Compost bins provided by the Community Council

Home composting can reduce the cost (financial and environmental) of garden and food waste disposal whilst also providing gardeners with a continuous supply of garden compost. There is an option for the Community Council to buy compost bins in bulk to reduce the cost to the householder. This would reduce the cost to £17 per bin including delivery.

The bins are manufactured from recycled plastic and my personal experience is that after 12 years mine are as good as new. There is also the option for the Council to subsidise to encourage more uptake. if you would like the Community Council to allocate some funding to further reduce the cost per household, please indicate this in the comments.

Improved road signage on the Gower commons

The dilapidated and missing signage at the entrances to the Gower commons needs to be replaced urgently!
The existing signage was funded and installed by the Gower Commons initiative in circa 1998 and are now badly in need of replacement.
New signs will warn drivers of free roaming livestock and Animals crossing the roads.
They will beed to be placed near each Cattlegrid on Fairwood, Pengwern and Cefn Bryn where possible.
Hopefully this will raise awareness of the animals, slow traffic and reduce animal deaths.
There have been 9 animal deaths since the beginning of December 2019 already!
Please vote for this initiative and help make the Gower roads safer for everyone.

Increase Facilities for Parking Bikes

Increase the number of bike racks around the community to encourage use of them and reduce the number of cars on the road. People would be more inclined to travel by bicycle if they knew they could leave them safely and securely to go for a walk or do their shopping etc.
We could have some in the National Trust car park, Golf Club and in Kittle as a minimum.

Village CCTV

Our village is getting hammered by criminal gangs. It’s time our community council helped to protect us and provide vital evidence for the police by installing CCTV cameras.
