After a successful campaign by the CUSC and a motion brought by Councillor Emlyn Dole, full council voted to have this proposal scrapped. The Executive Board agreed to consult with all users of their facilities.
With a reducing maintenance costs CCC’s executive board proposes to either transfer responsibility for the maintenance of their parks, playgrounds, sports pitches and greens, or find other solutions. This is the reason for asking
residents of the county for their ideas.
The sporting organisations that use CCC pitches and greens DO pay to hire these facilities! They are not free to use, they never have been, nor have we ever expected them to be. In addition to the monies received from the sporting organisations, Carmarthenshire County Council also receives council tax payments for these areas.
