  1. Declaration of Interest


At this point the Chair reported that there were no Planning Applications to consider and it was proposed by him, would it be acceptable in future to send an e-mail to cancel the meeting if no planning application were received. It was agreed and RESOLVED to accept the proposal.


  1. Correspondence

The garage was granted full planning permission with the condition that it would not be used for no other purpose.

The applicaton is subject to appeal.

iv) Copy of Ceredigion County Council’s Papers of the Development Control Committee held on Wednesday, 11 November 2015.

Members’ attention were drawn to the planning applications/matters that were relevant to Aberystwyth:

  1. Bryn Deryn, Elm Tree Avenue (Application No: A141002) – Change of Use of HMO to office at ground floor and 2 no. Flats at first floor and second floor.

Approved under delegated powers.


  1. Ceredigion Museum and Tourist Information Centre (Application No: A150433) – Alterations and formation of new entrance into the former Boots building.

Approved under delegated powers.


  1. Llys yr Hen Ysgol (Application No: A150684) – Creation of new accesses with the inclusion of a new lift and ramp accesses to the building and associated works.

Approved under delegated powers.


A question was asked by a Member, how was Llys Owen, Llanbadarn Road  granted planning permission  under delegated powers. It was explained by the Local Member of the County Council, that it was the order of planning that if the Planning Officer, according to planning rules, would think that it would be impossible to overturn the decision of the Assebly if it were to go to Appeal.

It was proposed to send a letter to Owain Davies, the relevant Planning Officer of the Planning Department of Ceredigion County Council asking him for clarity on how the decision to grant planning permission was made, since the application was not compliant with the Conservation Area rules, as understood by members. It was RESOLVED to do this.

  1. To consider Planning Applications


  1. Any Other Business

Because the meeting was short and that Members wanted to stay for a meeting of the Staffing Panel that was starting at 7.30p.m. it was agreed to discuss the Place-Plan with Cllr. Mererid Jones taking the lead in the discussion. She stated there was a need for a strong Local Plan by the Town Council that would reflect local needs. In order to accomplish this there is a need to have meetings with the public, an open web-site and a genuine, purposeful dialogue. How do we want the town to be planned; is there over-development; are there too much HMO; are there under development of 2-bedroomed houses; there isn’t a surgery or dental surgery in Penparcau. After collecting the information it could be asked to be adopted by Ceredigion County Council, taking into consideration a Welsh Language Impact Assessment. The bigger the consultation with the public the stronger the report will be legally. It was asked what was the process of adopting the “Place-Plan”. The developers must give consideration to the ideas but it may not be mandatory. If the “Place-Plan” is used wisely it can be used to realise one dream from many ideas. Aberystwyth Town Council could organise an on-line questionnaire; choose places to meet in order for people to air their views. It was suggested in the discussion that it was similar to “Masterplan mark two” but it was agreed that this was from the bottom up and that it should be better.  It was agreed to re-look at the Masterplan. It was RESOLVED that Cllr. Jones would organise a meeting with representatives of Llanbadarn Community Council and Faenor Community Council, in the new year.

It was RESOLVED to accept the Minutes.

  1. Declaration of Interest



  1. Presentation by Mr. Chris Mackenzie-Grieve – Chair of Business Improvement  District.

Cafwyd cyflwyniad pwynt-pŵer gan Mr. Chris Mackenzie-Grieve.


Cefndir ystadegol economi nos ac economi dydd y Deyrnas Unedig. Erbyn 2020 bydd 31% llai o siopau ar y stryd yn gyffredinol. O bob 1.2% y mae prynwyr yn ei wario, y mae costau wedi codi 2%.

Manylion penodol am economi Aberystwyth -

Economi dydd - e.e. caffis, siopau trin gwallt a harddwch, ymwelwyr static, siopau elusenol, mewnlifiad brands, yn ddibynnol ar y sector gyhoeddus, nifer parcio.

Economi nos - e.e. dylanwad  myfyrwyr, diodydd isel eu pris, poblogaeth static, cyfryngau cymdeithasol, diwylliant cyn-yfed, dechrau tua 11.30p.m.

Heriau sy’n wynebu Aberystwyth

Lleihad yn nifer y myfyrwyr - mae 900 yn llai eleni. Y myfyrwyr yn mudo i fyny’r bryn oherwydd llety newydd i’r myfyrwyr. Mae lleihad o 900 o fyfyrwyr a 15 busnes yn methu yn golygu colled o £3.6m i’r economi lleol. Fe all dyfodiad Tesco a Marks & Spencer helpu, os yn ôl Mr Mackenzie Grieve y  ceir y cydgysylltiad cywir.

Beth yw’r datrysiad i’r broblem?

Mae rhaid rheoli’r dirywiad. Rhaid gwneud canol y dref i dyfu; ceisio cael busnesau di-fân-werthu; ond hefyd hyrwyddo Aberystwyth fel canolfan mân-werthu canolbarth Cymru.

Y prif faterion i hybu hyn yw: parcio, adeiladau gwag, marchnata a hyrwyddo;  cyfarfod a gweithio gyda busnesau eraill. Ffocws mwya’r Ardal Gwella Busnes yw cryfhau hygyrchedd a hwylustod o du mewn ac o amgylch y dref.

Rhai syniadau hyd yma:

Gosod  parth 1 a 2 o fewn canol y dref – gadewir allan y Brifysgol, yr Ysbyty, y Llyfrgell Genedlaethol.

Fe fydd y BID yn para am 5 mlynedd.

Bydd busnesau yn talu 1.25% o’u gwerth trethiannol ond bydd busnesau sydd â gwerth trethiannol llai na £6,000 yn talu dim.

Cael cydgysylltiad gyda Maes Parcio Dan Dre: cael parcio ychwanegol am awr, carden ffyddlondeb, Parcio a Theithio am ddim ar ddydd Sadwrn.

Defnyddio adeiladau gwag i hyrwyddo cynlluniau eiddo/siopau dros-dro. (pop-up).

Gwefan marchnata a hyrwyddo: e.e. cael byrddau hysbysu digidol ym maes parcio Dan Dre a chynnal digwyddiadau wedi eu cyd-drefnu.

Prynu ynni ar y cyd fel busnesau h.y. defnyddio’r un cwmni trydan.

Cefnogi digwyddiadau lleol, e.e. carnifal, adloniant haf, ffilmiau yn y castell.

Cardiau ffyddlondeb.


Awgrymwyd yn y fan hon fod y cynllun yn debyg i un Menter. Ond anghytunwyd gyda hyn gan ddweud y dylai hwn fod yn brif fenter i wella busnes yn Aberystwyth.

Amserlen y bleidlais

Hysbysiad o’r bleidlais – 14 Ionawr 2016;

Dosbarthu’r papurau pleidleisio – 28 Ionawr 2016;

Dyddiad y bleidlais – 25 Chwefror 2016.

Fe fydd y cyfan os bydd yn llwyddiant yn cael ei weithredu erbyn Ebrill 2016.

Dywedodd Mr.  Mackenzie-Grieve bod ‘cytundeb sylfaenol’ gyda Chyngor Ceredigion yn ymwneud â gwasanaethau mae’r Cyngor yn ei ddarparu ar hyn o bryd a byddai un tebyg gyda’r Cyngor Tref hefyd drwy ddarparu cefnogaeth hyd y gellir.

Dywedwyd gan un Aelod ei fod yn ffordd o ddod â phobl at ei gilydd ac i wneud rhywbeth sy’n cael ei hyrwyddo gyda Llywodraeth Cymru ynghyd â hyblygrwydd i siarad gyda’r Cyngor Sir. Gofynwyd gan Aelod - gyda materion parcio yn mynd i wella yn Dan Dre, pa gyfran o’r busnesau sydd wedi derbyn y neges glir rydym wedi ei glywed heno? Dywedwyd bod y rhan fwyaf wedi clywed amdano: y mae taflenni wedi mynd i holl fusnesau’r dref ond bod angen mynd o amgylch fwy o fusnesau eto.


Cafwyd trafodaeth fer yn dilyn ymadawiad Mr  Mackenzie-Grieve.

Cynigiodd y Cadeirydd y dylai’r Aelodau fynd i siarad gyda busnesau wyneb yn wyneb.

Cynigiodd Aelod y dylid yn yr un modd fynd o gwmpas y busnesau er mwyn cael mwy o bobl i arwyddo’r llythyrau o gefnogaeth i Parc Krönberg - a thrwy gael llwyddiant ar gais y Loteri i’r Parc  fe fyddai fwy o bobl yn dod i’r dre.

A PowerPoint presentation was given by Mr Chris Mackenzie-Grieve.


The statistical background of the night-time economy and daytime economy of the UK. By 2020, there will be 31% fewer shops on the street in general. Of every 1.2% consumers spend, costs has increased 2%.

Specific details about the Aberystwyth economy -

Daytime economy – e.g. cafés, hairdressers and beauty salons, static visitors, charity shops, influx of brands, reliant on the public sector, number of parking spaces.

Night-time economy - e.g. student influence, low-price drinks, static population, social media, ‘pre-loading’ culture, starting at around 11.30pm.

Challenges facing Aberystwyth

Decline in the number of students - 900 fewer this year. Students migrating up the hill due to the new student accommodation. A decline of 900 students and 15 failing businesses translated into a loss of £3.6m to the local economy. The arrival of Tesco and Marks & Spencer could help if the right connectivity is acquired, according to Mr Mackenzie-Grieve.

What is the solution to the problem?

The deterioration must be managed. We must grow the town centre; try to attract non-retail businesses; but also promote Aberystwyth as the retail centre for mid Wales.

The main issues to promote this are: parking, empty buildings, marketing and promotion; meeting and working with other businesses. The major focus of the Business Improvement District is to strengthen accessibility and convenience of the town centre and the surrounding areas.

Some ideas thus far:

           Setting zones 1 and 2 within the town centre - the University, Hospital and     

           National Library would be excluded.

The BID would continue for 5 years.

Businesses would pay 1.25% of the rateable value but businesses with a rateable value of less than £6,000 would pay nothing.

Having a connection to the Mill Street Car Park: additional parking for an hour, loyalty card, free Park and Ride on Saturdays.

Using the empty buildings to promote pop-up shops/premises plans.

A marketing and promotion website e.g. a digital noticeboard in the Mill Street car-park and holding events organised jointly.

Businesses to purchase energy jointly i.e. use the same electricity company.

Supporting local events e.g. carnival, summer entertainment, films at the Castle.

            Loyalty cards.


It was suggested at this point that the scheme was similar to the Menter scheme. But there was disagreement on this and it was said that this should be the main initiative to improve business in Aberystwyth.

Timescale of the ballot

Notification of ballot – 14 January 2016;

Distribution of ballot papers – 28 January 2016;

Date of ballot – 25 February 2016.

If successful, everything would be implemented by April 2016.

Mr Mackenzie-Grieve said that there was a ‘basic agreement’ with Ceredigion Council regarding the services the Council currently provided and there would be a similar agreement with the Town Council by providing support as far as possible.

One Member said that it was a way of bringing people together and to do something that is promoted by Welsh Government along with the flexibility to speak with the County Council. A Member enquired - with the improvement of parking issues in Mill Street, what proportion of the businesses had received the clear message we had heard this evening? It was said that the majority had heard of it: leaflets had been sent to all businesses in the town but that there was a need to go around more businesses.


A short discussion ensued after Mr Mackenzie-Grieve left.

The Chair proposed that Members should go and speak with businesses face to face.

A Member proposed that, similarly, we should go around businesses in order to get more people to sign the letters of support for Parc Krönberg - and with the success of the Lottery bid for the Parc, more people would come to the town.

  1. Datgan Diddordeb/Declaration of Interest



Cyn i'r cyfarfod ddechrau dymunodd y Cadeirydd drosglwyddo cydymdeimlad llwyr y pwyllgor i'r Maer, y Cyngh. Endaf Edwards ar farwolaeth ei frawd yng nghyfraith. Nododd y Cadeirydd hefyd bod y Cyngh. Brenda Haines wedi cael llawdriniaeth a dymunodd yn dda iddi ar ran y pwyllgor.

Before the meeting began the Chair wished to convey the committee’s sincere condolences with the Mayor, Cllr. Dr Endaf Edwards on the passing away of his brother in law. The Chair also noted that Cllr. Brenda Haines had undergone an operation and wished her well on behalf of the committee. 


Gwahoddwyd cynrychiolydd o Cycle Fest yn fyr rybudd i'r cyfarfod gan y Cadeirydd Cyllid. Rhoddwyd amlinelliad cryno o'r hyn i'w ddisgwyl ar gyfer y flwyddyn nesaf gyda'r 'Tour Series'. Cost cynnal y digwyddiad yn 2016 yw £66,000. Mae Cyngor Sir Ceredigion wedi cytuno i warantu'r digwyddiad a gweithredu fel lleoliad cynnal ar gyfer Tour Series 2016. Nodwyd ei bod hi'n beth da bod sir mor fach â Cheredigion yn cynnal digwyddiad o'r fath; a chael noddwyr lleol megis Cambrian Tyres. Yn y dyfodol mae'n bosibl y bydd Tesco a Premier Inn yn dod yn noddwyr. Y llynedd, fe gynhyrchodd  11,000 o ymwelwyr i Aberystwyth a chyfanswm  incwm net o rhwng £150,000 a £170,000. Mae Aberystwyth wedi bod yn un o fannau mwyaf poblogaidd y digwyddiad, a phe bai'n gallu denu Tour of Britain byddai'r incwm a gynhyrchir ar lefel uwch gan ei fod yn ddigwyddiad rhyngwladol. Rhoddwyd manylion y 8-9 diwrnod o'r gwahanol ddigwyddiadau sy'n cael eu trefnu ar gyfer y flwyddyn hon megis diwrnod hyrwyddo ar y Dydd Llun cyntaf; prawf-amser 10 milltir yng Nghwm Rheidol ar Ddydd Mercher; digwyddiad yn y DRWM yn y Llyfrgell Genedlaethol Ddydd Iau; y prif ddigwyddiad Ddydd Gwener; beicio mynydd yn Llanbadarn h.y. dilëydd deuol ar Gefn-Llan gyda gwobr ariannol o £1,000 - Byddai'n cynnwys 20 o feicwyr proffesiynol a 20 o feicwyr lleol yn defnyddio proses ddileu i'r rownd derfynol. Mae'r Brifysgol wedi bod yn awyddus i gymryd rhan trwy ganiatau defnyddio Bryn Amlwg.

Ddydd Sul, 'Sportive' y Sul a fyddai'n dechrau ac yn gorffen ar y Band-stand. Ar ŵyl y banc mae digwyddiadau yn cael eu trefnu gan Ddigwyddiadau Dyfi ar y cyd gyda Summit Cycles a Dydd Mawrth, mae Beicio Cymru yn cynnal gweithgareddau ymgysylltu ar lawr gwlad gyda'r Brifysgol ym Mlaendolau fydd yn cynnwys sesiynau sgiliau ar gyfer pobl ifanc.

Gofynnodd y Cadeirydd at bwy fyddai'r Cyngor Tref yn cyfeirio'i gyfraniad ariannol? - Dylid ei gyfeirio at Gyngor Sir Ceredigion. Nododd Aelod bod croeso mawr i'r digwyddiad y llynedd yn y DRWM a bod y ffilm a ddangoswyd yn hynod ddiddorol i'r cyhoedd. Gofynnodd Aelod beth arall y maen nhw'n ei wneud yn ystod y flwyddyn. Mae llawer o ddigwyddiadau llai yn cael eu trefnu gan yr Ŵyl Feicio trwy gydol y flwyddyn.
Nododd Aelod, bod Aberystwyth yn sicr yn fan da ar gyfer y math hwn o ddigwyddiad.

Ar ôl i'r cynrychiolydd adael, cafwyd trafodaeth. Nododd Cyng. Ceredig Davies, y mwyaf y byddwn yn ei ymrwymo fel Cyngor Tref y lleiaf y byddwn yn gallu ei roi i eraill.

Nododd aelod mewn ymateb, y byddai danos yr un ymrwymiad yn atal Ceredigion rhag dweud na fyddent yn parhau i gefnogi yn y dyfodol a
thrwy beidio â dangos yr un lefel o gefnogaeth, byddai'n cyfaddawdu Ceredigion.

Cynigiwyd a PHENDERFYNWYD cytuno dros dro i ariannu £10,000. Dymunodd y Cyngh. Alun Williams bod cofnod yn cael ei wneud na wnaeth bleidleisio gan ei fod yn Aelod Cabinet o Gyngor Sir Ceredigion a chan hynny bod gwrthdaro buddianau.

A delegate from Cycle Fest was invited on short-notice to the meeting by the Chair of Finance.  A brief outline was given of what to expect for next year with the Tour Series. The cost of hosting the event for 2016 is £66,000. Ceredigion County Council has agreed to underwrite the event and to act as host venue for the 2016 Tour Series. It was noted that it was good to have a county as small as Ceredigion to host such an event; and to have local sponsors such as Cambrian Tyres. In future it may be possible that Tesco and Premier Inn may become sponsors. Last year it generated 11,000 visitors to Aberystwyth and a total net income of  between £150,000 and £170,000. Aberystwyth has been one of the event’s most popular places, and if it were to attract Tour of Britain the income it would generate would be of higher level because it’s an international event. An itinerary for the 8-9 day was given of different events that were being organised for this year such as promotional day on the first Monday; 10 mile time-trial in Cwm Rheidol on Wednesday; an event in the DRWM in the National Library on Thursday; the main event on Friday; Mountain biking in Llanbadarn i.e. Dual eliminator on Cefn-Llan with a £1,000 prize money – It would involve 20 professionals and 20 locals with a process of elimination to the final. The University is keen to be involved by utilising Bryn Amlwg.

On Sunday a ‘Sunday sportive’ that would start and finish on the Band-Stand. On the Bank Holiday there is events organised by Dyfi Events in collaboration with Summit Cycles and on Tuesday, Welsh cycling is hosting a grass-root involvement with the University at Blaendolau constituting skills sessions for young people.

It was asked by the Chair who would the Town Council direct it’s financial contribution to? – It was to be directed to Ceredigion County Council.

It was noted by a Member that the event in the DRWM was most welcomed and that the film that was shown was immensely interesting to the general public.

A member asked what else do they do during the year. Many smaller events are being organised by Cycle Fest throughout the year.

It was noted by a Member, that Aberystwyth was without doubt a good place for this sort of event.

After the delegate left, a discussion ensued. It was noted by Cllr. Ceredig Davies that the more we commit as a Town Council the less we can give to others.

A member noted in response that on the other hand, by showing the same commitment it would stop Ceredigion  saying that they would not continue supporting in the future. By not showing the same level of support it would compromise Ceredigion.

It was             proposed and RESOLVED to provisionally agree to fund £10,000.

Cllr Alun Williams wished it to be recoded that he didn’t vote because he is a Cabinet Member of Ceredigion County Council’s and thereby there is a conflict of interest.


  1. Derbyn Cyfrifon mis Tachwedd 2015/To Receive November Accounts2015
  2. i) Hysbysodd y Cadeirydd y pwyllgor ei bod wedi gofyn i Gronfa Bensiwn Dyfed, faint yw cost y diffyg yn y cynlluniau pensiwn? Adroddwyd y gallent ddod i gytundeb i dalu £31,000 i dalu'r swm hwn i gyd mewn un cyfandaliad; neu dalu taliad misol o £160 am 16 blynedd. Cynghorodd y Cadeirydd y byddai'r mater hwn yn hongian dros y Cyngor Tref. Awgrymwyd gan Aelod pe bai taliad o £31,000 yn dod o'r arbedion a wnaed o gyflog staff, pan oedd y Chynghorwyr yn gwneud y gwaith yn ystod y cyfnod hwnnw yn wirfoddol a gydag arbedion yn cael ei wneud ar y swydd dros dro byddai'n ddoeth talu'r cyfandaliad. PENDERFYNWYD gofyn i'r Cadeirydd gysylltu â Chronfa Bensiwn Dyfed am eglurhad: pe bai taliad o £31,000 yn cael ei wneud, nad oes tebygoliaeth y bydd y swm hwnnw yn newid a bydd y mater yn dod i ben unwaith ac am byth.
  3. i) The Chair notified the committee that she had asked the Dyfed Pension Fund, how much is the cost of the deficit on the pension schemes? It was reported that they could come to an agreement to pay £31,000 to pay this off in one lump-sum; or to pay a monthly payment of £160 for 16 year. The Chair advised that this matter would be hanging over the Town Council. It was suggested by a Member that if the payment of £31,000 came out of the savings made on staff salary, with Councillors doing the work during that period voluntarily and with savings made on the temporary job it would be prudent to pay the lump sum off. It was RESOLVED to ask the Chair to go back to Dyfed Pension Funds for clarification: if a payment of £31,000 is made, there will be no likelihood of that sum to change and the matter will be closed once and for all.


  1. ii) Pwysleisiodd y Cadeirydd yn gryf ar i’r Cynghorwyr ddod ag unrhyw brosiectau y maen nhw'n dymuno gwario arnynt, cyn ddiwedd mis Mawrth. Yn yr un modd roedd y Cadeirydd eisiau mynd ar ôl biliau sy'n weddill i'w talu cyn ddiwedd mis Mawrth.
  2. ii) The Chair emphasised profusely for Councillors to bring any projects that they may wish to spend on, before the end of March. Likewise the Chair wanted to chase any outstanding bills to be paid before the end of March.

PENDERFYNWYD llunio rhestr o'r holl waith gofynnol ar yr holl asedau sy'n ymwneud â meysydd chwarae.

Williams y byddai Ysbyty Bronglais yn gyfrifol am godi’r plac ac am unrhyw waith cynnal a chadw yn y dyfodol. PENDERFYNWYD y byddai Cyng Jeff Smith yn arwain wrth gael dyfynbris gan James Memorials ac wedi'i ddirprwyo i wario hyd at £495.

Brendan Somers yn arwain ar y mater a gwirfoddolodd Cyng Mair Benjamin yn garedig i ddod a glanhau am 2 awr bob dydd Gwener yn y cyfamser.

It was noted by the Chair of Finance that this was delegated to the staffing panel. It was asked if it was still the wish of the committee to have a cleaner for 2 hours. It was RESOLVED that Cllr. Brendan Somers would lead on the matter and Cllr. Mair Benjamin kindly volunteered to come and clean for 2 hours every Friday in the interim.

  1. Ceisiadau am wariant/Requests for funding

Roedd cais wedi dod gan Gôr Gobaith trwy’r Cyngh. Alun Williams i blannu coeden o flaen y Llyfrgell y Dre. Roedd John Hadlow wedi canfod plot yn y sgwâr glas ac yn gobeithio y gallai coeden geirios gael ei phlannu ym mis Ionawr. Byddai'n costio tua £600. Mae Côr Gobeithio yn dymuno cael canolbwynt ar gyfer digwyddiadau ac mae wedi codi rhan fwyaf yr arian. Maen nhw'n gofyn a fyddai'r Cyngor yn cytuno i warantu'r swm sy'n weddill ganddynt i fyny at uchafswm o £200. PENDERFYNWYD gwneud hyn.

A request by Côr Gobaith had come through Cllr. Alun Williams for a tree to be planted in front of the Town Library. John Hadlow had idenitified a plot in the grass-square and hope a cherry-tree could be planted in January. It would cost around £600. Côr Gobaith wishes the plaque to be a focal point for events and have raised most of the money. They are asking if the Council would agree to underwrite the amount they’ve got outstanding up to a maximum of £200. It was RESOLVED to do this.


PENDERFYNWYD derbyn y Cofnodion gyda’r newidiadau blaenorol.

It was RESOLVED to accept the Minutes with the foregoing amendments.

Alun Williams replied by noting that discussions were continually underway on balancing the budget and it was not possible to respond to demands for every budgetary requirement. The County Council was making strong representations to the Local Government Minister.
