<AI10>

7 .1        QUESTION BY COUNCILLOR ROB JAMES TO COUNCILLOR PETER HUGHES-GRIFFITHS, EXECUTIVE BOARD MEMBER FOR CULTURE, SPORT AND TOURISM

 

 

“Could you state the reasons why Carmarthenshire Council have taken the decision to advertise for expressions of interest for a property transaction, rather than a competitive open tendering process to procure services in Parc Howard?”

 

 

</AI10>

<AI11>

7 .2        QUESTION BY COUNCILLOR JOHN JENKINS TO COUNCILLOR EMLYN DOLE, LEADER OF THE COUNCIL

 

 

“Given the obvious and overwhelming opposition from the public in Llanelli to this Authority’s plan to replace a well-used tennis court in Parc Howard with a car park which will be accessed by a blatantly unsuitable access point via Old Road; regardless and separate from the planning process, would the Leader of the Council acknowledge that this element of the Parc Howard Masterplan is deeply unpopular and would he care to demonstrate his reasonableness and willingness to listen and engage with the community in Llanelli by withdrawing Planning Application number S/35541 if only pending meaningful public consultation, separation from the planning process, on the provision of car parking within the Parc Howard Masterplan?”

 

 

</AI11>

<AI12>

7 .3        QUESTION BY COUNCILLOR EDWARD THOMAS TO COUNCILLOR HAZEL EVANS, EXECUTIVE BOARD MEMBER FOR ENVIRONMENT

 

 

“Carmarthen to Llandeilo Cycle Path - I wonder if you can please give us an update on this fantastic project, in particular when can we expect a start on the Llandeilo side of the cycle path. The Llandeilo side of the cycle path strikes me as being the easiest part of the path with fewer landlords to negotiate with.”

 

 

</AI12>

<AI13>

7 .4        QUESTION BY COUNCILLOR ANDREW JAMES TO COUNCILLOR CEFIN CAMPBELL, EXECUTIVE BOARD MEMBER FOR COMMUNITIES AND RURAL AFFAIRS

 

 

 

“Carmarthenshire County Council is one of seven local authorities who nominate elected County Councillors to serve on the board of management of The Brecon Beacons National Park Authority. Representing Carmarthenshire on the Park are Cllrs Glynog Davies of Quarter Bach and myself for Llangadog Ward.  The Brecon Beacons National Park in 2017 is celebrating its 60th Birthday and together  with the fact that 2017 is promoted as the  year of the Legends it is anticipated that large crowds of visitors will be flocking to the area. This is so appropriate considering that the local ward of Llangadog is closely linked to the legendary story of the "lady of the lake”.  The stakeholders in the local area partnership are The Brecon Beacons National Park Authority, Welsh Water Authority and Carmarthenshire County Council. As a financial contribution has already been made from the first two parties, I therefore formally ask the question, will Carmarthenshire County Council also contribute financially to the expenditure that is needed to develop the local infrastructure within the area?”

<AI14>

7 .5        QUESTION BY COUNCILLOR ANDREW JAMES TO COUNCILLOR HAZEL EVANS, EXECUTIVE BOARD MEMBER FOR ENVIRONMENT

 

 

“On Friday 24th March 2017, the recycling centre at Llangadog better known to the local community as All Waste Services closed its gates. The site in question is fit for purpose, is licenced with full planning to accommodate recycling in the north eastern side of the county. Furthermore the site is now on the market with the local estate agents.

 

It is now nearly 3 months since the residents of Llangadog and the surrounding area have had to manage with basic and temporary recycling facilities, my question to Cllr Evans is –When and where will the recycling be returned to normal services?”
