Llanelli has a lot of dense housing areas. It's important people have access to open spaces to exercise, walk their dogs and for children to play in. These activities have been proven to improve child development, mental health and happiness.
Open spaces allow local residents to meet and interact with each other, creating a safer and stronger community.
This recreational ground is much-needed in this area of LLanelli. Once built on, the green spaces will not return and wildlife habitats lost in the process.
