Llanymynech and Pant Annual Parish Meeting

Llanymynech and Pant Parish Council logo

All residents of Pant and Llanymynech are invited to the annual parish meeting on Wednesday 1st May.

The meeting, to be held at Llanymynech Village Hall is the opportunity for residents in the parish to find out about the work of the Parish Council over the past 12 months.

One of the items on the agenda for the meeting is the launch of a new Facebook page focusing on traffic issues in the parish, especially on the A483 and at Llynclys Crossroads.

In its Parish Report, the Parish Council highlights a number of other issues that they have considered.

There are now three defibrillators in the parish at sites in Pant (village shop and Cross Guns pub) and Llanymynech at the Village Hall. There is also a machine on the wall of the Dolphin Inn provided by Carreghofa Community Council. In 2018 training in the use of the machines took place in April in Pant and later in the year at Llanymynech. These machines are vital life savers and are all registered with both West Midlands and Dyfed Powys Ambulance service. If an incident occurs and the emergency services are called, the operator gives the caller the location of the machine and the code for the cabinet lock, so that the defibrillator can be used while the paramedics and ambulance are on their way.

Last year the Council decided to change all the street lights in the parish to LEDs which provide a much brighter light without any heat, thereby saving energy. This will be a costly change, but a necessary one, as most of the current lights will not be supported by spares after 2020. The lanterns will make the light shine down, so that will help keep the night sky dark. Another benefit of the changeover will be the reduction of costly repairs as well as lessening the frustration of residents when a light goes off. The cost of this change will be met by the funding the Council receives from building developments in the parish, known as the Community Infrastructure Levy.

Shropshire Council’s Planning Review has progressed to consideration of some of the preferred sites. The site in Pant at the northern end of the village on the eastern side of the A483 for a possible 47 homes did not find favour with the Council or the residents and many objections were forwarded to the Planning Strategists at Shropshire Council. In Llanymynech the preferred sites were considered appropriate, as one was the site of the former coal yard.

The meeting starts at 7.30pm on 1st May and light refreshments will be available.
