The Executive Board Member considered a report to support Carmarthen Shopmobility with a further grant of £14,650 for a twelve month period commencing in September 2018.

4.            PROPOSED TRAFFIC CALMING - GARREGLWYD, PEMBREY

 

The Executive Board Member considered a report on proposals by the Authority, following a request received from Persimmon Homes, for the introduction of a Priority Give Way System at Garreglwyd Pembrey due to the narrow width of the existing public highway from the main A484 to the Garreglwyd Housing Estate where there was insufficient width to accommodate both footways for pedestrians and maintain two-way traffic flow for vehicles. The proposal, if adopted, would facilitate the safe traffic flow through the narrow road with priority afforded to northbound travelling vehicles to protect the Strategic Highway Network the cost of which would be borne by the developer under a Section 278 Agreement.

 

It was reported that following publication of the proposal, no objections had been received from the statutory consultees. However, 10 written objections had been received, which were detailed within the report together with the officer responses.

 

RESOLVED that the objections received to the proposed Priority Give Way System at Garreglwyd, Pembrey be noted, but that the Order be introduced in the interests of general road safety to facilitate the provision of a safe footway link for pedestrians from the main A484 to the Garreglwyd estate and to manage the safe flow of traffic through the narrowing of the Highway.
