As the current Mayor for Pembrey and Burry Port, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website.
I hope that you find the website both useful and informative, with something for everyone, resident and visitor alike.
The various sections provide information about the services we provide. Along with general information about the area, the local attractions and the various initiatives the council is pursuing. You may also find links to other websites, including those with whom the Council works in partnership to enhance the quality of life of our community.
The council is actively continuing the work of asset transfer. Those facilities in our community that have previously been the responsibility of Carmarthenshire County Council are being returned to local control. Although the transfers are not yet complete the future will see many areas being used and improved for the benefit of our communities.
I look forward to spending my year as Mayor working with every member of our communities. To quote another Welsh saying;
“Dros ein Gwlad, dros ein Iaith, dros pobl dros plant. Gyda’n gilydd fe safwn ni”
(For our Country, for our language, for our people for our children. We stand together.
My very best wishes.
Councilor Peter Freeman

To provide some of these services we need to collect and use appropriate personal information; this may be collected on a paper or online form, by telephone, email, or by using CCTV or video footage including photographic and digital images, or in person by a member of our staff.
