21/15  MATERION YN CODI /  MATTERS ARISING

Cof/Min 20/53 (1)  A40 SGWAR DRYSLWYN SQUARE, DRYSLWYN /  BROAD OAK / DIOGELWCH Y FFYRDD / ROAD SAFETY – A40

Roedd ateb wedi dod i law gan Lywodraeth Cymru mewn perthynas â phryderon ynghylch llinellau gwyn wedi pylu ar gefnffordd yr A40. Roedd yn cadarnhau bod gwaith cynnal a chadw ac ailosod arwyneb wedi’i gynllunio ar gyfer y rhan honno o gefnffordd yr A40, a bod y gwaith yn amodol ar flaenoriaethu a’r cyllid a fyddai ar gael. Roedd gwaith hefyd wedi’i raglennu i unioni’r dirywiad lleol ac adnewyddu’r llinellau gwyn. Byddai’r gwaith yn cael ei wneud cyn gynted â phosibl, yn ddibynnol ar argaeledd contractwyr.

A reply had been received from Welsh Government regarding the concerns of faded white lines on the A40 trunk road.  They confirm that the section of the A40 trunk road is planned for resurfacing maintenance and is subject to prioritisation and available funding.  It is also programmed to rectify the localised deterioration and refresh the white lining.  Work to be carried out as soon as possible and is dependant upon contactor availability.

Cof/Min 20/53 (2)  ADEILAD CYFNEWIDFA BT/ BT EXCHANGE BUILDING, DRYSLWYN

Roedd cynrychiolydd o CBRE (Cyfleustodau) wedi cysylltu â’r clerc ynghylch Adeilad Cyfnewid BT, Dryslwyn. Dywedodd fod y rheiliau ar ffin y ffens i gael eu hatgyweirio. Cadarnhawyd yn y cyfarfod bod hyn wedi cael ei wneud. At hynny, dywedodd y gwr bonheddig ei fod wedi gwneud amcangyfrif o’r gwaith gofynnol – paentio, ail-blastro rhai mannau – ac y byddai’n anfon hwn ymlaen at BT i’w gymeradwyo. Ar ôl cael ei gymeradwyo, byddai’r gwaith yn cael ei wneud.

A representative of CBRE (Utilities) had contacted the clerk regarding the BT Exchange Building, Dryslwyn.  He advised that the railings on the fence boundary were to be repaired.  It was confirmed in the meeting that this had been done.  Also, the gentleman advised that he had calculated an estimate of the works required – painting, re-plaster areas – and would be forwarding this to BT for approval.  Once approval was granted, then the work would be completed.

Cof/Min 20/53 (3) ROAD CWMHARAD I/TO SARNAGOL

Nodwyd bod angen draen croesi newydd.  Mae’r ardal hon ar restr cynnal a chadw CSC

A new cross drain was called for at this location.  This area is on the CCC list for maintenance.

This area is on the CCC list for maintenance. 

Cof/Min 20/53 (7) SBWRIEL / LITTER

Roedd neges gan Swyddog Amgylchedd Lleol CSC yn cadarnhau bod y mater dan reolaeth. Roedd y gwasanaethau glanhau mewn cysylltiad â’u contractwr enwebedig a, phan fyddent yn gallu gwneud y gwaith, yna byddai angen rhoi trefniadau ar waith gyda’r adran rheoli traffig i sicrhau systemau gwaith diogel. Roedd archeb am arwyddion Dim Sbwriel wedi ei gyflwyno, a byddai’r arwyddion yn cael eu gosod yn yr ardal wedi iddynt gyrraedd.

A message from CCC Local Environment Officer confirmed that the matter was in hand.  Cleansing services were in contact with their nominated contractor and when they were able to carry out the work than arrangements would need to put in place with traffic management to ensure safe systems of work.  An order for No Littering signs have been placed and will be erected in the area once received.

 Cof/Min 20/53 (10)  FELINDRE, STREET LIGHTING

Mynegwyd pryder ynghylch y golau stryd unigol yn Felindre. Roedd y golau’n cael ei ddiffodd am tua 2am. Gofynnwyd i’r clerc gysylltu â CSC i ofyn am iddo gael ei adael ynghynn yn ystod y nos/yn gynnar yn y bore.

Concern was expressed with regard to the single street light in Felindre.  The light was being turned off at around 2am.  The clerk was asked to contact CCC to request that this be left on during the night/early morning.

Cof / Min 20/50  SWYDD WAG AR GYFER CYNGHORYDD/ COUNCILLOR VACANCY

Roedd y swydd wag wedi cael ei hysbysebu yn unol â chyfarwyddiadau CSC. Hyd hynny, nid oedd yr un ymateb swyddogol wedi dod i law, ond roedd un unigolyn wedi dangos diddordeb yn y swydd.
