Many of you will have heard about Cardiff Council's proposed Local Development Plan (LDP), now is your chance to let the council know your feelings on the LDP.
The plan provides for up to 7650 new homes in Pentrebane and Creigau. These areas are shown in red cross hatching on this map. You can view the full map here. If these houses are built there will be a significant increase to the congestion on Llantrisant Road in the morning and evening. Although the Council has recognised that problems will ensue, it does not have any firm plan to deal with them and cannot guarantee that any steps will have been taken to address the problems prior to the construction of all these houses. Clearly the result on Llantrisant road in the vicinity of Danescourt is likely to be significant.
You have until Tuesday 26th November 2013 to let the council have you views on this. The documents relating to the plan can be viewed on the Cardiff Council web site or you can inspect them at the Cardiff Council's Planning Offices (County Hall, Atlantic Wharf, Cardiff and City Hall, Cathays Park), Monday to Friday between 8.30am and 4.30pm, and at all public libraries.
You can attend a public meeting which will include a presentation and discussion at Plasmawr High School, Pentrebane Road, Fairwater - Tuesday 12th November 2013, 6.30 to 8.00pm. Places to be booked in advance, e-mail [email protected] or tel (029) 20873461).
