‘Danescourt Park’ – Construction of 2 Ponds PDF Print E-mail
Cardiff City Council will start the construction of 2 Ponds in the ‘Danescourt Park’ – a green field / park bordered by Llantrisant Road (from the Radyr Filling Station to Heol Isaf), a path from Heol Isaf to Radyr Comprehensive School, and the Danescourt Estate. There are paths from Heol Isaf to Herbert March Close and Buckley Close .
The double ponds are on the right hand side of this diagram near the gardens of Herbert March Close. The temporary vehicle only access situated within the precinct of a Toucan crossing on Llantrisant Road will be made permanent for Council Parks maintenance or emergency access.
The above diagram also shows the ponds around the Llantrisant Road / Heol Isaf junction that are part of the Plasdŵr surface water scheme managed by Redrow under Cardiff Council planning application  21/00645/MJR. This is the only information online about the Council ponds and is not part of any planning application.
Cardiff Council have stated that they are acting under their permitted powers 
to disperse the highway surface water as Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water sewers will not have the capacity to accept it. The ponds capacity is stated as coping with 100 year plus 40% .
About half the park has already been fenced off as a construction site, and the access road and ponds excavation will begin soon.
 
There is no information on the Council website other than the Redrow planning application for this scheme for Attenuation Ponds or Basin.
 
This Danescourt Community Association has posed 20 Questions formally to the Council and will be publishing their responses. Clarification has also been requested as to what permitted powers have been used for this scheme and why was there no consultation nor advance notice. 
 
Danescourt Community Association PDF Print E-mail

The Danescourt Community Association, formerly the Danescourt Residents Association has the interests of the residents of Danescourt at it heart. It continues the original aims and over the last 30 years, it has supported, lobbied for, objected to, and been the voice of the residents of Danescourt for many issues.

The DCA also contributes to the North West Cardiff Group (NWCG) along with Creigiau and Pentyrch Community Council, St Fagan’s Community Council, Radyr & Morganstown Society and the Llandaff Civic Society and has links with the Cardiff Civic Society. The NWCG, is a group of mostly professional or retired professional people that want Cardiff to be the best city it can be. Over the last few years it has put in many hours with suggestions and objections to the Local Development Plan, proposals for the metro and is in a constant battle to get the highway and transportation infrastructure improved for the housing developments that are taking place in the north west of Cardiff.

If you would like to play a part in your community please come and join us on the third Monday of every month at St John’s Hall, Danescourt at 8pm. You do not have to join the committee but if you feel you could offer your time please come along. We regularly have the Councillors in attendance and there are often updates from the North West Cardiff Group and the Police And Communities Together (PACT) meetings.

DCA Chair

Welsh Water sewerage site investigation at the old Radyr Quarry site accessed from DeBraose Close PDF Print E-mail
Welsh Water are building a stone road into the wood to access the Radyr Quarry site for their machinery, removing a tree and some branches as necessary. This work is not connected with the Taff Housing planning application for 36 dwellings accessed by extending DeBraose Close.
 
The investigative work started on 6 April 2021 and last four weeks; this may lead to the construction of pipework to connect with the sewerage system on the Llandaff North side in about a year’s time, and is due to the Plasdŵr development.  Locked gates will be installed to prevent unauthorised access.
 
The details are available on the Welsh Water website, click on the area highlighted.
