LLANWRDA COMMUNITY COUNCIL
Community Councils are responsible for local matters including: litter bins, traffic calming, local youth projects, street lighting and cleaning, dog fouling, bus shelters, allotments, footpaths and bridleways and tourism activities. Community councillors are elected for a period of four years and are there to represent the people living in their local area. We meet once every month in the village hall. All our meetings are open to the public. None of the Llanwrda Community councillors get paid.
Chairman’s End of year report 2014.
As ever, 2013/2014 has seen Llanwrda Community Council continue to play an active part in community life.
The Community Council has continued to monitor developments regarding the future of Llanwrda Primary School and remains committed to campaigning to keep it open. We also have representatives on the Cornwallis committee and hope that further progress will be made this year on it’s protection and refurbishment.
Our new bilingual Community website, funded by a £500 grant, will shortly be going live, we aim to keep it regularily updated with plenty of contributions. It will also be the online resource for information about the Community Council with contact details and agendas and minutes.
We are on track to receive our defibrillator in the coming weeks which will be sited outside the village hall and available for community use, should the need arise, it will work in conjunction with the Wales Ambulance Service and is part funded by the British Heart Foundation.
The Community Council has continued to maintain and monitor the safety of the children’s playground and skate park, and new fencing should be coming shortly as well as a new commemorative gate at the village hall. We continue to try and combat the problem of dog fouling in the village.
The flashing speed sign was finally installed on the A482 approach to the village. So far, and with the added ocassional presence of the speed camera, the village is at least a little bit safer from speeding traffic.
We continue to chase up various road improvements which have been ‘ongoing’, such as the ‘rat run’ problem through to the A40.
Hopefully, in the next few weeks we will have a couple of new village signs so that visitors, particularly coming from the Llandovery direction don’t miss us completely and head on down the A40.
We’re also currently looking at the possibility of a grant for improvement and maintenance of the War Memorial.
The Community Council has donated funds to several local organisations including the Heart of Wales line and the Llanwrda Bloomers, and most recently to the primary school to help out with transport costs to the Eisteddfod.
Finally I’d like to thank Joy, our clerk for all her work, and for keeping the whole thing together, and my fellow community councillors for all their work and community spirit.
I’d also like to thank the members of the public who attend the meetings, for preparing the Hall, and for their local knowledge, contributions and suggestions during public question time.
Everyone is welcome to attend the meetings of the council which take place in the village hall once a month on a Wednesday. There is an opportunity for members of the public to ask questions of the councillors at the end of the meeting.
If there is something that you would like to bring up at one of our monthly meetings please get in touch with one of your councillors or post your message using the website Contact page and it will be forwarded on to the appropriate person.
In line with the Local Government (Democracy) Wales) Bill 2012 Community Councils are required to publish Agendas and Minutes electronically. They are published below. The Bill also requires that provision is made for members of the public to contact the Community Council or the Clerk electronically. Hopefully these details will be added in the next few weeks.
