Seaside: A meeting will be held at the Selwyn Samuel Centre

RESIDENTS in Glanymor will have the opportunity to raise concerns about anti-social behaviour in Seaside with the council, police and elected representatives at a public meeting this week.

From 5.30pm on Thursday (Apr 18), representatives from the relevant authorities and the local MP, AM and county councillors will be in the Selwyn Samuel Centre to hear from local residents about the recent problems in the Seaside area and try to find some constructive solutions.

Cllr John Prosser, who represents Glanymor as a county councillor, said: “I promised residents I would arrange for residents to meet with the MP, AM, County Councillors, Town councillors, county council officers, the police and other interested parties to discuss the issues in Seaside.

“We are already working with various groups within the Glanymor ward, and whilst there is no easy fix I believe we can improve the area if we all work together. The meeting is open to everyone in the Glanymor community, and I would encourage as many people as possible to join us on Thursday so that we can try to influence the decision-making process.”

Nia Griffith MP added: “Seaside is a very stable and close-knit community where residents take a real pride in their area. It is totally unacceptable that a handful of individuals should be allowed to make their neighbours lives a misery.

“I am calling on all the relevant authorities to use their powers to the full to stamp out anti-social behaviour. To that end, I welcome measures such as the imposition of an order on a particular property limiting the number of visitors, as a way to help restore respect for the neighbours.

“But we need sustained efforts to drive home the message that we will not tolerate any anti-social behaviour in Seaside, and to make sure that all residents can enjoy their lives in peace and quiet.”

Lee Waters AM added: “Anti-social behaviour from a small minority of people can have a devastating effect on our communities. And there is no simple solution.

“Nia Griffith and I, along with County Councillors John Prosser and Louvain Roberts, have been meeting regularly with residents, council officers and the police to tackle this issue, and we’re holding a public meeting to give everyone the opportunity to raise their concerns.”

    Councillors Louvain Roberts and Councillor Sean Rees has. and this meeting is an ad hoc meeting by Labour. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=2028534530788585&set=a.1389924857982892&type=3&theater

    LABOUR chasing votes again an photos in the papers. Like closing the stable door after the horse has bolted. Amanda Carter has this in hand with the next public meeting with the police commissioner Dafydd Llewellyn and Cllr Sean Rees and Cllr Louvain Roberts (Now not Labour but Independent) with the backing of the community from the first public meeting. If Cllr Prosser had the decency to engage with the community he would know.
    He is now Jumping on the bandwagon and undermining the community’s meeting, It is not only disrespectful but it shows contempt for the good work these two Independent Councillors and Amanda who have engaged with the community at Seaside Social club, by being active with the residents and the wider community.

    NO. this one Councillor with Labour as it looks ,just want to be seen jumping into the driving seat once again with an MP and with an AM. possibly for votes.

    Seriously, Credit where it is due and that is with the community engagement from the first meeting and with the follow up and continuity with the police at the next community meeting. Not this ad hoc meeting that is set aside away from the Glan Y Mor ward Ward, Away from the residents and tenants there.

    This is just seen by real voters as a Political propaganda for Labour to bee seen good, a strive for votes and media attention. It is so disappointing they have not got the respect and ability to engage. To go out and plan to undermine the good work that is already in progress is disgraceful. Shame on you

Llanelli: Stop notice issued for school planning application

A CONTROVERSIAL planning application for a new 480-spaced school in Llanelli has been issued a stop notice by the Welsh Government.
Carmarthenshire County Council is proposing to build a new £9.1m school on Llanerch Fields in Llanelli and were looking to determine the planning application in the coming weeks. Welsh Government will now decide whether to call in the application or not.
The new school would accommodate 420 primary and 60 nursery pupils, set over two floors with larger classrooms with integrated IT facilities, a multi-purpose hall and specialist provision for pupils with additional learning needs.
Over recent years there has been much debate in the area on the choice of site for the new school with campaigners arguing that they support a new school, but object against Llanerch fields being built upon. Last year an attempt to get the land designated as a village green was turned down.
In 2017, Ysgol Dewi Sant as the first Welsh medium primary school to be provided by a local authority celebrated its 70th birthday.
Councillor Rob James, local member for Lliedi, stated “From day one I have raised concerns that the Council’s site choice and planning process opened the Council up to the possibility of the Welsh Government calling in the planning application. It is clear that these concerns were not misplaced and there is now a really chance that it will be. 

“As a local Councillor, a school governor and a parent, I am passionate about the need for a new school for the pupils of Ysgol Dewi Sant and it is important that local pupils get the benefits of a 21st century school.
“I will now be working with Council Officers to ensure that contingency plans are prepared in case the Welsh Government state that the planning application does not comply with national planning policy.
“I will also work with parents, pupils, residents and interested parties are able to engage with the Welsh Government during this process.”

CONSUMERS could get back money they have lost as a result of their dealings with a failed regulated firm in Llanelli, Carmarthenshire. The firm is Hayden Williams Independent Financial Services Limited formerly Assura Protect, Room 1, 7 Meadows Bridge, Parc Menter, Cross Hands, Llanelli, Carmarthenshire, Wales SA14 6RA.

The firm was declared in default in June 2019 by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).

FSCS is the UK’s statutory compensation scheme that protects customers of authorised financial services firms that carry out certain regulated activities. A declaration of default means FSCS is satisfied a firm is unable to pay claims for compensation made against it. This paves the way for customers of that firm to make a claim for compensation with FSCS.

Alex Kuczynski, Chief Corporate Affairs Officer at FSCS, said: “FSCS steps in to protect consumers around the UK when authorised financial services firms go bust. This vital service, which is free to consumers, protects deposits, insurance, investments, home finance and debt management. We want anyone who believes they may be owed money as a result of their dealings with this firm to get in touch, as we may be able to help you.”

Since it began in 2001, FSCS has helped more than 4.5m people, paying out more than £26bn in compensation.

If you wish to make a claim with FSCS against Hayden Williams Independent Financial Services Limited, you may be able to do so using FSCS’s online claims service at https://claims.fscs.org.uk Or you can contact its Customer Services Team on 0800 678 1100 or 020 7741 4100
