Coronavirus & Council Business Arrangements **UPDATE 01/04/20**


Council and Committee Meetings have been postponed for the foreseeable future. The Chairman’s civic role has been put on hold so all engagements have been postponed or cancelled to limit non-essential social activity and interaction

with the community. If you have an urgent query you can still contact the Council by emailing us at [email protected].

The following services have also been affected:

Llanelli District Cemetery

Following advice in regard to the recent introduction of emergency legislation to safeguard public health by the Welsh Government and in particular to comply with strict social distancing requirements by not encouraging public gatherings of more than two persons, it is with deep regret that Llanelli District Cemetery is closed to the general public until further notice. The only exception to this will be to facilitate funeral services.  

The decision to close the cemetery to the public has not been taken lightly and your general support and understanding in not attempting to visit the grounds is appreciated at this poignant and difficult time. We sincerely regret any distress this action may cause but your personal safety is of the utmost importance to us so please stay safe by staying at home. 

Cemetery administration and management can be contacted via telephone on 01554 773710 or via email: [email protected] or by post: Llanelli District Cemetery, Swansea Road, Llanelli, Carmarthenshire, SA15 3EX

Community halls, play areas and facilities

Following UK Government advice on social distancing measures to reduce social interaction between people in order to reduce the transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19) until further notice all non-essential services will be suspended. Therefore all Llanelli Rural Council Community Halls, Resource Centres and Sports Pavilions will be closed to general public use from 18th March.  Furthermore all Council run playing fields, parks and play areas will be formally closed from 24th March.

The Post Office Outreach facilities operated at Ponthenri Community Hall will remain open. Llanelli Rural Council will be closely monitoring the situation and following government advice as required.
