Burry Port harbour car park (Long stay)

The objectors state that the proposals will affect tourism in the area, as people will not be able to afford to park, and that the coastal path should remain free.  They also state that residents pay enough council tax and that the charges will discourage people from taking exercise, which is against government advice.  They also comment that there will be a displacement of vehicles if parking charges are introduced as well as affecting senior citizens with disabilities.  A discounted annual pass should be available if the charges are introduced.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Woodlands, Burry Port (Long stay)

Objectors say that this is the last car park you can use for free in the area and that the charges will have an impact on the community.  Installation costs for car parks will outweigh income brought in from the new machines.  The proposals will reduce the wellbeing of the local community and is a step backwards in terms of the Council’s Wellbeing of Future Generations agenda.

Rotary Way, Pembrey country park (Short stay)

Proposals discourage use of coastal path.  Charges diminished by cost of installation, collection of fees and enforcement.  Prices are out of reach for OAP’S.  No provision for horse riders.  Charges are a concern for dog walkers families and to local people on low income, and will not help obesity issues.

Financial burden to students, social aspects as well as health.  Has there been a health impact assessment.
