Environment (Wales) Act Part 1 – Section 6

The Biodiversity and Resilience of Ecosystems

Duty Report 2019

Cyngor Cymuned Llanrhystud Community Council

Introduction and Context

Llanrhystud Community Council is responsible for one green space namely ‘the playing field’ in its local community.

Within the playing field are: a children’s play area, a football pitch and a storage garage.

The boundary of the field consists of natural and mature hedgerows and trees which are a haven for birds and other wildlife.

We promote sustainability and biodiversity by pursuing sustainable practices whenever possible.

We serve approximately 430 households. The precept for 2019/2020 was £8600.00.

Current Action Report

  • The field is mown regularly during the football season, less regularly at other times.
  • The hedges are kept trimmed every few years.
  • The council raises awareness of the need to respect the local environment through posts on social media.

Proposed changes to the management of the field in the next 3 years.

  • To identify an area where the grass is not mown regularly as at present in order to attract native plants and wildlife.
  • To invite the eco committee of the local primary school to advise us on what actions they would like to take in order to help biodiversity.


Review of S6 duty

  • What has worked well?
  • What have the barriers been?


SSAFA the Armed Forces Charity

VE DAY 75 - marking the end of the war in Europe.

The weekend 8th - 10th May 2020 will be an international celebration of peace - a time to remember, reflect and pay tribute to the millions who played such a vital part in achieving it. This includes the Armed Forces personnel from many countries who gave their lives or were physically and mentally injured; the hard working women and men who kept factories, mines, shipyards and farms operating throughout the years of turmoil; the ARP wardens, police officers, doctors, nurses, firemen, local defence volunteers and many other safeguarding the home front.

More information about the celebrations that may take place on this weekend visit the local SSAFA branch on:

Cambrian News - This is this month's Cambrian news article which it failed to publish last week / Dyma erthygl y mis yma,  ddylai fod wedi cael ei gyhoeddi wythnos diwethaf.

Llanrhystud Community Council met on 11th July to discuss the correspondence and matters raised by the community. Ceredigion had replied to the request for signs and a lower speed limit on Church Street but as the meeting was not satisfied with the reply a site meeting with Ceredigion has been requested. Whilst discussing road issues it was decided to write to ask the Trunk Road authority for the results of the traffic survey carried out on the A487 in January. A copy of the letter was also sent to Elin Jones AM.

ROSPA Playsafety had carried out the annual inspection of the play area and given it a Low Risk score which is well inside safety levels. Permission was given to pay its bill of £88 and a bill of £6365 to the contractor Mr. Harris for the erection of the agility balance trail and play train in the play area.

Notice of four public consultations was received from Ceredigion County Council. The consultations on the Replacement Local Development Plan Candidate sites,  Language Strategy, the closure of the Rhydeinon Household Waste site and the conversation ‘Help us to Help you’ can all be accessed on Ceredigion Council’s website. There were no observations made for the following planning applications: A180599 (Penrhos Golf and Country Club replacement front lobby); A180532( erection of a house on Plot 3, Cae’r Felin); A180517(animal feed store at Maenllwyd);A180616 (extension at Maes y Delyn).

A discussion took place about the state of the hall frontage and it was decided to write to the hall committee to offer the community council’s support if it is needed. The clerk was asked to contact Ceredigion County Council to ask for the overgrown hedges between Pengraig Perris and Bwlch y Gwynt to be cut.

The next meeting is on the 5th September 2018 at 8.00pm in the Memorial Hall.

Cynllun Caru Gwenyn / Bee Friendly Scheme

Cynllun Caru Gwenyn

Mae’r cynllun Caru Gwenyn ar agor i ysgolion, cymunedau, trefi, cyrff cyhoeddus, busnesau, prifysgolion ac addoldai yng Nghymru. Y syniad yw y gall grŵp sy’n cymryd rhan gymryd camau o dan bob un o’r pedair thema isod:

1. Bwyd – darparu ffynonellau bwyd sy’n llesol i bryfed peillio yn eich ardal

2. Llety pum seren – sicrhau lleoedd i bryfed peillio fyw

3. Dim plaladdwyr na chwynladdwyr  ̶  ymrwymo i osgoi cemegau sy’n niweidio peillwyr

4. Hwyl – cynnwys y gymuned gyfan a dweud wrth bobl pam rydych yn helpu peillwyr. 

Mae’r cynllun wedi’i ddylunio fel ei bod yn hawdd cymryd rhan a bod modd ichi eich achredu eich hunain, fwy neu lai. Ar ôl cymryd camau a chyflwyno tystiolaeth (ffotograffau), bydd y Cyngor yn cael achrediad swyddogol gan Lywodraeth Cymru i ddangos bod y gymuned yn un sy’n Caru Gwenyn, yn ogystal â’r hawl i ddefnyddio logo swyddogol Caru Gwenyn.  

Gallwch weld yr holl wybodaeth am sut i gael achrediad Caru Gwenyn yma -


Bee Friendly Scheme

The Bee Friendly scheme is open to schools, communities, towns, public bodies, businesses, universities and places of worship in Wales. The idea is that a participating group or Community Council could take action under each of four themes: 

1. Food – providing  pollinator-friendly food sources in your area 

2. Five Star accommodation – providing places for insect pollinators to live 

3. Freedom from pesticides and herbicides – committing to avoid chemicals that harm pollinators 

4. Fun – involving all the community and telling people why you are helping pollinators. 

 It’s designed to be easy to engage with and essentially self-certifying. Having taken action and submitted evidence (photos), the Council would then get official accreditation from the Welsh Government as a Bee Friendly Community and would be able to use the official Bee Friendly logo. 

All the information about how to achieve Bee Friendly accreditation is here:
