Future plans

The Capital Works Programme has been set for 2018/19:

  • At Dafen Park Llanelli Rural Council are planning to refurbish the old tennis court astro turf facility to create an all-weather Multi Use Games Area. The Council also plan to resurface the car park area off Maescanner Rd.
  • The Council has also agreed to fund the installation of a new bus shelter at Gorsfach in Dafen.
  • The Council has confirmed it is transferring the children’s play area at Danybanc, Felinfoel from Carmarthenshire County Council under the asset transfer programme and will be refurbishing the existing play equipment and safety surfaces as well as introducing  new play equipment. Llanelli Rural Council will be responsible for maintaining the play area following the asset transfer.

Llanelli Rural Council is committed to assisting the community maintain its existing assets.  You can view our recent activity with regards to the Community Asset Transfer programme here.

The Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 puts an emphasis on the larger Town and Community Councils in Wales to report on how they are working towards the National Well-being Goals.  We meet regularly with other Town and Community Council’s that also have a duty to report in order to inform the Carmarthenshire Public Services Board of how we are working together and addressing the pertinent themes relevant to each Council.

The Llanelli Rural Area Whole Place Plan 2015 : 2030 is how we intend to act and we employ a Community Development Officer in order to drive the plan forward.  One project, which is a direct result of the Whole Place Plan, is the Llanelli Rural Time Credits programme which is delivered in partnership with Spice.  The intention is to get more people active and volunteering in their community and to help existing groups, or even better, start new ones up for the benefit of their community.

As well as online surveys, there will be a series of public consultations based around the effect of the Whole Place Plan so far at the following venues in April & May:

  • Tuesday 24 April – Dafen Church Hall @ 6pm
  • Wednesday 25 April – Soar Chapel Vestry, Bynea @ 6pm
  • Thursday 26 April – Five Roads Community Hall @ 6pm
  • Wednesday 2 May – Bethlehem Vestry, Pwll @ 6pm
