Cyngor y Cymuned -Llanferres From the minutes of the January meeting:- Present: Cllr. David Jones (Chair), Cllr. Olive Parry, Cllr. Margaret Davies, Cllr. John Almond, Cllr. Rob Arnstrong, Cllr. Rob Jones, Cllr. David Twomey and the Clerk, Mrs Gwyneth Dillon and County Councillor Martyn Holland. 1. Apologies: Cllr. Jac Armstrong and Cllr. Yvonne Foden-Mc Corry. 2. Declarations of Interest: None declared. 3. Meeting open to the public for ten minutes: A planning application for a dwelling in Maeshafn was to be considered later in the meeting and it was pointed out to the Council that concrete piles had been necessary when a property had been constructed on a nearby site, due to the nature of the land and possible mine workings and it was probable that similar protective measures would be required for the proposed development. A complaint was received about parking on the pavement near to Loggerheads Country Park which would have prevented the passage of prams or pushchairs. County Councillor Martyn Holland reported that the matter was before the Welsh Assembly and that, once the order was signed, yellow lines would be painted on the road to stop this kind of parking. 4. County councillors report: The new refuse bins were still causing issues but Denbighshire CC were dealing with them as quickly as possible; the problem at Plymog would seem to have been resolved; the Village Hall refuse was being treated as Industrial Waste. A white line was to be painted at the Village Green in Maeshafn to discourage parking which caused


problems for the bus when turning; a notice was being displayed at the bus stop asking prospective passengers to stand where they could be seen by the bus driver when he was at the T junction above the village. Councillor Holland had asked for the pot-holes to be filled on Forestry Road(some had been done) and he reported that water could be as big a hazard as ice. It was doubtful if finance would be available to resurface the road. The County Council had inspected the problem of water on the road at Tafarn-y-Gelyn and it was suggested that officials talk to a local landowner who might have detailed knowledge of the adjacent drains. Cae Derwen would be adopted shortly(after 17 years) but Morris Homes would continue to be responsible for the maintenance of the strip of land at the entrance to Cae Derwen. Denbighshire CC had agreed to a sign at the bottom of Rectory Lane advising the road was not suitable for heavy vehicles. He reported that a tenant wanted to build a large barn on the site currently being used by Welsh Water as a temporary site office and to store equipment etc for the construction of the sewerage pipe, once the site had been cleared. Although not in Llanferres it would be visible from the main road. The land is under covenant to the National Trust. There had been a spate of ‘break-ins’ in Llanarmon(18 in past 3 weeks). Residents should be very wary of door to door salesmen. 5. Minutes of the December Meeting: The minutes for the December meeting were signed as a true record.
