RESIDENTS of Pembrey and visitors to the Country Park have seen red over double yellow lines, which have appeared along the internal roads.
Some on social media asked if it was anything to do with the Tour of Britain whilst others complained about the unfairness of being charged to enter the park and now having to face possible fines for parking on the internal roads.
The banks along the road leading to the country park had also been cordoned off with large tree trunks in the past. A small car park outside the park entrance is also said to have been made a pay and display area.
Many have commented that this is a money making scheme by the council.
“It is all about squeezing every last penny” said one Facebook user whilst another said “We, residents of Pembrey, pay in our council tax some of which goes towards funding for the park and we don’t get value for money.”
Speaking to Llanelli Online, local resident Peter A Tully said: “I feel quite outraged that the County council have imposed the restrictions for parking on a popular and well used car park.
“Many residents of Pembrey use this hidden gem for access to the beach at Pembrey Burrows. This is also access to a dog friendly beach.
“I feel that the council are trying to force people to park only in the Country Park at a cost.”
Carmarthenshire County Council have said that there was a public notice published in a local paper on July 14th.
