Meet­ing to set up Peo­ple’s Park res­i­dents group

Llanelli Star - - LETTERS -

A LLANELLI coun­cil­lor has called a pub­lic meet­ing to ex­plore the pos­si­bil­ity of set­ting up a res­i­dents group to give lo­cal peo­ple a say on the de­ci­sions made re­gard­ing the fu­ture devel­op­ment of the town’s his­toric Peo­ple’s Park.

The run­ning of Peo­ple’s Park amid the iconic set­ting of Llanelli Town Hall has now been taken over by Llanelli Town Coun­cil.

Cllr Siôn Davies, who rep­re­sents the Elli Ward, said: “Many res­i­dents tell me they have con­cerns about lit­ter­ing and gen­eral up­keep in the park.

“As one of the lo­cal ward town coun­cil­lors, I want to in­volve res­i­dents in the run­ning of the park.

“I’m or­gan­is­ing a pub­lic meet­ing to be held on Wed­nes­day, June 26, at 6pm in Llanelli Town Hall.

“Res­i­dents can come and raise any con­cerns and have their say on the way Peo­ple’s Park is run.”

The run­ning of Peo­ple’s Park, which in­cludes Llanelli Town Hall, the band­stand, skate park and pad­dling pool, was re­cently trans­ferred from Car­marthen­shire County Coun­cil to Llanelli Town Coun­cil.

New im­prove­ment works are al­ready planned for the park, in­clud­ing the re­moval of graf­fiti, re­fur­bish­ment of the chang­ing rooms and re-lay­ing of the bowl­ing green.
