Dafen Pond, Sunday morning 22/02/15 (Before the rain came in).
So why do people think it's alright to do this??
Share this if this kind of behaviour makes you angry.
Llanelli Rural Council would like your views on local matters that are important to you.
What is it like living in the wider Llanelli area? What are your hopes for the future? What needs to change? How can we help tackle the big issues at the local level?
These are some of the questions being put to people living and working in the Dafen, Llwynhendy, Bynea, Felinfoel, Glyn, Hengoed and Swiss Valley areas through an online survey and a series of community workshops. The objective is to use the comments and suggestions gained from the survey and workshops to produce a “ place plan” which will identify a set of key actions the Llanelli Rural Council will address in conjunction with other partners and local groups. The initiative is part of a wider ongoing “national conversation” “The Wales We want” which will set national goals for the sort of Wales we hope to live in by 2050. Local people won’t have to wait that long for local changes though as the Rural Council plans to take action on the plan as soon as it’s finalised in April.
“I would encourage as many people as possible to complete the survey or attend a workshop as we need to get a good cross-section of views on what’s important to change locally” said Councillor Lindy Butler, Chairman of the Llanelli Rural Council.
The Llanelli Rural Council area survey is available to complete on line at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/llanelliruralareasurvey

People are to be asked their views on new orders for controlling dogs in public places in Carmarthenshire.
A report is going before the council’s Environmental and Public Protection Scrutiny Committee outlining the new powers under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.
An extensive public consultation exercise is to be carried out to get residents views on the Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPOs).
These PSPOs replace former Dog Control Orders which were previously being considered under the Clean Neighbourhoods Act.
The council will be consulting on:
“As a result, we will now be consulting with the public again on the new PSPOs asking them to consider a range of potential options that seek to balance the needs of the public against that of dog owners.
“It may be the case that not all of these orders are supported and we only introduce one or two of them; or we look again at them in the future.”
The council will be seeking the views of residents as well as town and community councils and other interested parties such as The Kennel Club.
Director of Environment Christina Harrhy said: “A number of new powers have been created under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 to address the problem of irresponsible dog ownership. Some replace existing powers while others are new.
“These new orders are designed to give greater flexibility in tackling irresponsible dog owners and we will be consulting with the public on the range of powers available to find out if any of these are suitable for Carmarthenshire.
“Ultimately however, these powers should not pose a problem for responsible dog owners.”
Further details on the consultation will be provided in due course.
