Media Release- Council Tax Stays The Same! - 21/02/2017



There will be no change to the Council Tax bill of Llanelli Rural Council following the Council’s decision on its precept for 2017/18.

The decision was reached at a Special Council meeting held on 20 February, 2017, where Members met to discuss the budget for the year ahead. It was agreed that the charge per ‘Band D’ property will remain at £125.89.

Council Leader Cllr. Tegwen Devichand stated, “I am delighted that the Council has been able to maintain the precept at the same time as expanding the service it already provides. We are forging ahead with the lease transfer of assets from Carmarthenshire County Council. New play equipment has already been installed in Swiss Valley, a new play area provided at Pwll Park and the MUGA in Cefncaeau has also been transferred. Work on Pontyates play area at Heol Llanelli will commence shortly followed by a new play area at Felinfoel. The play area in Clos y Gelli, Llanelli will be taken on together with the play area in Cilsaig, Dafen, which will be up-graded after the legal process has been completed.”

Cllr Devichand added, “Llanelli Rural Council has stood by its commitment to secure the future of recreation and leisure facilities by also taking on Dafen Park, Pwll Park and the Trallwm playing field. We will work with members of the bowls, cricket, football and rugby clubs to provide a good maintenance service.

“Voluntary groups will continue to be supported to help them work effectively in the community with opportunities to earn time credits through registration for the LRC Time Credits Programme.

“All other services will continue including the successful delivery of a range of Work Based Learning Programmes as part of the Skills Academy Wales Consortium.”
