Cliriad yn dilyn stormydd yn flaenoriaeth i Awdurdod y Parc Cenedlaethol

Published

Cliriad ynMAE AWDURDOD Parc Cenedlaethol Arfordir Penfro yn parhau i flaenoriaethu gwaith clirio yn dilyn y tywydd difrifol parhaus ac mae’n ymdrechu i gadw mynediad yn agored lle bynnag mae hynny’n bosibl.

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.

Am y wybodaeth ddiweddara a chyngor yn dilyn y difrod o ganlyniad i’r stormydd ewch i’r wefan www.pembrokeshirecoast.org.uk.

A 50-YEAR-OLD man from Ceredigion appeared at Haverfordwest Magistrates’ Court on Monday (Sept 16) to face a charge of being intoxicated in a public place, whilst he was prohibited from doing so.

Malcolm Roy Edwards of Queens Road, Aberystwyth, pleaded guilty to being drunk in public in Llanrystud when he was prohibited from doing so after being made subject to a criminal behaviour order by Aberystwyth magistrates on October 12, 2017.

He also admitted breaching that order by committing this offence on September 11 this year.

Magistrates sent Edwards to prison for 18 weeks, as they felt the offence was serious having been aggravated by the offence being committed whilst on a community order.

He must also pay £122 victim surcharge, and the community order was revoked.

AM and MP help ease complicated bus pass application process

Published

on

Elin Jones AM and Ben Lake MP have offered to help constituents who need to renew their Bus Passes, after raising concerns about the change in the renewal process.

As the current Concessionary Travel Passes run out at the end of the year, Transport For Wales have asked pass holders to reapply online, however Elin Jones and Ben Lake have raised concerns that the process is over complicated and that applying online rather than via a paper form will exclude many.

Initially, if applicants wanted a paper form, TfW said that applicants had to call a helpline and were warned the process would take a long time. So, as thousands went onto the website, it crashed under the weight of demand.

However, with the website expected to be back up and running soon, Elin Jones and Ben Lake have offered to help constituents reapply.

Elin Jones said:

“Bus pass users have been told that their current passes will be accepted for travel until 31 December 2019, however after that they will need to have the new pass.

“The application process has been muddled by urging people to reapply online. We know that many over 60s and disabled people may not have internet access or may be unfamiliar with its use.

“To simplify the process, I am offering the support of my office to try and help constituents with the process of reapplying for their bus pass, and Ben Lake MP is doing the same.

“If constituents would like to collect a paper form, or if they require assistance applying on paper or online, then they are welcome to contact us and we would be glad to assist, either by arranging a visit to either of our offices, or by sending forms to you.”

Ben Lake added:

“We know how vital access to buses are to many older and vulnerable people in Ceredigion, and I hope that we will be able to help as many people as possible to keep this access.”
