Roedd swn breciau yn sgrechian a chyrn ceir yn ddigon o brawf fod angen gwneud rhywbeth i ostegu’r traffig.  Roedd arwyddion cyfyngiadau cyflymder sy’n fflachio yn opsiwn arall a ystyriwyd gan yr Aelodau.

Cllr. C. Campbell advised that he had not received a report from Mr John McEvoy, CCC regarding the approaches to the A40 at the Dryslwyn Square location.  He agreed to follow up the matter.  A discussion took place and it was felt that local residents were more aware of the seriousness of the traffic speed at this location, brakes screeching and car horns sounding were proof enough that something needs to be done to calm traffic.  Flashing speed lights were another option considered by members.

Unwaith y byddai’r penderfyniadau hyn wedi’u gwneud, gellid archebu’r eitemau.

Following notification from the National Lottery it is now in order to proceed with the purchase of two Defibrillators and Cabinets.  Before proceeding, members are to confirm to the clerk whether a heated or unheated cabinet would be the best option and whether they should be locked or unlocked.  Once these decisions were made, then the items may be ordered.

17/26 ADRODDIAD Y CYNGHORYDD SIR / COUNTY COUNCILLORS REPORT

Yn aelod o’r Pwyllgor Cymunedau a Materion Gwledig, dywedodd y Cyng. Campbell ei fod wedi bod yn mynychu cyfarfodydd ac yn edrych ar rai meysydd sy’n cael eu hystyried yn annelwig yn Sir Gaerfyrddin, e.e., Y mannau gwan ar gyfer derbyn band eang a’r modd y mae hyn yn effeithio ar fusnesau gwledig.

Hefyd, ef yw cadeirydd panel sy’n ystyried tlodi o fewn y Sir ac sy’n gweithio ar ffyrdd o helpu teuluoedd mewn sefyllfaoedd o’r fath i ddod o’r sefyllfaoedd hynny.  Mae wedi ei gadarnhau bod 32% o aelwydydd bellach yn byw o dan y lefel tlodi ac mae 58% o’r aelwydydd hyn mewn ardaloedd gwledig. Bydd ef yn cyfarfod eto ag Eluned Morgan AC ynghylch y mater hwn ac yn ceisio am gyllid i helpu i fynd i’r afael â’r mater difrifol iawn hwn.

Mae’r Cyng. Campbell hefyd yn edrych ar yr effeithiau y gallai BREXIT ei chael ar y gymuned amaethyddol, gan y cydnabuwyd bod 90% o fwyd/cynnyrch yn mynd i’r UE.

Mae hefyd yn cymryd rhan yn, ac yn gweithio ar, y “Cynllun 10 Tref”, sef prosiect sy’n gweithio â threfi ar sut i gyflawni gwelliannau.

Mae Prif Weithredwr CSG, Mark James ac Emlyn Dole, Arweinydd y Cyngor, wedi ymweld â’r llwybr beicio sydd ar waith o Abergwili i Landeilo. Maent wedi cael argraff dda iawn o’r datblygiad ac maent dan yr argraff y bydd hwn yn ased  i’w drysori yn Sir Gaerfyrddin.  Mae’r cynllun pum mlynedd hwn bellach yn gynllun dwy flynedd.

Mae’r Cyng. Peter Hughes-Griffiths yn Llysgennad ac yn gyswllt rhwng Cyngor Sir Caerfyrddin a’r Cynghorau Tref a Chymuned yn Sir Gaerfyrddin, a bydd yn cysylltu â Chynghorwyr a Chlercod er mwyn gweithio gyda’i gilydd er budd trigolion Sir Gaerfyrddin.

As a member of the Communities and Rural Affairs committee, Cllr. C. Campbell advised that he had been attending meetings and looking into some grey areas within Carmarthenshire, eg. Broad Band not spots and how this is affecting rural businesses.

Also, he chairs a panel looking into poverty within the county and working on how to get families out this situation.  It has been established that 32% of households now live below the poverty level and 58% of theses households are in rural areas. He will again be meeting with Eluned Morgan  AM regarding this matter and will be trying for funding to help address this very serious matter.

Cllr. Campbell is also looking into the effects that BREXIT may have on the farming community as it has been recognised that 90% of food/produce goes to the EU.

He is also involved and working on the “10 Town Plan” which is a project working with towns on how to achieve improvements.

Chief Executive of CCC Mark James and Emlyn Dole, Leader of the Council have visited the cycle path in progress from Abergwili to Llandeilo and are very impressed with the development and have the impression that this will be an outstanding asset/treasure for Carmarthenshire.  The five year plan is now a two year plan.

Cllr. Peter Hughes-Griffiths is an Ambassador and link between Carmarthenshire County Council and Town and Community Councils in Carmarthenshire and will be contacting Councillors and Clerks in order to work together for the benefit of the residents of Carmarthenshire.

 

17/27 UNRHYW FATER ARALL / ANY OTHER BUSINESS

1. Trafodwyd gwelededd wrth y gyffordd ger Capel Cross Inn/Siop Dryslwyn, Dryslwyn.  Gofynnwyd i’r Clerc ysgrifennu at un o’r trigolion lleol i ofyn a ellir torri llwyni’r Llawrwydden yn ôl er mwyn gwella’r sefyllfa.

2. Oherwydd bod Siop Gymunedol Dryslwyn mor boblogaidd, mae’r traffig wedi cynyddu erbyn hyn, ac roedd pryder ynghylch cyflymder rhai modurwyr. Awgrymwyd i’r Clerc gysylltu â Mr McEvoy, CSG i gael awgrymiadau ynghylch mesurau gostegu traffig.

3. Cadarnhawyd nad oedd y lloches fws ar Sgwâr Dryslwyn yn cael ei defnyddio mwyach, gan fod llwybrau bysiau yn mynd i mewn i Gwrt Henri erbyn hyn. Fodd bynnag, y farn oedd y gall llwybrau newid rywbryd yn y dyfodol, ac y gellid defnyddio’r lloches fws eto. Dim camau gweithredu pellach.

 

1. The visibility at the junction near Cross Inn Chapel / Dryslwyn Shop, Dryslwyn was discussed.  The clerk was requested to write to a local resident to ask if the Laurel Shrub may be cut back in order to improve the situation.

2.  Due to the popularity of the Dryslwyn Community Shop, traffic has now increased and there was concern regarding the speed of some motorists.  It was suggested that the clerk contact Mr McEvoy of CCC for suggestions regarding traffic calming measures.

3.  It was established that the bus shelter at Dryslwyn Square was no longer in use as the bus routes now entered Court Henry.  However, it was thought that routes may change sometime in the future and the bus shelter could be brought back into use. No further action.

Cytunwyd yn unfrydol i dderbyn Mrs Jones ar y Cyngor. Bydd Mrs Jones yn cael gwahoddiad i gyfarfod nesaf Cyngor Cymuned Llangathen.

Roedd un swydd wag o hyd yn y plwyf yn Ward y De. Byddai’r clerc yn trefnu posteri er mwyn ail hysbysebu’r swydd, ac yn gwneud trefniadau i roi’r wybodaeth hon ar y wefan.

A letter of application for the vacancy onto the North Ward had been received by Mrs Beryl Jones, Broad Oak.  The letter had been forwarded to all existing Councillors.  It was unanimously agreed that Mrs Jones by accepted onto the council.  Mrs Jones will be invited to the next meeting of the Llangathen Community Council.

There remains one vacancy in the South Ward of the parish.  The clerk to arrange for posters to re-advertise and also make arrangements for the website to be updated with this information.

Cof/Min 16/65 (1) A40 SGWAR DRYSLWYN SQUARE, DRYSLWYN

Manylion y cyfarfod safle ar Sgwâr Dryslwyn, ddydd Iau 8 Mehefin 2017.

Yn bresennol: John McEvoy, CSC, y Cyng. Sir Cefin Campbell, y Cyng. Mark Williams, y Cyng. Linda Hughes a Mairwen Rees (Clerc).

Cyflwynwyd pryderon ynghylch diogelwch i Mr McEvoy. Dywedodd nad ei gyfrifoldeb ef oedd yr A40/y gefnffordd, ond cyfrifoldeb Llywodraeth Cymru (LlC)/Asiant Cefnffyrdd De Cymru.

Dywedodd fod amseroedd teithio yn fater pwysig i Lywodraeth Cymru.

Nododd yr aelodau eu pryderon ynghylch cyflymder, goddiweddyd, y croeslinellau, a’r rhan o’r ffordd nad oedd modd ei gweld oherwydd y pant yn y ffordd o ochr Caerfyrddin.

Gwelwyd enghraifft o oddiweddyd yn ystod y cyfarfod.

Trafodwyd y llain welededd ar ffyrdd dynesu’r groesffordd o gyfeiriadau Cwrt Henri a Chastell Dryslwyn, ac er y teimlwyd i ddechrau y byddai’n syniad lleihau’r llain welededd, ar ôl gweld lori fawr iawn yn gyrru ymlaen i’r A40, teimlwyd y byddai lleihau’r llain welededd yn golygu y byddai’n rhaid i gerbydau mawr lenwi’r gefnffordd gyfan er mwyn troi’r gornel.

Eglurodd Mr McEvoy fod Llywodraeth Cymru weithiau’n cymryd cyfrifoldeb dros gyfran o’r ffyrdd dynesu, ac y byddai’n ymchwilio ac yn cynghori yn unol â hynny.

Er bod Mr McEvoy yn deall y pryderon ac yn cydymdeimlo, ailbwysleisiodd ei bod yn anodd iawn cael unrhyw fath o ddeialog â Llywodraeth Cymru ynglyn â materion o’r natur hon.

Dywedodd y Cyng. C Campbell fod Mr McEvoy wedi bod i ffwrdd o’r gwaith oherwydd salwch, ond ers iddo ddychwelyd roedd wedi rhoi gwybod y byddai’n ymchwilio i’r hyn a drafodwyd yn y cyfarfod safle, ac yn rhannu unrhyw wybodaeth pan fyddai ar gael.

 

Details of the site meeting at Dryslwyn Square, Thursday 8th June 2017

Present: John McEvoy, CCC., County Cllr. Cefin Campbell, Cllr. Mark Williams, Cllr. Linda Hughes and Mairwen Rees (clerk).

Concerns regarding safety issued were put to Mr McEvoy.  He advised that the A40/trunk road was not his responsibility but that of Welsh Government(WG)/SWTRA.

He advised that as far as WG were concerned journey times were important issues.

Members detailed their concerns regarding speed, overtaking, hatch markings and blind spot due to dip in road at the approach from the Carmarthen side.

Overtaking was witnessed during the meeting.

The splay on the approach roads to the crossroads from the Court Henry and Dryslwyn Castle directions were discussed and whilst it was deemed an idea to reduce the splay, upon witnessing a very large lorry enter the A40 it was felt that reducing the splay would result in large vehicles having to take up the whole of the trunk road in order to make the turn.

Mr McEvoy explained that WG sometimes took responsibility on a proportion of the approach roads and he would investigate and advise accordingly.

Whilst Mr McEvoy was very understanding and sympathised with the concerns, he reiterated that is was very difficult to have any sort of dialogue with WG regarding matters of this nature.

Cllr. C. Campbell advised that Mr McEvoy had been away from work due to illness but since his return he had advised that he would be investigating what was discussed at the site meeting and would pass on any information when it was available.

Dywedodd y Cyng. Campbell ei fod yn aelod o’r Bwrdd Gweithredol a’i fod yn gyfrifol am Gymunedau a Materion Gwledig. Byddai’n ymchwilio i ffyrdd o fyw yn Sir Gaerfyrddin wledig, ac yn gweithio gyda sefydliadau, er enghraifft Undeb Cenedlaethol yr Amaethwyr (NFU), FUW, LANTRA, CFfI, Cyfoeth Naturiol Cymru.

Byddai’n cyfarfod ag Eluned Morgan AC ac yn trafod ei hadroddiad ar Gymru Wledig. Roedd Mynd i’r Afael â Thlodi yn fater arall y byddai’n rhoi sylw iddo.

O fis Medi, byddai tri fan llyfrgell newydd yn ymweld â chymunedau. Byddai gan y faniau hyn fynediad i’r anabl, iPads, catalogau, cymorth i’r rheiny y mae arnynt ei angen, a chanopi gyda lle i eistedd.

Dywedodd y Cyng. Campbell hefyd y dyfarnwyd y teitl Is-gadeirydd Cyngor Sir Caerfyrddin i’r Cyng. Mansel Charles.

Er diddordeb, dywedodd y Cyng. Campbell fod hawl i siarad Cymraeg yn ystod cyfarfodydd ac nad oedd yn angenrheidiol cynnig gwasanaeth cyfieithu ffurfiol cyhyd â bod rhywun yn bresennol yn y cyfarfod a oedd yn barod i gyfieithu i unigolyn nad yw’n deall Cymraeg.

 

Cllr. Campbell advised that he is a member of The Executive Board and is responsible for Communities and Rural Affairs.  He will be looking into ways of living in rural Carmarthenshire and working with organisations such as NFU, FUW, LANTRA, YFC, NRW.

He will be meeting with Eluned Morgan AM and discussing her report on Rural Wales.  Tackling Poverty is another issue he will be looking into.

As from September, there will be three new Library vans visiting communities.  These vans will have disabled access, I-pads, catalogues, assistance to those that need it and a canopy with seating facilities.

Cllr. Campbell also advised that Cllr. Mansel Charles had been awarded the title of Vice Chairman to Carmarthenshire County Council.

As a point of interest, Cllr. Campbell advised that during meetings it is a right to talk Welsh and that it is not necessary to offer a formal translation service but to ensure that someone present at the meeting is prepared to translate to a non speaking person.

17/19 UNRHYW FATER ARALL / ANY OTHER BUSINESS

1. Dywedwyd bod yr arwydd “Bancydderwen” mewn man amhriodol, ac yn aml yn cael ei guddio oherwydd parcio. Hefyd, roedd rhifau Bancydderwen a Bryn Dewi yn peri dryswch parhaus. Roedd parseli’n cael eu hanfon i’r cyfeiriadau anghywir, ac roedd gwasanaethau brys wedi mynd i’r lleoliad anghywir ar fwy nag un achlysur. Byddai’r Cyng. Campbell a’r Clerc yn ymchwilio i’r mater ac yn ceisio trefnu cyfarfod safle â CSC i unioni’r mater.

2. Cais bod y cloddiau’n cael eu torri ar gyffyrdd/gorneli, er mwyn ei gwneud yn haws gweld.

3. Mainc Derwenfawr. Rhoi sylw i’r mater o’i adleoli. Gofyn am brisiau.

1.  It has been reported that the sign “Bancydderwen” Broad Oak is sited inappropriately,  and is frequently obscured due to parking.  Also the numbering of Bancydderwen and Bryn Dewi is causing ongoing confusion.  Deliveries are going to the wrong addresses and emergency services have gone to the wrong location on more that one occasion.  Cllr. Campbell and the clerk to look into the matter and attempt to arrange a site meeting with CCC to rectify the matter.

2.  Request that junctions/corners be trashed in order to aid visibility.

3.  Broad Oak bench.  To look into re-placing. Request prices.

4.  Dip in road outside Mazda Garage, Dryslwyn.  Cllr. Campbell and the clerk to make enquiries.

16/54 CAIS CYNLLUNIO / PLANNING APPLICATION E / 34266

A letter had been received from JCR Planning Ltd regarding the planning application numbered above for a Free Range Poultry Unit, Land at Glanmyddyfi, Pentrefelin.

Also, a plan showing the proposed layout of the junction entering/exiting the A40.

County Cllr. Cefin Campbell would be meeting the planning officers regarding this application and asked for the views of Community Councillors on the matter. Whilst it was stated that the existing junction was unsuitable for the vehicles which would frequent the highway of the proposed development, the amendments did not go far enough in ensuring safety measures.  It was felt that more land should be made available to ensure a better splay and to enable vehicles to pass alongside each other freely once they turned in off the A40.

Cllr. Campbell to convey these opinions to the planning officers.

Plaid-led Carmarthenshire County Council has played a key part in ensuring one of the biggest investments ever in Wales – the Swansea Bay City Deal, which covers almost all of south-west Wales. £1.3 billion will be invested over 15 years. Of that, £241m comes from Welsh and UK governments, £360m from other public sector funding and £673m from the private sector. It will deliver up to 10,000 new jobs for the region.
There are three specific projects for Carmarthenshire:
• £200m for the Wellness Village and Life Science Village at Delta Lakes, Llanelli aims to create 1,850 high quality jobs and boost the economy by £467 million. Led by the council in partnership between Hywel Dda and  Abertawe Bro Morgannwg Health Boards and Swansea University, it will include laboratory and clinic space and an incubation facility for business start-up, research and development; a new state-of-the-art sports and leisure centre, a wellbeing centre, a wellness hotel and an assisted living village all interlinked and set within a ‘green’ eco-park.
• £24m for Yr Egin involves the construction of a creative and digital hub and the development of a creative industry sector cluster at Carmarthen. It will create around 200 jobs and help the local economy, along with
boosting the Welsh language when S4C moves its HQ to the building.
• £30m for a skills and talent initiative to educate and train specific sector skills to meet the demand of the City Deal themes of Digital, Life Science and Wellbeing, Energy and Smart Manufacturing.
Region-wide projects include:
• £55m for expansion of broadband and 4G – and possible 5G.

Dim gwrthwynebiadau  /No objections

Roedd Dr. Rhys Phillips wedi anfon ymlaen adroddiad gan LvW Highways ynghylch y cais hwn. Roedd yr adroddiad wedi cael ei anfon ymlaen at yr holl Gynghorwyr i’w sylw.

Cadarnhaodd y Cyng. C. Campbell ei fod yn dal i aros am yr adroddiad llawn gan Cyfoeth Naturiol Cymru a fyddai’n ei gynorthwyo i wneud ei benderfyniad ar y mater, gan gynnwys yr effaith ar yr amgylchedd a rheoli dwr tail.

Planning Application E / 34266 – Proposed Free Range Poultry Unit, Glanmyddyfi, Pentrefelin, Llandeilo.

Dr. Rhys Phillips had forwarded a report from LvW Highways regarding this application.  The report had been forwarded to all Councillors for their attention.

County Cllr. C. Campbell confirmed that he was still awaiting the full report from National Resources Wales which would assist him in making his decision on the matter, including the effect on the environment and effluent management.

16/45 ADRODDIAD Y CYNGHORYDD SIR / COUNTY COUNCILLORS REPORT

Dywedodd y Cyng. Campbell y byddai’r gyllideb yn cael ei chadarnhau cyn hir. Roedd disgwyl i’r costau fod yn niwtral o ganlyniad i gyllid a gafwyd gan Lywodraeth Cymru.

Ffordd osgoi Llandeilo. Yn dilyn lobio mewn cyfarfodydd gan y Cyng. Edward Thomas, Llandeilo, ei hun, ac Adam Price AC, roedd disgwyl erbyn hyn i’r gwaith ar y ffordd osgoi ddechrau erbyn 2019.  Cadarnhawyd hyn gan Ken Skates AC, Ysgrifennydd y Cabinet dros yr Economi a’r Seilwaith, gyda chyllideb o £90 miliwn. Nid oedd penderfyniad wedi cael ei wneud ynghylch y llwybrau eto.

Roedd Llwybr Beiciau Caerfyrddin yn dod yn ei flaen, ac roedd y gwaith yn mynd rhagddo rhwng Abergwili a Nantgaredig, ac, er efallai y byddai ychydig o oedi ar adran Nantgaredig, roedd yn edrych yn debygol y byddai gwaith yn dechrau cyn hir yng Ngelli Aur.

Eglurodd y Cyng. Campbell ei farn ef a’r Cyng. Alun Lenny am y mater ynglyn â Jackie Thompson (blogiwr), a fu yn y wasg leol yn ddiweddar.

Cllr. Campbell advised that the budget would be decided on soon.  Costs are anticipated to be neutral due to funds having been received from Welsh Government.

Llandeilo by-pass.  Following the lobbying at meetings by himself, Cllr. Edward Thomas, Llandeilo and Adam Price AM, the by-pass is now forecasted to commence by 2019.  This had been confirmed by Ken Skates AM, Cabinet Secretary for Economy and Infrastructure, with a budget of £90 million.  Routes were as yet to be decided on.

The Carmarthen Cycle Track was moving along positively with work well underway between Abergwili and Nantgaredig and although there may be a slight delay at the Nantgaredig section, it looks likely that work will soon commence at Gelli Aur.

Cllr. Campbell explained his and Cllr. Alun Lenny’s views on the Jackie Thompson (blogger) matter which had recently been reported in the local press.

16/46 GOFYNIAD PRAESEPT /  PRECEPT REQUIREMENT 2017 / 2018

Gofynnwyd am ofyniad praesept 2017/2018 gan Gyngor Sir Gâr.

Nid oedd manylion costau “Goleuadau Troetffyrdd” ar gael, ond ar gyfer y flwyddyn flaenorol, y gost oedd £1668.98 (£1390.82 + £278.16 TAW).

Manylion am Derfyn Gwariant Adran 137 ar gyfer 2017/18 – sef £7.57 yr etholwr. Roedd 418 o etholwyr yn y plwyf.

Rheoliadau Awdurdodau Lleol (Cyfrifo Sylfaen Treth Gyngor)(Cymru) 1995: y ffigur ar gyfer cymuned Llangathen 2017/18 oedd 262.41.

Ymchwiliwyd i Incwm a Gwariant Gwirioneddol y flwyddyn flaenorol, ynghyd â’r gyllideb/gwariant hyd at 16/1/17.

Ymchwiliwyd i’r holl wariant ac ystyriwyd y costau. Cytunwyd mai cynyddu’r praesept rywfaint fyddai’r ffordd orau ymlaen, yn ogystal â defnyddio arian wrth gefn a oedd eisoes ar gael pe byddai angen.

Cytunwyd y dylid cynyddu’r gofyniad praesept ar gyfer 2017/18 i £7,200.

Yn unol â hynny, llofnodwyd y ffurflen gan y Clerc, fel y Swyddog Ariannol Cyfrifol, a’r Cadeirydd. Byddai’r ffurflen yn cael ei hanfon ymlaen i Adran Adnoddau Cyngor Sir Gâr.

The precept requirement for 2017 / 2018 was requested by Carmarthenshire County Council.

Details of “Footway Lighting” charges for the financial year were unavailable but for the previous year were £1668.98 (£1390.82 + £278.16 VAT).

Details of Section 137 Expenditure Limit for 2017/18 – this being £7.57 per elector. There being 418 electors within the parish.

The Local Authorities (Calculation of Council Tax Base )(Wales) Regulations 1995, the figure for the Llangathen community 2017/18 being 262.41

Actual Income and Expenditure for the previous year was examined as was the budget / expenditure to 16/1/17.

All areas of expenditure were explored and costs considered. It was agreed that a modest increase of the precept would be best practise and to use reserves already available should it be necessary.

It was resolved that the precept requirement for 2017/18 should  be increased to £7,200.

The clerk, as the Responsible Financial Officer  and  Chair duly signed the form which is to be forwarded to Resources Department, CCC.

16/47 UNRHYW FATER ARALL / ANY OTHER BUSINESS

1.  Cafwyd trafodaeth am gyflwr y priffyrdd, yn enwedig mewn ardaloedd amaethyddol, yn ystod misoedd y gaeaf ac yn ystod tywydd garw.

A discussion took place regarding the condition of highways, particularly in farming areas, and during winter months and inclement weather conditions.

2.  Codwyd pryderon am ddyfodol Plasty Gelli Aur.

Concerns were raised as to the future of Golden Grove Mansion.

3.  Roedd car wedi gyrru oddi ar y ffordd ger Sgwâr Milton, Dryslwyn. Yn ffodus, ni chafodd y fenyw ifanc ei hanafu. Roedd hi’n garedig iawn wedi rhoi gwybod i’r Clerc bod y fainc gerllaw wedi cael ei difrodi, a’i bod wedi rhoi gwybod i’w chwmni yswiriant am hynny. Byddai’n rhoi gwybod i’r Clerc am unrhyw benderfyniadau y byddai’r cwmni yswiriant yn eu gwneud.

A car had veered off the road near Milton Square, Dryslwyn.  Fortunately, the young lady was unharmed. She had very kindly informed the clerk that the nearby bench had been damaged for which she had informed her insurance company of. She will keep the clerk informed of any decisions made by the insurance company.

DATE OF NEXT MEETING

Penderfynwyd y byddai cyfarfod nesaf Cyngor Cymuned Llangathen yn cael ei gynnal ddydd Mawrth 21 Mawrth 2017 yn yr Ystafell Ddarllen, Cwrt-henri am 7.30 p.m.
