Making changes to help you support local

We’re making some changes to help our town centres get back on their feet, helping our businesses – and you – to stay safe and thrive.

So when you pop into town over the coming weeks, you will notice changes being made.

Some of our town centre streets are being pedestrianised to support traders to bring their business outdoors, and to allow safe queuing and social distancing.

One-way systems for walkways are being brought in to place in some areas, and additional space created for pedestrians by changing some parking bays.

Lower speed limits will also be introduced on many streets to ensure pedestrian safety. It is hoped the measures will not only create a safer place for people to shop local, support traders and enjoy coming into our town centres, but have a positive impact on our environment too – providing more space and improving air quality.

Town centre streets that are being improved for the safety will be pedestrianised between 10am and 4pm, but will be accessible outside these core hours.

Cllr Emlyn Dole, Leader of the Council, said: “We hope these new measures will help our local businesses to get back on their feet and thrive as we all adapt to a new way of shopping and meeting with friends to enjoy our leisure time.

“These changes have been implemented after much consideration and within the boundaries of what the council can do safely and responsibly to protect businesses and visitors whilst also keeping our town centres flowing and operating well.

“We really hope that people will come back to our town centres and help them thrive again by shopping and spending their leisure time locally. We’re urging people to buy local and support Carmarthenshire businesses.”

All of these new and temporary measures will be kept under review and we will be engaging with traders, shoppers and visitors to get your feedback. Keep your eyes peeled for online surveys through our consultation section, and on our social media pages @CarmsCouncil, or email us at consultation@carmarthenshire.gov.uk.

When you come and visit us, remember to Respect, Protect, and Enjoy Carmarthenshire…

  • Respect - guidelines, safety measures, local communities and others around you.
  • Protect - yourself, other people, and critical services; stay home if you’re unwell and wash your hands often.
  • Enjoy - spend your leisure time safely and support local businesses get back on their feet.
