Taylor Wimpey off to a fast start

The Wood Lane 220 house development well under way. Alan's Skips and Hollingsworth lorries back and to from the site all day. Footings and scaffold shooting up. I seem to remember a junior football field next to Nigel. A glance sideways the other night reveals a building site. This was the football field that couldn't be used because of sheep grazing?

A strange affair.

The draw bridge has been lifted on comments.
They are open again to all and anonymous.

Redundant Penyffordd Play Areas

Penyffordd district is dotted with play areas. I wonder how often some of them are used.

Perhaps the unused ones could be sold off and money put towards "central village land" before it all disappears?

In my opinion the village lacks a central full size football playing field. Whilst it's very good of Hanson Cement to supply a football pitch for seniors it's hardly just around the corner.

More centrally situated facilities must encourage a more social cohesive village.

Cabbage Patch

This is an area formerly used by villagers as a common before it was bought by a horse loving owner. What used to be a field full of green grass is now barren land with electric fences and dock leaves.

Residents need open spaces to walk. Perhaps those who have profited greatly from recent building land sales will consider giving something to the village.

Perhaps a target for Penyffordd councillors to work towards?

Complaints against Flintshire councillors increase

I think they're all marvelous !


Tom tells it as it is

Much quoting of rules in the June Community Council meeting.

" The Chairman Cllr Tom Jones referred to Standing Orders, which provide that once a matter has been resolved then that resolution has a life of 6 months, unless it is revoked by a Notice of Motion supported by a quorum of Members. "

The above was said in response to a resident criticism over a planning application.

Does its scope cover the start of Penymynydd Rd?
