Llangwm Community Council Public Consultation - Village Hall Project

Posted 25th September 2020

LCC are undertaking a Public Consultation for residents views on the proposals for the Village Hall Project. There will be a "Llangwm Newsletter Special" posted to each Llangwm household for residents to complete.

 

Why a new village hall?

After nearly 50 years of service, our Village Hall is in a sad state and needs major investment to bring it up to current standards. The Village Hall Commitee and Community Council have serious concerns through commissioned surveys (see below) about the fabric of the building, and it can only get worse.

We need to do something NOW

We need a Village Hall that's big enough for all the activities you've told us are necessary for our growing community. This means a bigger piece of land at Pill Parks. We need to know we have this before we can start planning and design.

 

History of the Village Hall

1938: the community bought a plot of land at Pill Parks, but WWII intervened before building work could take place.

1958: Llangwm's parish council received a grant from the National Playing Fields Association (now the Fields in Trust) to help buy the rest of the rugby field. However, a Covenant was placed on the land preventing any future building development. (The playground and rugby stand were permitted development as they supported recreational use.)

1978: our Village Hall was built after a huge fund raising effort by the community, including a door-to-door collection.

2020: we need a Village Hall with more space in a new eco-friendly building fit for the 21st century.

 

But what about the Covenant preventing new building?

To do this, and because of the Covenant, the Community Council would have to agreee to exchange land in Llangwm with land of a similar size with Fields in Trust. The only land available is the common land at Black Tar, over which the council has 'guardianship'. Fields in Trust, a national charity, will protect the land for the future in exactly the same way as our Community Council. This is supported by the Common Land Officer at Pembrokeshire County Council and will enable grant applications for funding for the new village hall to be prepared.
