COUNCIL TAX CONTINUES TO FALL! - 14/03/2014

Llanelli Rural Council residents continue to see a fall in their Council Tax bill following the Council’s decision to reduce its precept for 2014/15.

The decision was reached at a Special Council meeting held on 25 February, 2014, where Members met to discuss the budget for the year ahead. It was agreed that the charge per ‘Band D’ property will be £125.22 giving a decrease of 25p.
Council Leader Cllr. Giles Morgan stated, “I am delighted that the Council has been able to cut the precept at the same time as expanding the service it already provides. We have already agreed to accept the transfer of community facilities from Carmarthenshire County Council as part of its Community Asset Transfer Procedure. The play areas in Cilsaig, Dafen, Pontyates and Swiss Valley will be up-graded after the legal process has been completed. The MUGA in Cefncaeau will also be transferred into our ownership as will Pwll Pavilion and part of the surrounding area which will be improved.
“A commitment has also been made to further financially support sports clubs in the Rural Council’s area that are facing increased fees for playing on County Council pitches. There will also be a further financial contribution to The National Eisteddfod of Wales - Carmarthenshire taking place in Llanelli in August 2014.
“There will be greater concentration on community development in response to the report on Public Service Governance and Delivery.

“All other services will continue including the successful delivery of a range of Work Based Learning Programmes as part of the Skills Academy Wales Consortium.”
