Llanfiair Community Council (3 March 2016)


Click on the read more link below for the items discussed that concerned St Hilary or here for the full minutes.

Next meeting: Thursday, 7th April 2016 at 7.00pm in St Hilary Village Hall.

Main items:

Councillor Hawkins expressed annoyance at the fact that someone has written their name in the wet cement used to repair a wall in St Hilary. This has spoilt an excellent repair. The Clerk will report this to PCSO O'Callaghan.

Members again discussed the issue of horses on St Hilary Common. The Clerk had contacted the Vale of Glamorgan Council for their advice and was advised that "As far as we are concerned at Parks, the riding of a horse is allowed. Care must be taken to take into account other users of the land".
Members agreed this was not satisfactory as the riders are galloping their horses, churning up the land and it is a 'health and safety' risk to residents and dog walkers. The 'Protection of Open Space Order' will be investigated to ascertain if it applies in this case.

Councillor Llewellyn advised that she had attended a meeting on 2 nd March, at the Council Chamber in Cowbridge Town Hall to discuss the proposed 'Beacon Lighting Ceremony' in celebration of the Queen's 90th Birthday on 21st April.
