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.

The first PACT (Police And Communities Together) meeting for nearly 18 months was held on February 6th and it was attended by both our local Councillors. 

The Danescourt issues that were agreed to be looked at are 

  • Beale Close Parking.
  • A litter pick on the estate around recently cleared Spooky Lane and Radyr Court Road.
  • The person that describes himself as the wood warden who is pulling logs across the paths in Radyr Woods, blocking them. 
  • Parking on the bus stop at north end of Restways Court making it difficult for passengers to get on and off the buses. 
  • Parking opposite the bus stop by the play area.

PACT meetings are scheduled for the following dates and they will be held at St John's Hall at 7pm

  • Tuesday 3rd April 2018
  • Tuesday 29th May 2018

If there are any issues, it is an excellent opportunity to attend and discuss them.

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."
