Selective Licensing scheme in the Tyisha area of Llanelli
Views are being sought about the potential introduction of a Selective Licensing scheme in the Tyisha area of Llanelli.
Selective Licensing allows councils to exercise greater controls over private landlords in areas of low housing demand or where there are significant problems with anti-social behaviour.
Landlords must meet certain conditions to gain a license and both landlords and tenants must comply with obligations placed on them as part of the license. Feedback received will form a report for Executive Board.
For further information call Housing Standards team leader Gareth Williams on 01554 742109. The consultation ends on June 21.

Local Flood Risk Management Strategy
Strategic Environmental Assessment Environmental Report
The Flood and Water Management Act 2010 provides for better and more comprehensive management of flood risk for people, homes and businesses. The Act implements Sir Michael Pitt’s recommendations requiring urgent legislation, following his review of the 2007 floods.
As part of the Act, Lead Local Flood Authorities (LLFA) are required to develop, maintain, apply and monitor the application of a strategy for local flood risks such as surface water; ground water; and ordinary watercourses in their area.
Carmarthenshire County Council (CCC) is the designated Lead Local Flood Authority (LLFA) for the administrative area of Carmarthenshire. Having considered the requirements of the Environmental Assessment of Plans and Programmes (Wales) Regulations 2004, CCC have determined that a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) is required for their Local Flood Risk Management Strategy (the ‘Local Strategy’).
This SEA Environment Report documents the environmental assessment and the likely significant effects of the draft Local Strategy. The Environment Report is part of the public consultation documents on the draft Local Strategy.
The results of the SEA and the public consultation will be taken into account in the development of the final Local Strategy and its adoption. Unfortunately these documents are not available in the Welsh language as they are draft technical documents for consultation only and for a limited period of time. However, if anyone would like to discuss any issues within this report with a member of staff in Welsh, please call Carmarthenshire Direct on 01267 234567 and ask to speak to the Flood Defence Strategy Manager. The final strategy will be available in Welsh.
