Roedd angen gwneud gwerth £10 miliwn o arbedion ar wariant.

Funds have been made  available for a new scheme “Market Towns”.  This will provide assistance in order to promote these towns from Llandovery down to Whitland.

An all Wales report regarding parking fees has resulted in that they make no significant difference to people attending towns.  The revenue raised from these fees – £3 million – has been used to subsidise buses, highways etc.
