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.

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

4.   Cafwyd sylwadau am hen adeilad y Swyddfa Bost Gyffredinol ar yr A40 gyferbyn â Caeaunewydd. Roedd yr adeilad wedi’i orchuddio ag iorwg, ac roedd golwg anniben arno. Y clerc i ysgrifennu at berchennog y tir i ofyn a fyddai’n ystyried dymchwel yr adeilad.

Comments had been made regarding the old GPO building sited along the A40 opposite Caeaunewydd.  The building is covered in ivy and is of an unkempt appearance. The clerk to write to the land owner to ascertain if he would consider demolishing the building.

Darparodd y Cynghorydd Sir, Cefin Campbell, wybodaeth am brosiect y Llwybr Beicio a fydd, ar ôl ei gwblhau, yn rhedeg ar hyd yr hen reilffordd o Gaerfyrddin i Ffairfach. Mae cyllid wedi’i sicrhau ac mae’r gwaith wedi dechrau. Bydd cymal cyntaf y cynllun yn canolbwyntio ar Gaerfyrddin i Nantgaredig, wedyn Nantgaredig i Gelli Aur ac yna’n olaf Gelli Aur i Ffairfach.  Rhagwelir y bydd y prosiect wedi’i gwblhau erbyn 2018, cyhyd ag y bydd popeth yn mynd yn iawn.  Bu achosion o brynu gorfodol ar gyfer y llwybr, fodd bynnag, mae rhai ffermwyr/perchenogion tir/pysgotwyr wedi gwrthwynebu’r cynlluniau.

Mae Cyngor Sir Gâr ar fin lansio cynllun newydd cyffrous a fydd yn darparu £2 filiwn ar gyfer prosiectau i hyrwyddo cefn gwlad. Bydd gofyn i ymgeiswyr fodloni meini prawf penodol, ac un ohonynt fydd y gofyniad i brosiectau greu swyddi newydd

County Councillor Cefin Campbell provided information on the Cycle Track project which when completed will run along the disused rail track from Carmarthen to Ffairfach.  Funds have been made available and the work has commenced.  The first stage of the scheme will be from Carmarthen to Nantgaredig, followed by Nantgaredig to Golden Grove and finally Golden Grove to Ffairfach.  It is anticipated that the project will be completed by 2018 subject to all going according to plan.  There have been compulsory purchases made for the track, however, some farmers/land owners/fishermen have opposed the plans. 

An exciting new scheme is due to be launched by CCC and this will provide £2 million on projects to promote the countryside. Applicants will require to fulfil certain criteria, one of which will be that projects must create jobs.

15/42 MATERION YN CODI /  MATTERS ARISING

Cof. / Min 15/31 (2) A40 SGWAR DRYSLWYN SQUARE, DRYSLWYN

Roedd y clerc wedi cael ymateb gan Edwina Hart AC. Mae’n cynghori, yn dilyn yr Adolygiad o Ddiogelwch Cefnffyrdd a gyflawnwyd yr haf diwethaf, fod y gwelliannau ar gyfer y lleoliad hwn yn cynnwys cynnig i wella’r arwyddion a’r marciau ffordd.

Mae’n mynd ymlaen i gynghori bod data ynghylch anafiadau personol yn dilyn gwrthdrawiadau’n cael eu casglu gan yr holl heddluoedd yng Nghymru, ac yn cael eu cyflwyno i’w hadran yn rheolaidd.

Cafodd y lleoliad ei adolygu yn 2013 fel rhan o astudiaeth ddiogelwch ehangach, ac felly, roedd y swyddogion yn ymwybodol o’r problemau yn y lleoliad hwn.

The clerk had received a reply from Edwina Hart AM.  She advises that following the update to the Trunk Road Safety Review undertaken last summer, improvements at this location include a proposal to improve the signage and road markings.

She goes on to advise that personal injury collision data is collated by all police forces in Wales and submitted to her department regularly.

The location was reviewed in 2013 as part of a wider safety study and therefore officials were aware of the issues at this location.

Cof. / Min 15/31 (3) DATBLYGIADAU AMAETHYDDOL, LAN FARM, DERWEN-FAWR

/ AGRICULTURAL DEVELOPMENTS, LAN FARM, BROAD OAK

Gan nad oedd unrhyw wybodaeth wedi dod i law gan Rosie Carmichael, Cyngor Sir Caerfyrddin, gofynnwyd i’r clerc gysylltu â hi am ddiweddariad ynghylch y sefyllfa.

As no information has been received from Rosie Carmichael, CCC., the clerk was asked to contact her for an update on the situation.

Cof. / Min 15/31 (4) ARWYNEB Y FFORDD, SIOP GYMUNEDOL DRYSLWYN / ROAD SURFACE,DRYSLWYN COMMUNITY SHOP

Dywedodd y Cyng. Morgan ei fod yn aros am ymateb gan BT. Gwirfoddolodd i fynd ar drywydd y mater.

Cllr. Morgan advised that he was awaiting a reply from BT. He volunteered to follow up the matter.

Cof. / Min 15/31 (6) BUDDIANT AELODAU / MEMBERS INTEREST

Roedd y clerc wedi trafod y mater ynghylch Buddiant Aelodau ag Un Llais Cymru. Bydd angen i aelod lenwi a llofnodi ffurflen Datganiad o Fuddiant Aelodau pan fydd mater y mae ganddo fuddiant ynddo yn codi.  Yna bydd angen arddangos y ffurflen hon ar wefan Llangathen a’i ffeilio’n ddiogel. Unwaith yn unig y mae angen llofnodi’r ffurflen ond, byddai’n arfer da nodi’r mater yn y cofnodion bob tro y mae’n codi mewn cyfarfod.

The clerk had discussed the matter regarding Members Interest with One Voice Wales.  A Declaration of Members Interest form will need to be completed and signed by a member when a matter in which they have an interest in occurs.  This form will then need to be displayed on the Llangathen website and filed for safe keeping.  The form need only be signed once but for the matter to be noted in the minutes each time the subject occurs in a meeting would be good practise.

Cof. / Min 15/31 (7)  HYSBYSFWRDD, DERWEN-FAWR a LLOCHES BYSIAU, DRYSLWYN / NOTICE BOARD, BROAD OAK and BUS SHELTER, DRYSLWYN

I’w hadolygu yn y cyfarfod nesaf.

15/47 ADRODDIAD Y CYNGHORYDD SIR / COUNTY COUNCILLORS REPORT

Dywedodd y Cynghorydd Sir Cefin Campbell y byddai’r Dreth Gyngor yn 3.85%.

Roedd pryder wedi’i mynegi bod 1000 o bobl ifanc yn gadael y sir bob blwyddyn, yn bennaf gan nad ydynt yn gallu fforddio prynu eu tai eu hunain. Bellach, mae’n fwriad gan y Cyngor i adeiladu/darparu 1000 o dai fforddiadwy dros y pum mlynedd nesaf – 200 y flwyddyn. Byddai hyn yn cael ei gyflawni trwy adeiladu tai newydd fforddiadwy, adnewyddu tai gwag, prynu tai o’r sector preifat, yn enwedig yn yr ardaloedd hynny lle mae’r angen mwyaf. Darparu rhagor o dai cyngor a chynnig system morgais sy’n cael ei rannu.

O ran y cynnig Hawl i Brynu, sydd ar waith ar hyn o bryd, y gobaith yw y byddai mwy o dai yn cael eu cadw at ddibenion rhent.

Yn dilyn gostyngiad o 1% yng nghyllideb Llywodraeth Cymru, mae wedi dod i’r amlwg y bydd cyllideb yr ysgolion yn aros yn niwtral dros y flwyddyn nesaf.

County Councillor Cefin Campbell advised that the Council Tax increase would be 3.85%.

Concern had been expressed that 1000 young people leave the county each year largely due to not being able to afford the purchase of their own home.  It is now the Councils intention to build/provide 1000 affordable homes over the next five years – 200/year.  This would be concluded by building new affordable homes, bringing empty houses back into use, buying homes from the private sector, especially in areas where most needed.  Supplying more council houses and offering the system of shared mortgage.

With regard to the Right to Buy offer currently in force it is hoped that more houses would be kept for rent purposes.

Following the Welsh Government budget reduction of 1%, it has emerged that the schools budget would be cash neutral over the next year.

15/48  CYMORTH/RHODDION ARIANNOL / FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE / DONATIONS

Rhoddwyd rhestr o sefydliadau a oedd yn gofyn am gymorth ariannol i’r aelodau. Yn dilyn trafodaeth, penderfynwyd rhoi arian i’r canlynol:

A list of organisations requesting financial assistance was issued to members.  After discussion, it was resolved to donate funds to the following:

  • Neuadd Llangathen Village Hall £500.00
  • Menter Bro Dinefwr  £80.00
  • Cylch Meithrin/Ti a Fi (Cwrt Henri) £500.00
  • CFfI Sir Gâr/Carmarthenshire YFC £100.00
  • Ambiwlans Awyr Cymru/Wales Air Ambulance £100.00
  • Y Lloffwr £200.00
  • Ysgol Cwrt Henri £100.00
  • Radio Glangwili £200.00

Y clerc i drefnu i’r sieciau gael eu hanfon i’r sefydliadau perthnasol.

The clerk to arrange for the cheques to be forwarded to the relevant organisations.

15/49 UNRHYW FATER ARALL / ANY OTHER BUSINESS

1. Nodwyd bod llawer o sbwriel yn cael ei daflu ar ymyl y ffordd gan  Sgwar Dryslwyn i Sgwar Miltwn a hefyd o Sgwar Dryslwyn i pentref Cwrt Henri. Y clerc i adrodd.

It was noted that much litter was being strewn on the verges from Dryslwyn Square to Milton Square and also from Dryslwyn Square to Court Henry village.  The clerk to report.

2.  Tynnwyd sylw’r cyngor at y ffaith bod tipio anghyfreithlon wedi digwydd yn y coetir gerllaw . Y clerc i adrodd.

It was brought to the councils attention that fly tipping had occurred in the woodland area near Berllan Dywyll, Llangathen. The clerk to report.

3.  Roedd y clerc wedi cael galwad ffôn gan un o drigolion Broad Oak yn holi ynghylch Gorchmynion Gwarchod Coed yn y pentref. Roedd y clerc wedi rhoi’r wybodaeth berthnasol.

The clerk had received a telephone call from a Broad Oak resident enquiring about Tree Preservation Orders (TPO) in the village.  The clerk had supplied the required information.

 DATE OF NEXT MEETING

Penderfynwyd y byddai cyfarfod nesaf Cyngor Cymuned Llangathen ynghyd â Cyfarfod Cyffredinol Blynyddol yn cael ei gynnal ddydd Mawrth 17 Mai 2016 yn yr Ystafell Ddarllen, Cwrt-henri am

It was proposed by Cllr. M. Wynne and seconded by Cllr. M. Williams that the minutes of the meeting held on Tuesday, 17th November 2015 be accepted as a correct record of proceedings.

15/31 MATERION YN CODI /  MATTERS ARISING

Cof. / Min 15/22 (1)

Y BLOC STABLAU YN Y CAE GER RHYDYRAFON/GLANDDU, DERWEN-FAWR / STABLE BLOCK IN FIELD NEAR RHYD YR AFON / GLANDDU, BROAD OAK

Nodwyd bod y lloches cae yn y lleoliad uchod bellach wedi’i symud.

It was noted that the field shelter that was sited at the above location has now been removed.

Cof. / Min 15/22 (2) A40 SGWAR DRYSLWYN SQUARE, DRYSLWYN

Roedd y clerc wedi cael neges e-bost gan y Cynghorydd Cysylltiadau Cwsmeriaid yng Nghanolfan Gwasanaethau Cyhoeddus Heddlu Dyfed-Powys. Roedd yr ohebiaeth yn mynegi pryder y gallai’r mater hwn, o bosibl, fod wedi cael ei gamgyfleu. Roedd y cynghorwyr wedi cael braw nad oedd gwybodaeth bwysig yn cael ei throsglwyddo i Edwina Hart, gan olygu, felly, nad oedd darlun eglur, cyflawn o’r sefyllfa yn cael ei roi. Oherwydd methiant amlasiantaethol i adrodd ac i drosglwyddo gwybodaeth hollbwysig i’r awdurdodau perthnasol, roedd yn ymddangos y gallai oedi yn y gwaith o weithredu mesurau diogelwch fod wedi achosi mwy o ddamweiniau yn y lleoliad, gyda rhai ohonynt, o bosibl, wedi arwain at farwolaethau.

Gofynnwyd i’r clerc gysylltu ag Edwina Hart eto, gan drosglwyddo’r neges e-bost gan y Ganolfan Gwasanaethau Cyhoeddus, a oedd yn mynegi dryswch ynglyn â pha adroddiad y gallai’r gweinidog fod yn cyfeirio ato. Gofynnwyd i’r clerc hefyd fynegi pryder nad oedd gwybodaeth bwysig, o bosibl, wedi cael ei throsglwyddo, ac i ofyn i gynllun gweithredu addas a manylion cyswllt gael eu rhannu fel y gellid sicrhau bod yr holl wybodaeth yn cael ei choladu i alluogi penderfyniadau pwysig i gael eu gwneud.

The clerk had received an e-mail from the Customer Relations Advisor, Public Service Bureau, Dyfed Powys Police. The correspondence expresses concern that there may have been miscommunication on this matter.  Councillors were alarmed that important information was not being forwarded to Edwina Hart and therefore a clear, full picture of the situation was not being portrayed.    It appears that due to a multi agency failure in reporting and passing on crucial information to the relevant authorities, a delay in the carrying out of safety measures may have caused further accidents at this location, some possibly  resulting in fatalities.

The clerk was asked to contact Edwina Hart again, passing on the e-mail from the Public Service Bureau, in which it states confusion as to what report the minister may be referring to.  Also, to express concern that important information may not have been passed on and request that a suitable action plan and contact details be shared so that it is ensured that all information is collated to enable important decisions to be made.

Cof. / Min 15/22 (3) DATBLYGIADAU AMAETHYDDOL, LAN FARM, DERWEN-FAWR / AGRICULTURAL DEVELOPMENTS, LAN FARM, BROAD OAK

Nid oedd unrhyw wybodaeth wedi dod i law gan Rosie Carmichael, CSC.

I’w adolygu yn y cyfarfod nesaf.

No information has been received from Rosie Carmichael, CCC.

To review at the next meeting.

Cof. / Min 15/22 (4) ARWYNEB Y FFORDD, SIOP GYMUNEDOL DRYSLWYN /ROAD SURFACE,DRYSLWYN COMMUNITY SHOP

Roedd Cyng. E. Morgan wedi archwilio’r safle. Roedd yn ymddangos mai gwaith BT yn cloddio’r arwyneb wrth osod ceblau band llydan oedd wedi achosi’r pant. Roedd yn bosibl bod y gwarantiad dwy flynedd y mae BT yn ei gynnig bellach wedi dod i ben.  Fodd bynnag, roedd Cyng. Morgan wedi rhoi gwybod am y mater. I’w adolygu yn y cyfarfod nesaf.

Cllr. E. Morgan had inspected the site.  It appears that the depression in the road surface is due to BT having excavated the surface whilst laying Broadband lines.  It is possible that the two year warranty that BT offer may now have expired.  However, Cllr. Morgan has reported this matter.  To review at the next meeting.

Cof. / Min 15/27 (1) CYFETHOL CYNGHORWYR / CO-OPTION OF COUNCILLORS

Wedi gwirio’r cofnodion, roedd y Cynghorwyr canlynol wedi’u cyfethol ar y Cyngor:

Having checked records, the following Councillors have been co-opted onto the Council:

Cyng. / Cllrs. H. James, Cllr. M. Wynne, C. Moses and Cllr. S. Collins.

Byddai’r clerc yn trefnu bod yr wybodaeth hon yn cael ei harddangos ar y wefan.

The clerk will arrange for this information to be displayed on the website.

Cof. / Min 15/27 (2) BUDDIANT AELODAU / MEMBERS INTEREST

Roedd y ddogfennaeth berthnasol mewn perthynas â’r uchod wedi cael ei hanfon ymlaen at y clerc trwy Un Llais Cymru. Fodd bynnag, roedd bellach wedi dod i’r amlwg nad oedd hyn yn ofyniad ar gyfer Cynghorau Cymuned. Byddai’r clerc yn cysylltu ag Un Llais Cymru i gael eglurder.

The relevant documentation regarding the above had been forwarded to the clerk via One Voice Wales.  However, it had now come to light that it was not a requirement for Community Councils.  The clerk would contact OVW and seek clarity.

Cof. / Min 15/27 (4 and 5)  HYSBYSFWRDD, DERWEN-FAWR a LLOCHES BYSIAU, DRYSLWYN / NOTICE BOARD, BROAD OAK and BUS SHELTER, DRYSLWYN

I’w hadolygu yn y cyfarfod nesaf.

To review at the next meeting.

15/32 POLICY IAITH CYMRAEG / WELSH LANGUAGE POLICY

Roedd y clerc wedi cael costau ynglyn â chyfieithu’r cofnodion. Roedd y rhain yn seiliedig ar £40/1000 o eiriau – 0.04c/gair. Penderfynwyd bwrw ati i ddarparu’r cofnodion yn ddwyieithog. Cynigiwyd gan y Cyng. M. Wynne ac eiliwyd gan y Cyng. H. James fod polisi’r Gymraeg yn cael ei ddiwygio yn unol â hynny.

Arwyddwyd y polisi, fel sy’n briodol, gan y Cyng. H. James i gadarnhau hyn. Gofynnwyd i’r clerc roi gwybod i Gomisiynydd y Gymraeg am y penderfyniad.

The clerk had received costings regarding the translation of the minutes.  These were based on £40 / 1000 words – 0.04p/ word.  It was decided to proceed with producing the minutes bilingually.  It was proposed by Cllr. M. Wynne and seconded my Cllr. H. James that the Welsh Language policy be amended accordingly.

Cllr. H. James, duly signed the policy to confirm this.  The clerk was requested to advise the Welsh Language Commissioner of the decision.

15/33 GOHEBIAETH / CORRESPONDENCE

Cafodd yr eitemau canlynol o ohebiaeth eu cyflwyno i’r cyngor a’u trafod/nodi, fel sy’n briodol:

Eitem 8, gan Paul Williams, Califfornia. Roedd neges e-bost ddymunol wedi dod i law gan Paul Williams, yn gofyn am gymorth i ymchwilio i’w linach. Gofynnwyd i’r clerc ateb neges Mr Williams, gan roi iddo gyfeiriadau gwefannau Cymdeithas Hanes Teuluoedd Dyfed a Gwasanaeth Archifau Sir Gaerfyrddin, ac i ddweud hefyd y byddai ei ddogfen yn cael ei throsglwyddo i Mr D. T. Davies o Ddryslwyn, yn y gobaith y gallai fod ganddo wybodaeth. Os byddai Mr Williams yn cymeradwyo hynny, byddai’r wybodaeth yn cael ei hychwanegu at wefan y Gymuned fel y gallai’r rhai sydd â diddordeb helpu.

Item 8, from Paul Williams, California.  A pleasant e-mail had been received from Paul Williams requesting help in his research of his ancestry. The clerk was requested to reply to Mr Williams, providing the website addresses of Dyfed Family History Society and the Carmarthenshire Archive Services and to advise that his document would be passed on to Mr D. T. Davies of Dryslwyn in the hope that he may have some information.  Subject to Mr Williams’ approval, the information will be added to the Community website so that interested parties may help.

15/36 ADRODDIAD Y CYNGHORYDD SIR / COUNTY COUNCILLORS REPORT

Rhoddodd y Cynghorydd Sir, Cefin Campbell, adroddiad ar y toriadau i’r gyllideb, a oedd yn cael eu cyfrifo ar y pryd. Yr oeddid wedi rhag-weld y byddai cyllideb Llywodraeth Cymru yn cael ei thorri 4%, ond daeth i’r amlwg y byddai’r toriad yn 1%.  Fodd bynnag, wrth gyfrifo toriadau dros gyfnod o 3 blynedd, rhagwelid y byddai hyn yn cael ei ddilyn gan doriad o 4 – 5% i’r gyllideb.

Cyflwynodd y Cyng. Campbell wybodaeth am yr asedau yn Sir Gaerfyrddin yr oeddid yn ystyried eu trosglwyddo ar y pryd. Nid oedd hyn yn rhywbeth a fyddai’n effeithio ar blwyf Llangathen, ac yn wir, ar y pryd, roedd tua hanner y parciau/caeau chwarae yn Sir Gaerfyrddin yn cael eu rhedeg gan bwyllgorau neu glybiau.

Roedd yn bosibl y byddai siroedd yn cyfuno, ac y byddid yn gweld yr hen Ddyfed yn dychwelyd.

O ran y gronfa wrth gefn o £70 miliwn yn Sir Gaerfyrddin, roedd awgrym wedi’i wneud y byddai buddsoddiad cyfalaf o £20 miliwn yn gallu creu swyddi. Fodd bynnag, roedd hyn yn cael ei drafod.

Roedd y Morlyn Llanw yn Abertawe yn cael ei archwilio. Byddai cymeradwyo’r prosiect hwn yn sicrhau cyfleoedd gwaith byrdymor a hirdymor.

County Councillor Cefin Campbell reported on the budget reductions that were currently being calculated.  It was anticipated that the Welsh Government budget would be reduced by 4% but it has emerged that the reduction will be by 1%.  However, when calculating cuts over a 3 year period, then a 4 – 5% anticipated budget cut would be followed.

Cllr. Campbell advised on the asset transfers that were now being considered in Carmarthenshire.  This is not something that effects Llangathen parish and indeed approximately half of the parks/playing fields in Carmarthenshire are currently being run by committees or clubs.

It is possible that counties will merge and we will see the return of Dyfed

With regard to the £70 million reserve in Carmarthenshire, is has been suggested that a capital investment of £20 million  could create jobs.  However, this is being debated.

The Tidal Lagoon in Swansea is being examined.  The approval of this project would provide short term and long term job opportunities.

15/37 GOFYNIAD PRAESEPT /  PRECEPT REQUIREMENT 2016 / 2017

Gofynnwyd am ofyniad praesept 2016/2017 gan Gyngor Sir Gâr.

Roedd manylion am gostau “Goleuadau Troetffyrdd” ar gyfer y flwyddyn ariannol wedi dod i law, sef £1668.98 (£1390.82 + £278.16 TAW), a hefyd fanylion am Derfyn Gwariant Adran 137 ar gyfer 2016/17 – sef £7.42 yr etholwr. Roedd 407 o etholwyr yn y plwyf.

Rheoliadau Awdurdodau Lleol (Cyfrifo Sylfaen Treth Gyngor) (Cymru) 1995: y ffigur ar gyfer 2016/17 oedd 256.31

Trafodwyd a rhoddwyd ystyriaeth i’r gwariant a amcangyfrifir ar gyfer y flwyddyn ariannol nesaf.

Penderfynwyd na ddylid cynyddu’r gofyniad praesept ar gyfer 2016/17 ac y byddai’n aros ar £7,000.

Yn unol â hynny, arwyddwyd 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 2016 / 2017 was requested by Carmarthenshire County Council.

Details of “Footway Lighting” charges for the financial year had been received, £1668.98 (£1390.82 + £278.16 VAT)  and also details of Section 137 Expenditure Limit for 2016/17 – this being £7.42 per elector. There being 407 electors within the parish.

The Local Authorities (Calculation of Council Tax Base ( (Wales) Regulations 1995, the figure for 2016/17 being 256.31

Estimated expenditure for the coming financial year was discussed and considered.

It was resolved that the precept requirement for 2016/17 should not be increased and will remain at £7,000.

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

15/38 UNRHYW FATER ARALL / ANY OTHER BUSINESS

1.  Trafodwyd gwefan y gymuned, ac ystyriwyd y byddai o fudd i’r gymuned petai’n cael ei datblygu ymhellach. Byddai digwyddiadau, lluniau ac ati yn cael eu cynnwys arni, a gobeithid y byddai aelodau’r gymuned yn helpu i ddarparu deunydd.

1.  The Community website was discussed and it was considered to be in the interest of the community to develop this further.  Events, photographs etc to be included and it is hoped that members of the community would assist in providing material.

DYDDIAD Y CYFARFOD NESAF / DATE OF NEXT MEETING

Penderfynwyd y byddai cyfarfod nesaf Cyngor Cymuned Llangathen yn cael ei gynnal ddydd Mawrth 15 Mawrth 2016 yn yr Ystafell Ddarllen, Cwrt-henri am

It was resolved that the next meeting of Llangathen Community Council would be held on Tuesday,  15th March 2016 at the Reading Room, Court Henry at 7.30pm.

15/26 COUNTY COUNCILLORS REPORT

County Councillor C. Campbell reported that the County Council were looking to make financial reductions to the sum of £40 million and  seminars were arranged in order to decide where these cuts could be made.  It looked likely that the education budget would be reduced by £15 million which would result in each school within the county having a lower  allocation of funds.  Final decisions are expected in February.
