NOTICE OF MOTION SUBMITTED BY COUNCILLORS EDWARD THOMAS AND ANDREW DAVIES

“The Heart of Wales line runs a vital service between rural areas on the Swansea to Shrewsbury line. However, it has suffered from underinvestment for decades and is currently running on old unreliable stock and subject to regular delays and cancellations. When the service is fully functioning, it provides a lifeline for residents and visitors while also providing safe and sustainable travel.

 

Earlier this year Transport for Wales (TfW) revealed plans to reduce the number of services on the Heart of Wales line from five to four per day, with the removal of two late evening services to Llandovery and Llandrindod also proposed from December 2024.

 

Council believes that the decision to reduce this service, and the lack of investment in stock over the last decade could jeopardise the long-term future of the line.

 

Council expresses concern with the Welsh Government’s lack of investment in rail services in Carmarthenshire, which is in stark contrast to rail investment in Southeast Wales.

 

This Council calls on the Welsh Government to immediately review the decision undertaken by Transport of Wales to reduce service on the Heart of Wales Line and consider the inequitable level of investment in transport across rural Wales”.

BUILD YSGOL HEOL GOFFA A NEW SCHOOL

 

We, the undersigned, petition Carmarthenshire County Council to retract their decision to no longer build Ysgol Heol Goffa a new specialist school that they desperately need!

 

Carmarthenshire Council have previously agreed, had planning permission and also already started the ground work to build a new school for Heol Goffa, but they have now put in a notice to say that they are no longer going ahead with the plans and pulled the plug on it all! The plans started back in 2018 to have a new school built as the current building is no longer suitable and can’t hold any more capacity. In fact, they over in capacity. The Council have not prioritised the children and their needs and well-being and the fact they desperately need new facilities for education and it puts additional strain on education and getting future children the support they need! The new school would have provided so much more support and facilities on site. It’s appalling that they can even think it’s okay to make this decision but yet can provide other schools within the county new buildings and facilities! Carmarthenshire council need to be held accountable for their ridiculous decisions and to retract what they have decided and continue with the original plans! Their claim on “financial hardship” is a load of nonsense, as they are building a brand new wellness complex and leisure centre which the school was meant to be apart of the plans !”
