Parking for horse boxes call
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.”
