Discussions have reached an “impasse situation” when it comes to sports club requirements and the creation of a new well-being centre in Lampeter, the town’s county councillor has said.
Cllr Hag Harries said this week that discussions with a local netball club and officers working on the new centre, taking over the previous leisure centre site, highlighted that the “aspirations” of organisers and the well-being centre “cannot be satisfied.”
An update on the plans was brought to a meeting of healthier communities overview and scrutiny last month and Cllr Harries reiterated his concerns at a meeting on Wednesday, October 20.
Cllr Harries, who said he was usually of a “sunny disposition” when it came to council matters said he was “finding it very hard to see a way out of this now,” adding the reduction in sports hall court size had not been known about early in the planning stage.
The smaller size meant full netball matches, nor other team sports, could not be held inside the centre, he said.
“We hope that things will work out and discussion well get things worked out, but we are getting to an impasse situation unless some compromise is reached,” said Cllr Harries.
Committee chairman Cllr Bryan Davies said communications continued, adding “it’s really important that we do keep speaking until the very end.”
