Mae cyfanswm o 35 lleoliad o gwmpas y Parc Cenedlaethol wedi profi difrod yn ystod stormydd mis Ionawr, yn amrywio o sbwriel yn cronni i golli tir a thwyni arfordirol. Yn fewndirol, arweiniodd llifogydd a gwyntoedd cryfion at erydu gyli difrifol i rai llwybrau ceffyl yn ogystal â choed yn syrthio dros lwybrau.
Er bod y rhan fwyaf o drwsio neu ddargyfeirio wedi digwydd yn y lleoliadau hyn, dioddefodd rhai ddifrod pellach yn ystod stormydd dechrau Chwefror a bydd rhaid ail adrodd peth o’r gwaith.
Dywedodd Anthony Richards, Rheolwr Mynediad a Hawliau Tramwy Awdurdod y Parc Cenedlaethol: “Mae trwsio difrod y stormydd yn flaenoriaeth er mwyn sicrhau bod y safleoedd a’r llwybrau mor ddiogel a hygyrch ag sy’n bosibl. Bydd rhai atgyweiriadau yn rhai dros dro a bydd gwaith mwy parhaol yn digwydd ar ôl llanw uchel diwedd Chwefror.
“Mae’r pwyslais ar waith atgyweirio yn y meysydd parcio, llwybrau mynediad i’r traeth a Llwybr yr Arfordir yn barod ar gyfer y prif dymor ymwelwyr er lles pob defnyddiwr, cymunedau lleol, heb anghofio’r economi lleol.
“Diogelwch y cyhoedd yw ein prif gonsyrn ac mae’r Awdurdod yn cynghori pobl i gadw draw o ardaloedd y twyni gan fod erydu o ganlyniad i’r llanw uchel wedi achosi i rai o’r twyni fod yn ansefydlog ac mewn perygl o gwympo.”
Yn dilyn diweddariad i Awdurdod y Parc Cenedlaethol ar Chwefror 5ed, diolchodd y Cynghorwr Mike James ac Aelodau’r Awdurdod i’r swyddogion am ymateb mor brydlon i’r difrod ac am eu gwaith caled parhaus.
Ychwanegodd y Cynghorwr Mike James: “Fe hoffwn hefyd ddiolch i aelodau’r gymuned sydd wedi gwirfoddoli i helpu gydag ymdrech y clirio, yn cynnwys myfyrwyr Coleg Ceredigion fu’n clirio sbwriel ym Mharrog Trefdraeth a Thraeth Trefdraeth a disgyblion o Ysgol Aberteifi fu’n helpu ar Draeth Poppit.”
Er bod yna ymdrechu caled i gadw mynediad yn agored, mae materion mwy cymhleth mewn dau leoliad poblogaidd bob pen i’r sir wedi arwain at gau estynedig wrth i fwy o archwilio a derbyn cyngor arbenigol ddigwydd er mwyn dod o hyd i’r ateb gorau yn y tymor hir.
O ganlyniad, mae’r llwybr mynediad i draeth Caerfai ger Tyddewi yn dal ar gau gan fod tirlithriad wedi tanseilio’r llwybr mynediad i’r traeth hanner y ffordd i lawr y llethr.
Ar Lwybr yr Arfordir ar ben Penalun o Draeth y De yn Ninbych y Pysgod, mae’r platfform gwylio a grisiau mynediad i’r traeth wedi eu difrodi’n ddifrifol gan stormydd mis Ionawr a chollwyd tri metr ychwanegol o Lwybr yr Arfordir oherwydd erydu’r twyni. Mae yna lwybr amgen ar gael, a hyd nes bydd y twyni wedi sefydlu eto, nid yw’n bosibl asesu’n llawn yr opsiynau neu ddatblygu ateb tymor hir.
Mae safleoedd a llwybrau a ystyrir yn beryglus neu angen eu trwsio ar gyfer cadeiriau olwyn er enghraifft wedi eu symud dros dro o wefan y Parc hyd nes y byddan nhw’n cael eu trwsio. Ymhob achos darperir esboniad am yr ymyriad hwn gydag arwyddion ar y safle.
Mae Parcmyn y Parc Cenedlaethol yn gweithio gyda Cadw Cymru’n Daclus, yr Ymddiriedolaeth Genedlaethol a Chyngor Sir Penfro i gydlynu cyfres o waith clirio gwirfoddol ar y traethau a thir cyhoeddus ar droedleoedd. Mae trigolion cymunedau lleol a cheidwaid gwirfoddol hefyd wedi dod i helpu gyda’r dasg hon. Rhoddwyd cyllid gan Lywodraeth Cymru i helpu gyda chostau clirio Llwybr yr Arfordir, tra bod ffyrdd eraill o gyllido yn cael eu harchwilio er mwyn cyfyngu ar y gost i’r Awdurdod.

Workshop held on Ceredigion’s economic future
A WORKSHOP was held for Elected Members on Thursday, March 8, to discuss Ceredigion’s Economic Future bringing together some of the county’s biggest organisations to share what they had to offer and what partnership working could look like in the future.
With an introduction and background to Growing Mid Wales by Chief Executive of Ceredigion County Council, Eifion Evans, Ceredigion’s Economic Future Members Workshop proceeded to discuss partnership working with the organisations. Aberystwyth University, Qinetiq Group PLC, West Wales Airport Ltd, Thales Group and Volac International Ltd were in attendance talking about future investment opportunities and outlining significant plans in the county for growth.
Councillor Ellen ap Gwynn, Chair of the Growing Mid Wales Partnership and Ceredigion County Council Leader, said: “Holding this workshop and working together with some of the county’s organisations shows the strong position that we are in to develop. I’m looking forward to seeing the exciting developments of Growing Mid Wales in the coming years and particularly so in terms of longer term prospects. The workshop was very important for Members in making them aware of these opportunities and the session was welcomed by all who attended.”
Significant opportunities were recognised as the Mid Wales region starts to develop its response to the Government on the possibilities for a Growth Deal.
Council services returning to normal
WITH the snow and ice thawing across Ceredigion, Council services are returning to normal after wintry weather, but weather conditions continue to affect some services.
Council workers have recently spread 1,560 tons of grit on the roads and have carried out seven continuous 12 hour shifts. Council vehicles responding to the wintry weather have travelled approximately 10,100 miles. The B4343 has now reopened.
All waste collection teams were deployed today (5 March), however access issues in some locations may impact on the ability to provide a full service. Information on any waste service disruption can be found at http://www.ceredigion.gov.uk/resident/bins-recycling/recycling-bin-collection-dates/waste-disruptions/ or by contacting 01545 572 572.
The Council’s Household Waste sites have reopened. It is likely all waste services will be functioning as usual during the first half of the week.
Councillor Ray Quant MBE, the Cabinet member responsible for Technical Services said, “Council staff have been out in all conditions and every hour throughout the day and night to keep Ceredigion residents safe. The outstanding teamwork and dedication shown during the adverse weather situation is to be highly commended and I’m sure everyone is very grateful for their work. It’s also important to keep in mind that the planning work that was carried out before the weather hit Ceredigion has allowed staff to prioritise and uses resources effectively for maximum impact.”
Ysgol Bro Teifi remains closed today due to water supply disruption. Pupils and staff from Rhos-y-wlad Campus, Ysgol Rhoshelyg will transfer to Llangeitho Campus for a few days due to water leakage. Dihewyd School and Canolfan Aeron sent pupils home due to water supply disruption. Every other school in Ceredigion has reopened after being closed on Thursday and Friday (01 and 02 March 2018) due to wintry weather.
