Military Exercise 18th to 22nd October 2021

We have just been informed that as of 18th, the military will be carrying out a normal training exercise from St Athan, however there will be day and night time operations each day/night covering periods from 0730 until approximately 0600 concluding Friday morning.

This will be a very small training exercise, but you may notice an increase in flying activity during these periods.

Consultation – 20 mph!

The Welsh Government has announced that 20mph legislation will figure in this year’s legislative programme.

The public consultation on changing the default speed limit on residential streets from 30mph to 20mph is now open until 1st October 2021.  I know I have discussed this with many of you previously and the Council will be submitting a response.
