Cardiff Council implementing Woodland Trust nature recovery recommendations

Some more good news received today. Cardiff Council has endored the recommendations of the Woodland Trust to promote nature recovery in Wales. Among the five recommendations for Local Authorities is this one:

  • In urban areas, protect woods and trees and associated semi-natural habitats, and support active conservation management through rigorous application of Planning Policy Wales and Natural Resources Wales (NRW) guidance to reduce pressure on nature.

This recommendation seems particularly pertinent to the land near Danescourt that has been threatened by planning applications. This comes as a timely reminder, if needed, to the members of the Planning Committee to see through their intention to reject the planning application when they meet on 11th January.
