Following the submission of amended plans by the developers, we’ve decided to run a new petition to counter any claims that these updated plans address the concerns of the local community. They are largely unchanged, with a small reduction in the number of dwellings, but proposing to house the same number of people and destroy the woods and open land that is marked for protection in the Cardiff Local Development Plan.
So please sign the petition, even if you signed the previous one. Every signature adds weight to our objection. With the pandemic, we can only run this as an e-petition, so click on this link to enter your details and digitally sign the petition.
We have to submit the petition at least a week before the application comes before the Planning Committee. We don’t know when that will be (not expected before April), so please let you friends and neighbours know about the new petition and encourage them to sign it now.
You may have noticed that new planning notices have been put up around the woods and meadow. On 4th February the developers submitted a revised set of plans, reducing the number of dwelling to 36, in response to “various discussions” they have held with council officers. We are checking with our local councillors and the council how this affects the status of existing objections and our original petition. The proposed development remains essentially the same, with the same level of destruction of woodland, removal of trees, incursion through the wood with a new road, and the replacement of the meadow with housing, roads and parking.
We’ll update this site and send out via the mailing list recommendations regarding further local action once we have reviewed all the revised documents and received advice from the council and our councillors.
Many thanks for the continued support of all those who wish to protect this area and uphold the council’s policy of maintaining green spaces along Cardiff’s river corridors.
