Carmarthenshire County Council says it will extend its support to the National Botanic Garden of Wales until March 2020.
Members of the executive board have agreed to extend the authority’s £1.35m interest free loan to the Garden and allow the continued occupation of farmhouses, currently leased by the council, for two more years.
