Traffic Calming Measures on Tyacelyn Road, Penygraig (08/04/2022)

Residents in conjunction with Councillor Davies (299)

To install Traffic Calming Measures on Tyacelyn Road, Penygraig to keep residents safe

Cabinet Response


Based on review of the personal injury collision history for the most of a three-year period, the site will not be ranked as a priority at present due to a other locations which have a greater need.

The concerns regarding speeding will be passed to the police in order that they may consider taking appropriate action however setting up a Community Speed Watch Scheme in Penygraig would be beneficial.

Residents can complete a community concern form on the GoSafe Website; where it will be picked up by GoSafe.

Permit Parking in Grawen Street, Porth (23/03/22) Residents in conjunction with Councillor Williams and Councillor Cox (24)

As residents we have become increasingly aware of the number of cars in the street, resulting in lots of residents receiving numerous parking tickets.

Cabinet Response


As its name suggests, with some exceptions, residents’ parking removes parking

opportunity for everyone except residents. This can cause difficulty for those who

may rely on family or friends to visit. To overcome this, shared residents parking /

limited waiting can be introduced, however, this option would not address the

concerns raised where parking by non residents is short term or where demand from

residents exceeds the available parking opportunity. Therefore, the introduction of

residents parking may not address the problems raised and would not be considered

at the present time.

Empty properties Porth (23/03/22) Residents in conjunction with Councillor Williams and Councillor Cox (310)

Empty Properties are allowed to remain eyesores. Discussions have gone on for too long

Cabinet Response


The Council continues to discuss opportunities with private property owners in the town to consider accessing such funds. A Town Centre Maintenance Grant has also been implemented to encourage businesses to offer an attractive and tidy presence in the town, which continues to be available to business owners.

Furthermore, with regards to the properties mentioned, I can confirm that the owner of the former Top Ten Bingo Hall was served with a Section 215 (Maintenance of Land) Notice in February which requires numerous improvements to the building.

The Notice has to be complied with by 15th June. A prosecution can be pursued if the works remain outstanding after the compliance date elapses.
