Coun­cil finalises as­set transfer of play­ground

Llanelli Star - - NEWS -

LLANELLI’S Dany­banc play­ground has been granted a new lease of life in more ways than lo­cal res­i­dents at Llundain Fach, Felin­foel, might ex­pect.

Llanelli Ru­ral Coun­cil put the fi­nal touches to the for­mal as­set transfer of the fa­cil­ity from Car­marthen­shire County Coun­cil when it gave its stamp of approval to com­plete a 99-year lease for the transfer of the play­ground at its coun­cil meet­ing.

The play­ground will now un­dergo a pro­gramme of ex­ten­sive re­fur­bish­ment cost­ing in the re­gion of £20,000 to breathe new life into the play fa­cil­i­ties in sup­port of the transfer.

Coun­cil leader Teg­wen De­vic­hand said: “It’s sat­is­fy­ing to fi­nally com­plete the for­mal as­set transfer of the play­ground to the coun­cil.

“It’s some­thing we’ve been ac­tively pur­su­ing over the last 12 months. More­over, res­i­dents at Llundain Fach can now look for­ward to the play­ground and its fa­cil­i­ties be­ing fully re­ju­ve­nated. Hope­fully this can be or­gan­ised to co­in­cide with the school sum­mer hol­i­days so chil­dren can en­joy us­ing the play­ground and its fa­cil­i­ties dur­ing the ex­tended break.

“The transfer of the play­ground con­tin­ues to demon­strate the coun­cil’s com­mit­ment to the lo­cal com­mu­nity by safe­guard­ing an­other lo­cal amenity from the threat of clo­sure.

“We are pleased that we can fi­nally add the play­ground to our ever grow­ing port­fo­lio of recre­ational fa­cil­i­ties as the coun­cil moves for­ward with its as­set transfer pro­gramme.”
