Review of the Electoral Arrangements of the County Borough of Bridgend.

A Review of the Electoral Arrangements of the County Borough of Bridgend was received by the Community Council. As far as Coychurch Lower is concerned the recommendations are to split the existing Brackla Ward into four smaller Wards and to merge one of these new Wards, Brackla East with Coychurch Lower which will then be called Brackla East and Coychurch Lower. The Commission is giving notice that the period of representation is from 22nd January to 15 April 2019. Further information about the review can be found on the Commission’s Website www.ldbc.gov.wales.

Dog Fouling.

The Community Council has purchased six new litter bins. Three bins have been installed. One is at the end of Treoes Road by the footpath fence, one by the footpath at the junction of The Court and St Marys View and one on the path between Manor Drive and Brynffrwd Close. One will shortly be fitted at the Bryn. One is planned for the footpath between Main Road and Glenwood Close and one for the footpath by the Fords Plant on the Industrial Estate. Additionally the Community Council will shortly be receiving one post with dog bags attached as part of the new TIKSPAC scheme. This will be placed by the bin at the Bryn.

The Council has now received permission from BCBC to put Dog Fouling/Warning plastic signs/notices on lamp posts in the village. The Council will shortly be purchasing these signs.        Hopefully these measures will encourage all dog owners to bin their dog’s waste.
