DCA Supports the New Mothers and Toddlers Group PDF Print E-mail

Following a committee meeting it was agreed to present the Mothers and Toddlers Group with £100 towards the setting up costs. As Chair, I went to a busy group of mothers and toddlers led by Donna Wilson (centre), on Wednesday and handed over the cheque. We wish the group success and that the mothers and toddlers of Danescourt will benefit from these meetings.

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.

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

By the time you read this the celebration weekend for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee will be over, a damp memory.

However you might still be thinking of the community feeling that the celebrations inspired.

Your road, close, neighbours or the whole of Danescourt may be your community. It will include people of all ages such as children, busy parents, and those who are retired.

The Danescourt Community Association is here to support the Danescourt community and here are some of our successes:

• We wrote to Enterprise Inns about the poor condition of the fabric of the Radyr Court public house - Action was taken by them to improve things.

• We put pressure on our councillors to get a bus information sign installed in the bus stop near Restways, which was the only shelter without a sign. - It has been done.

• We were active with the councillors and the police during the time when there was a lot of antisocial behaviour around the shops and this improved considerably.

• We asked for dropped kerbs around the estate to help disabled people and pushchair users. -These have been installed

• We successfully opposed the granting of a licence to sell alcohol at the Coop shop which is part of the garage.

• We successfully opposed the planning application for a large residential care home just below the top roundabout. The objection was on the grounds of traffic impact onto an already busy main road.

Currently we are pursuing the following:

• The provision of a bus shelter at the top of Heol Seddon.

• The DCA has offered a contribution towards the provision of speed information signs (like those by the Radyr Scout Hall) to be located by the school.

We meet on the third Monday of the month at St John's Hall at 8pm.

Our councillors are regular attenders and are always happy to listen to any issues we want to raise. They are also pleased to hear from residents who have come along with a specific issue. However you do not need to have a specific issue to come to our meetings. The Committee is always pleased to welcome you to come and hear what is being discussed.

It would be great to continue the Diamond Jubilee community spirit.  So if you have any pictures of the jubilee celebrations on Danescourt please send them in so we can put them on the website.

We look forward to seeing you.

Edgar Gibbs
