Muddy footpaths
Can we have some stones/gravel/grit for our local footpaths where the community council has a say, especially the areas affected by mud? For example the area near the Golf Club on the green path alongside Pennard Road, approaching Southgate.

This is part of keeping people fit and getting them out walking.

Thanks to the work of Pennard Community Council. Starting with an idea on VocalEyes, a fully working water fountain has been installed at Pennard Stores. Funded by the community, people can top up for free when enjoying the cliffs. It’s here for everyone, residents and visitors can enjoy the generosity of the Village without leaving a mark, reducing the amount of plastic entering our oceans.

Select the System Types to assign:



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.
