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.
