The Danescourt Community Association  was formed over 20 years go with the specific aim of protecting the interests of the residents of Danescourt.

We wanted to defend and further the amenities and services available in Danescourt.  Over the years we have successfully lobbied and spoken on behalf of the residents.

Throughout the year the DCA has been involved in a number of issues and we will continue through 2017. If you would like to play a part in our community, please come and join us at the meetings on third Monday of every month at St John's Hall at 8pm. You do not have to join the committee, but if you feel you could offer your time then this would be welcomed.

Radyr Court Road Embankment Stabilisation PDF Print E-mail

Work to stabilise embankment in Radyr Court Road (Spooky Lane) to start towards the end of February

 

The Council have identified a short area to the northern side of Radyr Court Road (Pedestrian section between Danescourt Way and the river Taff) that is eroding, causing the ground, trees and vegetation to become unstable.

In order to make this area safe it is proposed to construct a small wall at the base of the slope and re-profile the slope.  This will require the trees and vegetation to be cut back in the affected area prior to the work, the area will be re-planted on completion of the ground works.

To ensure that the scheme has the least impact on the local environment, independent Ecologists and Arboricultural Consultants have been consulted and their recommendations, including replanting trees, have been included in the scheme.

It is anticipated that the tree works will be carried out toward the end of February, so as to prevent any issues with nesting birds.

Improvements to Play Area PDF Print E-mail

Following a meeting between local councillor Sean Driscoll and officials from Cardiff Council we can report that repairs to the fence around the play area on Danescourt Way/Mathew Walk are imminent and that further improvements can be expected later this year.  "The panels required to complete the perimeter fence line are in our depot and will be installed shortly and as soon as the ground has dried out  / is accessible by vehicles."

However we will have to wait for gate to be replaced, "owing to pressures on the revenue budget for playground equipment, it is unlikely that this will be replaced in this financial year, we would however look to install early in 18/19. As a temporary measure we will bridge the gap between the galvanised gate post and end wooden upright."

It's not just the fence and the gate that will see improvements "we anticipate replacing the cradle swings that nearing end of life and the four seat swing , which is also nearing end of life with a one basket, two flat seat combination swing unit early in the new financial year."
