PETITION - MACHYNYS EAST RESIDENTS ASSOCIATION - ADOPTION AND MAINTENANCE OF ESTATE ROADS pdf icon PDF 330 KB

Minutes:

Further to minute 8 of the Council held on the 10th April 2019 a petition was presented by the Machynys East Residents Association to request that the County Council adopts the roads within the Machynys East development in Llanelli. Council resolved to refer the request to the Executive Board Member for Environment for consideration.

 

The Executive Board Member considered the petition along with a report which recommended that the estate roads are not adopted due to the costs, future liabilities and the legal reasons involved.

 

Following due consideration of the petition and the concerns raised by Machynys East Residents Association, the Executive Board Member was minded to approve the recommendations of the report not to adopt the estate roads on the basis that:

 

·         There had been a clear understanding that the estate roads would not be adopted and would remain in private ownership.

·         The developer had a commercial arrangement in place with a management company.

·         The properties were marketed as homes on private roads.

·         It had been made clear to the conveyancer that as there was no S38 Highway Adoption Agreement in place, there was no prospect of future highway adoption.

 

RESOLVED that:

 

3.1       the recommendation not to adopt the estate road be endorsed.

3.2       a letter be sent to the petitioner detailing the reasons for the decision.
