THE latest community news from Llanbedr

Community council

THE Capel Moriah application for planning permission for alterations to the chapel buildings has been granted.

It is not known if the sale of the property to the developers who plan to change it into a mosque is still going to occur.

Work to support the revised planning application for the new access road to Llanbedr airfield is underway.

Further ecological surveys are being carried out as the previous surveys took place about four years ago.

YGC hope to have the revised planning application submitted and under consideration by the National Park by October.

There have been further concerns about road safety on the A496 in Llanbedr after the recent accident involving an elderly pedestrian at the south end of the village. The Council has contacted Gwynedd Council again to ask for additional speed restrictions and other road safety measures.

Implementation of such measures is required irrespective of whether the new access road for the airfield is built.

Complaints were received about the length of the grass in the verges on the southern side of the Village and the need for grass verge cutting, these concerns have been passed on to Gwynedd Council.

Annwen Hughes, the county councillor, has asked Gwynedd Council to install hand rails on the wall leading down to the recently repaired footbridge at Pentre Gwynfryn.

Public footpath Number 8 from Pentre Gwynfryn to Penrallt has been temporarily shut due to work been carried out on the path. In addition, the public footpath from Cae’r Meddyg Farm down to the Dolmygliw road is blocked by fallen trees, this has been reported to Gwynedd Council.

The community council’s Llwybrau Llanbedr woodland/ footpaths project is making good progress and has commissioned a graphic designer to prepare a leaflet for use on the webpage, on the exhibition boards and printed leaflets for the four circular paths.

It was considered likely that a planning application will be required for the noticeboard on the pavement opposite the Victoria Inn.

The members of the sub-committee were thanked for their hard work.

Gr?p Llanbedr Huchenfeld are also busy and are due to help host our German friends on their visit to Llanbedr on the weekend of 20 to 22 September.

On 22 September there will be an open afternoon at the village hall with numerous local crafters and groups present, open to all free of charge.

The visitors from Huchenfeld will also be visiting Ysgol Feithrin Llanbedr, Ysgol Gynradd Llanbedr, Llanbedr Beer Festival (where the entertainment will include John ac Alun), and a service at St Peter’s Church before returning home early on Monday, 23 September.

There will be no community council meeting in August, there will be a well-earned break.

Next meeting will be held on 5 September.
