CORNELLY COMMUNITY COUNCIL NEWS – MARCH 2016

WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP WITH BCBC

Countrywide Grounds Maintenance has been commissioned by this Council again this year to undertake grass cutting throughout the village.  These extra cuts will ensure the reduction in cuts by Bridgend County Borough Council does not result in the grass becoming overgrown.

This Council has also agreed to fund the cleaning of the public toilets at Kenfig National Nature Reserve for two days a week.  If this Council had not agreed to grant this funding then Bridgend County Borough Council had stated the toilets would be closed to the public.

CHRISTMAS TREE & FESTIVE LIGHTING

Cornelly Community Council were pleased to be able to provide the Christmas lights during the 2015 festive season and in addition they were delighted to work in partnership with CADTT once again  to provide the village with a Christmas Tree on Heol Fach.  The tree and fencing were purchased by the Community Council, with Cornelly & District Development Trust (CADTT) taking forward the siteing of the tree and lights.

BELISHA BEACONS ON HEOL FACH

Concerns were raised by members of the public about the belisha beacons on Heol Fach being too dim and cars not stopping when pedestrians were using the crossing.  The Community Council resolved to match fund with BCBC, the purchase of Zebrite Belisha Beacons which will be far more effective.  The beacons were installed on 16th March 2016.

VEHICLE ACTIVATED SPEEDWATCH SIGN AT KENFIG

The Community Council were pleased to provide a VAS in the vicinity of the Angel Public House at Kenfig, in response to concerns raised by residents of Kenfig.  Further road safety measures for the village are presently being looked into.

 WELCOME TO CORNELLY SIGNS

Five ‘Welcome to Cornelly’ signs were purchased by the Community Council this year.  These signs have been very well received and the Community Council intend to build on the success of this project by investigating further environmental improvements that can be made throughout the village
