RESIDENTS of Myddynfych are gearing up to fight plans which threaten one of Ammanford’s last remaining greenfield sites.
They say they have been horrified by an application to build 16 houses at Lletyrdderwen – and town councillors have given them their backing.
A lot of new developments are springing up at Myddynfych as Ammanford continues to expand and inevitably encroach into these green sites.
But is this one housing application too far?
●ORGANISERS of Cwmaman Carnival, who just do not seem to be lucky with the weather, have our deepest sympathy.
They have had to postpone this year’s carnival until next month – and at this rate, other eventsmay followsuit.
Is it too much to hope for some reasonable weather on Saturday for Ammanford’s Big Day Out and the official opening of Garnant Family Centre’s fantastic Community Garden at Maes y Bedol?
Shane Williams is flying back from Japan for the ribbon-cutting ceremony, so let us sincerely hope the weather is kind!
●OF all local issues covered by the Guardian, dog fouling probably raises more complaints than any other.
County councillor Colin Evans has now spoken out about the “desecration” of the Riverside Walk by dog owners who toss doggy bags into the undergrowth.
The lack of bins along this scenic stretch has been raised before, so let us hope Cllr Deian Harries can address this long-running issue.
But would bins prove the solution? Not in the viewof Llandovery councillor Gill Wright, who recently expressed the opinion that “some dog owners just don’t give a damn”.
