Message from the Leader

Page updated on: 18/03/2022

Welcome to Carmarthenshire – one of the safest, most beautiful and vibrant counties in Wales. A county with something for everyone – from a sweeping coastline with miles of golden sands and historic market towns, to modern shopping centres, a state-of-the-art theatre, award winning attractions and thriving tourism, sports, arts and leisure industries.

Beautiful environment, first class facilities, award winning attractions, excellent standards in education, good transport links, and plenty to see and do makes for a better quality of life in Carmarthenshire. There is a diverse mix of bustling urban towns, rural villages and sleepy havens. It remains one of the safest places to live in the country, crime levels are very low and the Dyfed Powys police force area as a whole is the safest region in all of the UK.

Attractions in the county include the UK’s newest racecourse at Ffos Las, Blue Flag beaches including Wales’ largest stretch of golden sands at Cefn Sidan, the Jack Nicklaus designed Machynys Golf Course, Parc y Scarlets, National Botanic Garden of Wales, the Dylan Thomas Boathouse, the Millennium Coastal Park, Burry Port Marina, and the Gwili Steam Railway.

For a fantastic place to live, work and visit – look no further than Carmarthenshire!

Cllr. Emlyn Dole
Leader of the Council
