Dywedodd y Cyng. Cefin Campbell fod disgwyl y byddai arbedion o £12 miliwn yn y gyllideb flynyddol o ganlyniad i feini prawf fformiwla Llywodraeth Cymru. Byddai’n rhaid i gyfrifiadau o ran y gyllideb ddangos lle y byddai’r arbedion yn cael eu gwneud. Gallai’r Dreth Gyngor godi 4.3%. Byddai prif gyfarfod y gyllideb yn cael ei gynnal ym mis Mawrth 2018.

Roedd Cyngor Sir Gâr yn ymchwilio i’r posibilrwydd o sefydlu cwmni tai newydd, sef “Arms Length Housing Company”, a fyddai’n cynnig grantiau i adeiladu tai, dychwelyd tai i’r farchnad rentu, ac adfywio tai gwag. Byddai hyn yn cynorthwyo pobl ifanc i fynd ar yr ysgol dai, ac yn cynnig tai i’r digartref ac i bersonél y lluoedd arfog sydd wedi’u hanafu.

Roedd prosiect CWM Environmental ar fin dod i ben, a byddai Cyngor Sir Gâr yn ymchwilio i’r posibilrwydd o sefydlu cwmni tebyg.

Dywedodd y Cyng. Cefin Campbell am gyfarfod yr oedd yn ei gadeirio yn Ngelli Aur ar 1 Chwefror, a fyddai’n ymdrin â materion yn ymwneud â dyfodol y gymuned cefn gwlad. Byddai Adam Price AC, Simon Thomas AC, a Jonathan Edwards AS yn bresennol. Aeth ati hefyd i annog pawb i lenwi’r arolwg Materion Gwledig

 

Cllr. Cefin Campbell reported that due to Welsh Government formula criteria, it is now anticipated that savings to the annual budget looks likely to amount to £12 million.  Budget calculations must indicate where savings are to be made. Council Tax could rise by 4.3%. The main budget meeting will take place in March 2018.

CCC are looking into setting up a new housing company “Arms Length Housing Company” offering grants to build houses, bring houses back into the rental market and to regenerate empty homes.  This will assist younger people in getting on to the housing ladder, offer housing to the homeless and injured armed forces personnel.

The Cwm Environmental project is about to expire and CCC will look into setting up a similar company.

Cllr. Campbell advised of a meeting he was chairing being held in Gelli Aur on 1st February covering matters regarding the future of the rural community.  In attendance would be Adam Price AM, Simon Thomas and Jonathon Edwards MP.  He also encouraged all to complete the Rural Affairs survey.

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.

17/15 MATERION YN CODI /  MATTERS ARISING

Cof/Min. 16/63  Hysbysiad o Gyfethol / Notice of Co-option

Roedd llythyr cais ar gyfer y swydd wag ar Ward y Gogledd wedi dod i law gan Mrs Beryl Jones, Derwenfawr. Roedd y llythyr wedi cael ei anfon at bob Cynghorydd cyfredol. 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.

 

Cof. / Min 16/65 (2) DATBLYGIADAU AMAETHYDDOL, LAN FARM, DERWEN-FAWR

/ AGRICULTURAL DEVELOPMENTS, LAN FARM, BROAD OAK

Roedd y Cyngor wedi dod i ddeall bod meddiannaeth Lan Farm bellach yn ansicr, felly cytunodd y cynghorwyr y byddai’n anodd mynd ar drywydd y mater ymhellach, ac felly penderfynwyd rhoi’r gorau i’r mater.

It had been established that the occupancy of Lan Farm was now uncertain and therefore councillors agreed that to pursue the matter further would be difficult and therefore it was decided to disband the matter.

Cof. / Min 16/65 (3)  HYSBYSFWRDD, DERWEN-FAWR / NOTICE BOARD, BROAD OAK

Cadarnhawyd gan y Loteri Genedlaethol bod cynnig grant amodol yn cael ei wneud ar gyfer y swm o £2,380 ar gyfer y prosiect “Diffibrilwyr Llangathen”.

Pwysleisiwyd na ddylai’r prosiect ddechrau tan fod y datganiad wedi’i lofnodi a’i ddychwelyd. Ar ôl i’r cynnig ddod i law, bydda’r Cyng. Moses a’r Clerc yn delio â’r dogfennau.

It had been confirmed by the National Lottery that a conditional grant offer was being made for the sum of £2,380 for the project “Llangathen Defibrillators”.

It was stressed that the project must not begin until the  declaration was signed and returned.  Once the offer is received, Cllr. Moses and the clerk would deal with the documentation.

17/18 ADRODDIAD Y CYNGHORYDD SIR / COUNTY COUNCILLORS REPORT

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.

4. Pant yn y ffordd y tu allan i Garej Mazda, Dryslwyn. Byddai’r Cyng. Campbell a’r Clerc yn gwneud ymholiadau.

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.

16/57 ADRODDIAD Y CYNGHORYDD SIR / COUNTY COUNCILLORS REPORT

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.
* £23m for small businesses to take advantage of digital manufacturing.

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.

Datganwyd buddiant gan y Cyng. L. Hughes yn eitem rhif 10 ar yr agenda, sef  hen adeilad yr GPO.

Cllr. L. Hughes declared an interest in agenda item 10, the old GPO building.

16/29 ADRODDIAD GAN SWYDDOG CYMORTH CYMUNEDOL YR HEDDLU/ REPORT BY PCSO

Roedd Swyddog Cymorth Cymunedol yr Heddlu (PCSO), Roger Anthony, yn bresennol yn y cyfarfod, a rhoddodd adroddiad ar faterion o fewn y gymuned.

Bu adroddiadau am ddwyn da byw, defaid a gwartheg. Roedd hyn yn bryder nid yn unig yn lleol, ond ledled holl ardal Heddlu Dyfed Powys.

Efallai y byddai’r Ffair Nadolig a oedd i gael ei chynnal yn Aberglasney, ynghyd ag Arddangosfa Gelf a oedd i gael ei chynnal yn Neuadd Llangathen, yn creu problemau o ran parcio, hyd yn oed gyda’r ddarpariaeth parcio a theithio. Felly, byddai’r parcio’n cael ei blismona a byddai conau’n cael eu trefnu i atal parcio anghydweithredol.

Trafodwyd cyflymder y traffig ar yr A40 ger Sgwâr Dryslwyn. Cytunodd PCSO Anthony fod hyn yn bryder, ond roedd y cyfyngiad cyflymder yn y lleoliad hwn yn 60 mya ac, er bod hyn yn cael ei ystyried yn rhy gyflym ar gyfer y fan hon, roedd yn anodd cymryd unrhyw gamau.

Fodd bynnag, cytunwyd y byddai trefniadau i gynnal cyfarfod safle yn fuddiol. Byddai’r cyfarfod hwn yn cynnwys Rhingyll yr Uned Plismona Ffyrdd, Pennaeth Trafnidiaeth Cyngor Sir Gâr, aelodau ac unrhyw asiantaethau eraill a allai gyfrannu at ffordd ymlaen o ran cynyddu diogelwch yn y fan hon. Byddai’r Cynghorydd Sir Cefin Campbell yn cysylltu â Phennaeth Trafnidiaeth Cyngor Sir Gâr, ac yna gellid gwneud trefniadau ar gyfer cynnal cyfarfod safle.

Soniwyd am ddigwyddiad anffodus iawn yn lleol, lle bu farw dyn yn dilyn tân mewn ty.

 

PCSO (Police Community Support Officer) Roger Anthony attended the meeting and reported on matters within the community.

There were reports of livestock thefts, sheep and cattle.  This was a concern not only locally but over the whole Dyfed/Powys force area.

The forthcoming Aberglasney Christmas Fair and an Art Exhibition to be held in Llangathen Hall may well create parking problems even with a park and ride provision.  Parking will therefore be policed and cones arranged to deter uncooperative parking.

The traffic speed at the Dryslwyn Square section of the A40 was discussed.  PCSO Anthony agreed that this was a concern but the speed limit at this  location is 60mph, although regarded as too fast for this spot, it was difficult to take any action.

However, it was agreed that arrangements for a site meeting would be beneficial. This would include the   Sergeant of the Road Policing Unit, Head of Transport CCC, members and any other agencies that may contribute to a way forward in increasing safety at this site.  County Cllr. Cefin Campbell would contact the Head of Transport, CCC and arrangements could then be put into place for the site meeting.

It was reported that a very unfortunate incident occurred locally whereby a gentleman died following a house fire.

16/30 COFNODION / MINUTES

Cynigiwyd gan Cyng. M. Wynne ac eiliwyd gan Cyng. C. Moses fod cofnodion y cyfarfod a gynhaliwyd ddydd Mawrth 20 Medi 2016 yn cael eu derbyn fel cofnod cywir o’r trafodion.

It was proposed by Cllr. M. Wynne  and seconded by Cllr. C. Moses that the minutes of the meeting held on Tuesday, 20th September 2016 be accepted as a correct record of proceedings.

 

Cynigiwyd gan Cyng. M. Williams ac eiliwyd gan Cyng. L. Hughes fod y cofnodion y cyfarfod arbennig a gynhaliwyd ddydd Mawrth 25 Hydref 2016 yn cael eu derbyn fel cofnod cywir o’r trafodion.

It was proposed by Cllr. M. Williams and seconded by Cllr. L. Hughes that the minutes of the extraordinary meeting held on Tuesday, 25th October 2016 be accepted as a correct record of proceedings.

16/31 MATERION YN CODI /  MATTERS ARISING

Cof. / Min 16/17 (1) A40 SGWAR DRYSLWYN SQUARE, DRYSLWYN

Roedd y clerc wedi cael hysbysiad gan Richard Morgan bod Llywodraeth Cymru wedi nodi y byddai copi o’r dyluniad yn cael ei anfon ymlaen unwaith y byddai Cam 1-2 yr Archwiliad Diogelwch Ffyrdd wedi cael ei gwblhau.

Gofynnwyd i’r clerc wneud ymholiad ynghylch amserlen yr archwiliad, yn ogystal â dyddiad cwblhau’r archwiliad.

The clerk had received a notification from Richard Morgan of the Welsh Government stating that a copy of the design would be forwarded once the Road Safety Audit Stage 1 – 2 has been completed.

It was requested that the clerk enquire as to what the timescale for completion of the audit is and an anticipated date of completion.

Cof. / Min 16/17 (2) DATBLYGIADAU AMAETHYDDOL, LAN FARM, DERWEN-FAWR / AGRICULTURAL DEVELOPMENTS, LAN FARM, BROAD OAK

Roedd Rosie Carmichael o Gyngor Sir Gâr wedi dweud ei bod yn dal i aros am ddiweddariad gan Lywodraeth Cymru, ac y byddai’n cysylltu â’r Llywodraeth unwaith eto.

Rosie Carmichael of CCC had advised that she was still awaiting an update from Welsh Government and would get in touch with them once again.

Cof. / Min 16/17 (4)  HYSBYSFWRDD, DERWEN-FAWR a LLOCHES BYSIAU, DRYSLWYN / NOTICE BOARD, BROAD OAK and BUS SHELTER, DRYSLWYN

Cadarnhaodd y Cyng. C. Moses fod y lloches fws yn Broad Oak wedi cael ei glanhau. Nid oedd yn hysbys a oedd y lloches fws yn Sgwâr Dryslwyn wedi cael ei glanhau.

Cytunwyd mai hysbysfwrdd pren artiffisial, maint 6 × A4 ar i fyny (maint arddangos 420 mm × 891 mm) a fyddai’r opsiwn gorau. Hefyd, pâr o byst pren i gynnal yr Hysbysfwrdd. Fodd bynnag, cafwyd trafodaeth lle awgrymwyd y gellid defnyddio ciosg ffôn BT fel safle gwybodaeth. Byddai’r Cyng. Moses yn ymchwilio i’r mater ac yn rhoi gwybod i’r clerc a fyddai angen archebu’r Hysbysfwrdd ai peidio.

Cllr. C. Moses confirmed that the bus shelter at Broad Oak had been cleaned. It was not known if the bus shelter at Dryslwyn Square had been cleaned.

It was agreed that a Man-made Timber notice board of a size 6 x A4 portrait (display size 420mm x891mm) be the best option. Also a pair of timber posts for mounting the Notice Board.  However, a discussion ensued whereby an idea to use the BT telephone kiosk as an information site.  Cllr. Moses would look into the matter and advise the clerk if it would be necessary or not to order the Notice Board.

Cof. / Min.  16/17 (5) DIFFIBRILIWR / DIFIBRILLATOR

Roedd y clerc wedi cael gwybod bod aelodau’r Siop Gymunedol yn ymchwilio i brisiau

The clerk had been advised that the Community Shop members were looking into prices.

Cof. / Min. 16/17 (6) ARHOSFAN BWS YN BROAD OAK / BUS SHELTER AT BROAD OAK

Roedd ymateb wedi dod i law gan Nicola Smith, Uwch Dechnegydd, Adran yr Amgylchedd, Is-adran y Priffyrdd a Thrafnidiaeth, Cyngor Sir Gâr. Yn anffodus, yn rhan o arbedion effeithlonrwydd Cyngor Sir Gâr, nid oedd cyllideb ar gael ar gyfer llochesau bws bellach, ac roeddent yn gwbl ddibynnol ar gyllid allanol (grantiau/cyfraniadau datblygwyr) i fynd i’r afael ag ymholiadau o’r fath. Fodd bynnag, cynhelid rhestr ar gyfer llochesau bws ac, os byddai cyfleoedd ariannu eraill yn codi yn y dyfodol, byddai cofnod wedi’i wneud o’r cais am loches fws yn Broad Oak (ar ochr y pentref – TRA40). Cytunodd y Cyng. C. Campbell i gysylltu â’r Swyddog Grantiau yng Nghyngor Sir Gâr ynglyn ag unrhyw gymorth a allai fod ar gael.

A reply from Nicola Smith, Senior Technician, Environment Department, Highways and Transport Division, CCC., had been received.  Unfortunately, as part of CCC’s efficiency savings, a budget is no longer held for bus shelters and they are wholly reliant on external funding (grants/developer contributions) to address such requests.  However, a list is held for bus shelters and in the event of alternative funding opportunities becoming available in the future, a record has been made of the request for a bus shelter at Broad Oak (on the village side – TRA40) .  Cllr. C. Campbell agreed to contact the Grant Officer at CCC for any assistance that may be available.

Cof. / Min. 16/17 (7) ARCHWILYDD MEWNOL / INTERNAL AUDITOR

Roedd y clerc wedi siarad â Mr David Morris, ac roedd yn cytuno â’r gofyniad newydd a nodwyd gan yr Archwilydd Allanol. Bellach, roedd angen i’r clerc bersonoli’r Llythyr Ymgysylltu enghreifftiol, a’i anfon ymlaen at Mr Morris i’w lofnodi.

The clerk had spoken to Mr David Morris and he was in agreement to the new requirements set out by the new External Auditor.  The clerk now needs to personalise the sample Letter of Engagement and forward to Mr Morris for signing.

Cof. / Min. 16/17 (8)  BONT RHWNG YR HAFOD A WERNDDU, CAPEL ISAAC / BRIDGE BETWEEN HAFOD AND WERNDDU, CAPEL ISAAC.

Y clerc i gysylltu â’r Cyng E. Morgan, a gofyn i gamau dilynol gael eu cymryd o ran glanhau’r bont.

The clerk to contact Cllr. E. Morgan and request that the matter of cleaning the bridge be followed up.

Cof. / Min. 16/17 (9)  BROAD OAK

Cadarnhaodd y Cyng. C. Moses fod y broblem yn ymwneud â dodrefn a baw cwn wedi cael ei datrys.

Cllr. C. Moses confirmed that the issues regarding furniture and dog mess had been dealt with.

Cof / Min 16/23 (1) Mynedfeydd Cudd / Concealed Entrances

Roedd y clerc wedi cael ateb gan John McEvoy, Cyngor Sir Gâr. Yn anffodus, dim ond arwyddion a oedd wedi’u cynnwys yn nogfen yr Adran Drafnidiaeth “Traffic Signs, Regulations and General Directions” yr oedd Cyngor Sir Gâr yn gallu eu gosod. Felly, gan nad oedd arwydd rhybudd ar gyfer mynedfa gudd yn y ddogfen reoliadol, ni ellid cydsynio â’r cais.

The clerk had received a reply from John McEvoy, CCC.  Unfortunately, CCC are only able to put up signs that are included in the Department for Transports document “Traffic Signs, Regulations and General Directions”.  Therefore, as there is no warning sign for concealed entrances in the regulatory document the request cannot be consented.

Cof. / Min. 16/17 (2) Arwyddion Gwartheg / Cattle Crossing A40

Roedd Asiantaeth Cefnffyrdd De Cymru (SWTRA) wedi cynghori bod Llywodraeth Cymru wedi cael gwybod am y cais am arwyddion gwartheg yn croesi ar yr A40. Roedd Llywodraeth Cymru wedi dweud wrth y clerc bod trefniadau ar waith i Asiant fonitro’r sefyllfa. Gofynnwyd i’r clerc gynghori Llywodraeth Cymru i gysylltu â’r Cyng. Hughes er mwyn bod yn ymwybodol o amserau croesi’r gwartheg, a pha mor aml roedd hynny’n digwydd.

The South Wales Road Agent (SWTRA) had advised that Welsh Government had been informed of the request for cattle crossing signs on the A40.  Welsh Government had informed the clerk that arrangements were in place for an Agent to monitor the situation.  The clerks was requested to advise WG to contact Cllr. Hughes in order to be aware of times and frequency of cattle crossing.

Cof. / Min. 16/17 (4) Perth wedi tyfu’n wyllt / Overgrown Hedge, Felindre, Dryslwyn

16/35 ADRODDIAD Y CYNGHORYDD SIR / COUNTY COUNCILLORS REPORT

Ymddiheurodd y Cyng. Cefin Campbell am beidio â bod yn bresennol yn y cyfarfodydd mwyaf diweddar, gan fod hyn o ganlyniad i ymrwymiadau gwaith.

Ailbwysleisiodd y Cyng. Campbell fwriad Cyngor Sir Gâr i sicrhau bod 1000 o gartrefi fforddiadwy ar gael dros y 5 mlynedd nesaf.

Bwriedid adeiladu 400 o gartrefi newydd, prynu o’r sector preifat, a chysylltu â pherchenogion tai gwag i gynnig prynu i ddiben rhentu.

Roedd y Cyng. Edward Thomas o Gyngor Tref Llandeilo wedi bod yn tynnu sylw at y lefelau uwch nag arfer o nitrogen deuocsid yn nhref Llandeilo, ac yn pwysleisio’r angen dirfawr am ffordd osgoi ar gyfer Llandeilo. Dywedwyd bod Adam Price, AC ar gyfer Dwyrain Caerfyrddin a Dinefwr, bellach yn cychwyn proses o flaenoriaethu’r ffordd osgoi arfaethedig.

Dywedodd y Cyng. Campbell wrth yr aelodau nad oedd eto wedi gwneud penderfyniad ynghylch cais cynllunio E/34266 – Uned Cywion Ieir Buarth i 32,000 o adar ym Mhentrefelin. Byddai’n gwneud penderfyniad pan fyddai’r holl adroddiadau ar gael – nid oedd adroddiad Cyfoeth Naturiol Cymru ar gael ar y pryd. Byddai’n ystyried y llwybrau traffig/mynediad/gadael o’r safle arfaethedig, a materion amgylcheddol, yn cynnwys effaith tail. Gan nad oedd ar bwyllgor cynllunio Cyngor Sir Gâr, ni fyddai’n cael cyfle i bleidleisio ar y mater, ond efallai y byddai’n cael cais i roi ei farn/adroddiad.

Roedd y clerc i anfon ymlaen at y Cyng. Campbell gopi o lythyr Cyngor Cymuned Llangathen a anfonwyd at Ceri Davies, Cyngor Sir Gâr.

Cllr. Cefin Campbell apologised for not being present at the most recent meetings as this was due to work commitments.

Cllr. Campbell re-iterated CCC’s  intention to make available 1000 affordable homes over the next 5 years.

It is planned to build 400 new homes, buy from the private sector and approach owners of empty houses to offer purchase for rental purposes.

Cllr. Edwards Thomas of Llandeilo Town Council has been drawing  attention to the higher that average nitrogen dioxide levels in Llandeilo town and emphasising the dire needs for a Llandeilo by-pass.    It was reported that Adam Price AM for Carmarthen East and Dinefwr is now initiating a prioritisation of the proposed by-pass.

Cllr. Campbell made it know to members that he had not yet made a decision regarding the planning application E/34266 – 32,000 Bird Free Range Chicken Unit at Pentrefelin.  He will do so once all reports have been made available – Natural Resource Wales report was not yet available.  He will consider the traffic/access/exit routes from the proposed site, environmental issues including the effect of manure.  As he is not on the planning committee of CCC, he will not have an opportunity to vote on the matter but my be asked to give an opinion/report.

The clerk is to forward a copy of the Llangathen Community Council letter that was sent to Ceri Davies, CCC., to Cllr. Campbell.

16/36 UNRHYW FATER ARALL / ANY OTHER BUSINESS
