Cllr.G.Rees distributed information dealing with the following matters:

LDP    Acre Field      Ganol Works Resurfacing Work   Cycle Route


10. Local Matters:

1. Cllr.ap Huw mentioned that the Crest recycle was not as regularly collected. Cllr.G.Rees stated that they had lost the contract with Conwy CBC so would not be collecting fortnightly.

2. Cllr.ap Huw mentioned that the recycle wagon often left litter after it had collected at Bryn Rhys. This will be mentioned to the department.

3. Cllr.ap Huw asked why there were no recycling bins and only a ‘black bin’ in the cemetery. Conwy CBC do not supply ‘bins’ for recycling, only the green bags. Businesses have this option but have to pay extra for it.

4. Cllr.Mrs.Evans had read the ‘Good Councillor’s Guide’ and spotted that the council has the power to have ‘Youth Representatives’ at council meetings. It was agreed that she would approach Tommy Lyness to see if some of the youths might like to come and observe the meetings and perhaps be given an opportunity to speak. They are the future of the council.

5. Cllr.Mrs.Evans asked if the conifer hedge next to Riverside Motors could be cut back. It protrudes onto the pavement.

6. Cllr.Mrs.Evans reported a loose inspection chamber cover on the pavement (A470) by the bottom of Llwybr y Gerddi

7. Cllr.Mrs.Evans had attended the summer play scheme in Acre Field on two occasions and was dismayed at the lack of interest shown by the four Conwy CBC employees on site. She was asked to write a report on her views so that it can be passed on to the relevant Dept.

8. Cllr.Mrs.Parry reported that wagons were using the B5381 Bryn y Maen road for access to the reservoir site. A complaint will be passed on to Dŵr Cymru.

9. Cllr.Mrs.Edmondson asked if planning permission had been granted on the plot by the garages at Maeshyfryd. The Clerk will make some research. Records show that permission was granted in February 2009.

All local matters were approved and the Clerk will follow up those that need attention.

10.Materion Lleol:

Cyng. ap Huw nad oedd cwmni Crest yn casglu’r stwff ailgylchu mor rheolaidd.
Dywedodd Cyng. Rees fod Crest wedi colli’r cytundeb gyda CHBS Conwy ac na
fyddent yn casglu bob pythefnos.

2. Soniodd
Cyng. ap Huw fod y lori ail-gylchu’n gadael sbwriel ar ei holy m Mryn Rhys. Fe
gaiff y neges ei basio 'mlaen.

Cyng. ap Huw pam nad oedd bin ail-gylchu yn y fynwent yn lle bin du. Nid yw

gwyrdd ond rhaid talu amdanynt.

y Gerddi

Cyng.Mrs.Evans wedi ymweld â’r cynllun chwarae yn Acre Field dwywaith dros yr
haf ac roedd yn siomedig o ddiffyg diddordeb y bedair o GBS Conwy oedd yno.
Gofynnwyd iddi ysgrifennu adroddiad ar ei argraffiadau fel y gellir ei basio
‘mlaen i’r adran gywir.

8. Adroddodd
Cyng.Mrs.Parry fod lorïau’n defnyddio ffordd Bryn y Maen B5381 i fynd a dod at
y gwaith cronfa. Fe wneir cwyn i Dŵr Cymru.

9. Gofynnodd
