Carmarthenshire’s Executive Board is hitting the road again and meeting in other locations for the first time in its history.
On October 1, the board will meet at the Princess Gwenllian Centre in Kidwelly, and future meetings are arranged for Llandeilo, Whitland and Burry Port.
Council Leader Kevin Madge has introduced the initiative with the aim of making the Executive Board more accessible to the public.
He also wants to meet town and community councils in their own areas and take the opportunity to visit local businesses or schools.
On each occasion, local groups and organisations will be invited along after the meeting to discuss their issues.
The executive board started the move in Ammanford where representatives from the six Amman Valley town and community councils attended.
Cllr Madge said: “I want to take the Executive Board meetings around the county and to work more closely with town and community councils.
“It is important that we work with town and community councils and other community groups and organisations and identify opportunities for collaboration for the continued provision of community facilities such as public conveniences, parks and playgrounds, libraries and much more.”
