Please help us take action on the Cardiff Council Local Development Plan PDF Print E-mail

We believe that building 10,000 homes along the Llantrisant Road - 7,500 between St Fagans and Radyr, 2,500 north of the M4 and South of Creigiau - will create misery from sunrise to sunset and particularly in the morning rush hour on the Llantrisant Road through Llandaff. The Council has no transport infrastructure plan to deal with this problem other than a vague suggestion of bus corridors.

Danescourt Community Association has been advised that the Council is more likely to take note of a large number of personal objections to its Preferred LDP Strategy than it would to a large number of names attached to a petition.

The Association has therefore prepared a standard response, as a Word document, which systematically objects to the Council's plans.

Each resident is urged to download the Association's prepared standard response, add their contact details to the first page, save the document and then email it as an attachment to a short note to [email protected]

Alternatively, any resident who either disagrees with any part of the Association's standard response or wishes to augment some part of it can easily do so as it is a 'Word' document.

To do this, download and save the document, amend it where desired, add your contact details to the first page, save the document and email it as an attachment to a short note to [email protected]

Either way, it is essential to send the email to the Council no later than 14th December 2012 as any comments received after that date will not be considered. It is hoped that by this process each resident with access to a computer will have a simple means of making their views known to the Council.

You are urged to do this for your community.

Bridge from Radyr to Hailey Park

The disused railway bridge over the Taff, formerly on a loop line linking the old Radyr Sidings with the Radyr to Queen Street line, is being converted to a footbridge linking the Taff Trail in Hailey Park with the path between Radyr Court Road and the development on Radyr Sidings.

Work began in October and should be complete by early February 2013.

Council Plans to Build 7,500 Homes On Our Doorstep! PDF Print E-mail

Councillors in Cardiff have approved plans for the largest expansion of the city for more than half a century, with 45,400 new homes being built by 2026.

The biggest single proposal is for 7,500 homes in a new suburb west of Pentrebane to Radyr.

Danescourt Community Association are concerned at the proposal and will be pro-active in its objection to building so many homes on its doorstep, creating a new estate on such a scale, having a major impact on those living nearby. We also oppose building on green areas and will vigorously campaign against it. We hope to join other interested parties or groups who are also affected.

Details of the plans and and how to get involved can be found on the Council's website
