Link Llandaff and Llandaff North? No thanks, says DCA PDF Print E-mail

Danescourt and Llandaff North should stay separate according to the latest review of controversial plans to link the two communities electorally.

The original plans would mean that voters in Llandaff – which contains Danescourt - and in Llandaff North, would be part of one ward, sharing four councillors for the City and County of Cardiff between them.

The Danescourt Community Association opposes that plan, saying that there don’t appear to be any community based reasons for the proposal.

The DCA points out that the two communities are effectively separated by the river Taff and, to a lesser extent, by the railway.  The only road link is the river bridge.

Now the Local Government Boundary Commission for Wales, which is reviewing the electoral arrangements across Wales, has accepted these arguments and its final proposals say that the existing Llandaff and Llandaff North divisions should be kept.

Danescourt Grumbles ... PDF Print E-mail

Danescourt is a great place to live but it does have its problems.

Let us know what’s bothering you.

David Ross, a pensioner living in Rossetti Close, is concerned about the parking in Beale Close near the path to the railway station. He reckons that the half dozen or so cars parked there daily – perfectly legally – cause a problem for other road users.

"If you drive past mid-morning you have to take the corner on the wrong side of the road,” said Mr Ross, aged 79. “The council says it can’t do anything because there hasn’t been an accident!”. Mr Ross, who’s lived in Beale Close since he first moved to Danescourt 24 years ago, thinks that it’s stupid to allow parking on that spot. "People arrive late for their trains and they park wherever they can”, he says. “If there were 'No Parking signs' or double yellow lines would stop it.”
