Park­ing for horse boxes call

Llanelli Star - - LETTERS -

LLANELLI MP Nia Grif­fith has joined lo­cal horse rid­ers in call­ing for des­ig­nated park­ing for eques­trian trans­port around Pem­brey Coun­try Park.

Ms Grif­fith said Car­marthen­shire Rid­ers Group had raised con­cerns about the dif­fi­culty of trans­port­ing horses to the park due to the lack of des­ig­nated eques­trian park­ing, adding it can be dif­fi­cult to re­verse horse boxes into the small spa­ces avail­able, and many are get­ting blocked in by cars park­ing in front.

“It’s time this is­sue was ad­dressed, so I’m join­ing them in call­ing for some des­ig­nated park­ing for horse boxes around Pem­brey Coun­try Park,” said Ms Grif­fith. “This would make it much safer for horse rid­ers, but also pedes­tri­ans and other driv­ers who can be en­dan­gered by long ve­hi­cles re­vers­ing nearby.”

Ca rma r t h e n s h i r e Labour leader, Coun­cil­lor Rob James, added: “I whole­heart­edly sup­port the eques­trian com­mu­nity on their call for des­ig­nated park­ing for horse rid­ers.

“As a Labour Group we will seek to work with our MP and coun­cil of­fi­cers to make it a re­al­ity as soon as pos­si­ble.”
