Tearaway hooligans are ripping up ground and littering Millennium Coastal Park land at Burry Port.
Following complaints from residents at Heol Vaughan who have found drugs parphenalia amongst the litter, signs warning against driving or riding scrambling motor cycles on the land have been erected by Carmarthenshire Council.
The land is reclaimed and was the site for the former inner Pembrey Old Harbour before it was in-filled by domestic refuse and grassed over.
Immediately opposite the popular Shoreline Caravan Park the land is a popular walking site in summer and landing site for migratory birds.
County Councillor Pat Jones said: “Last year we created a bund on the boundary of the land to prevent the offensive intrusion of joy riders who are making lives of those living nearby a misery.
“The signs will allow the police to carry out enforcement if any drivers are caught on the land now. In the past they have been able to argue that there are no signs banning them from the land.”
County Councillor Stephen James said: “We are determined to stamp out this nuisance. Not only are car and motor cycle wheels ripping up the ground but rangers are having to clear up quantities of litter that frighteningly contains drug paraphernalia in their wake.
“We are grateful the money has been found from regeneration funds for these signs. Repairing the ground and collecting the litter has been proving very expensive and there has been the inconvenience and danger to the public to overcome.”
