Towy Valley residents will be able to have their say on the Llandeilo bypass this week.

It was announced in January 2017 that the Welsh Government will ask residents to decide on either a “refined” or the original route.

The refined route runs through gardens in Quay Street and along the bottom of properties in Church Street while the original route gives the town more of a wide berth.

Carmarthen East and Dinefwr AM Adam Price has received Welsh Government assurances that one route will be funded.

Llandeilo county councillor Edward Thomas urged residents from the town and Ffairfach to attend the consultation.

Cllr Thomas told The Guardian: “It is very important residents attend the consultation to give their views and express any concerns they have.

“The bypass concerns residents in Llandeilo and Ffairfach and we want as many people from the community at the consultation so they can look at plans and have their say.”

Towy Environment Group’s Simon Jones added: “Following a public consultation in 2006, the residents of Llandeilo and Ffairfach voted for the original route.

“There was some confusion at the time whether they were voting for the ‘possible’ realignment of the original route to become the refined route.

“The Welsh Government later announced that the refined route was now the preferred route.

“This took many residents by surprise as this was not what they necessarily voted for.

“I am urging all Llandeilo and Ffairfach residents to attend the meeting next week to share their views.”

The consultation is taking place at Llandeilo Civic Hall this Tuesday, February 13, from 2pm until 7pm.
