This newsletter is reporting on the Committee
meetings held 18th August and 7th October. The full reports are
A precis of what was discussed at the meetings
is given below.
August 18th Committee Meeting
At the time of this meeting no
firm decision had been made by Gwynedd Council regarding charges for the ByG car
Other road safety issues were
raised. The bus company and emergency services are concerned about the double
parking in the vicinity of Seaview Terrace. There is a narrow ‘pinch point’
opposite Glanaber and restrictions to parking in this area may be considered.
Speed limits were also discussed and a limit of 20mph on Mersey Street would
have merit for the benefit of the school children. Some residents say that a
20mph speed limit should cover the whole of the village with warning signs on
the hill down into ByG. It was thought that a questionnaire would be beneficial
to gauge opinions on all improved road safety schemes.
The talks between Gwynedd Council
and Scottish Power about pollarding trees that were interfering with power
cables are still ongoing.
The redevelopment of St Cyngar’s
Hall is scheduled to begin in 2016.
Pauline and Rachel are looking
into organizing a fund raising concert.
October 7th Committee Meeting.
The bus service changes were
discussed since connections with other services from Porthmadog did not tie up.
A successful afternoon tea, 23rd
September, was attended by 32 people. A pot luck lunch was held on the 20th
October. The coffee mornings at Sea View café were not so well attended. These
are held on the first Monday of each month between 10.30 and 12 noon.
There is a proposal to add a
“Disabled Toilet” in the car park attached to the current toilet block. Also to
explore whether the existing block can be decorated so that it blends better
into the ethos of the village. FofByG would help in whatever way is considered
During September a talk was given
in Chapel Bethel by PCSO Wendy Kay about the new format for Neighbour Hood
Watch. Please refer to the attachment for more information.
Gwynedd Council are looking for
£12m in austerity cuts. A consultation document has been circulated for opinions
and needs to be returned by the end of the month. Refer to an attachment written
by Tom Brooks in reply to the ‘Gwynedd Challenge’. The responses can be entered
electronically on the Gwynedd Challenge until midnight on November 30th.
The Council requires your input and you can get a copy online and any
thoughts on how the saving can be made or where savings should not be made needs
to be communicated to the Council. Every entry made could be the critical one
for protecting our environment in ByG
Parts of the coastal path are
considered dangerous .Pictures to be taken and shown to the Coastal Path
The next Committee Meeting is scheduled for 2nd
The next coffee morning will be at
the Sea View Cafe on Monday 7th December.
