Rob James, Deputy Leader of Carmarthenshire Labour stated, “As the local Councillor for Lliedi, home to the wonderful Parc Howard, I welcome the decision of the Labour Group in Llanelli Town Council to negotiate with Carmarthenshire County Council over the future ownership of Parc Howard.
“It is clear from the number of emails and telephone calls I receive from local residents on a regular basis that the park is incredibly important to adults and children alike, and it is imperative that the ongoing debate over the future direction of Parc Howard be settled.
“Whilst I await for more details to emerge from the negotiations, I wholeheartedly support the principle of returning the ownership of the park to the people of Llanelli and Town Councillors have my full support with this endeavour.
Can YOU Help?… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the West Wales Chronicle than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The West Wales Chronicle’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support the Chronicle – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
