unwanted development to the floor of the house of commons.

Mr Wigley referred to the scheme during a debate on the Local Government and Rating Bill when he described it as an example of 'nonsense in town and country planning law' (6 November 1996, Hansard, Col 1310). Mr Wigley said:

'My area has an old planning permission that dates back to 1965. It has been kept alive by way of a few yards of tarmac that were put down for betterment levy purposes in the late 1960s, but that has meant that the planning permission is alive in perpetuity for 800 holiday homes the village of Morfa Bychan.

'It is a site of special scientific interest and needs protection. Planning law should be changes to deal with such nonsense.'
