Our Danescourt Community Association has submitted a strong objection to the proposed development. You can read it here. It is a good example of an objection letter that you might wish to refer to if you are planning to send in your own objection.
The developers have now submitted their planning application, details of which have been posted on the Council’s web site here. We’re in the process of preparing a petition against this development, which will be available for online signature on this web site, and circulating locally on paper. Details of how best to register your objection, and some guidance on how to do this, will be posted here soon. There is a lot of local opposition to this development, which proposes to destroy highly valued local woodland and open space. Two previous attempts to develop on this land have failed to gain planning permission and the case against development is now stronger than before.
Here’s an A4 document you can download, print and put up in your window to show your support for the campaign to Save Our Woods.
PMG 3 Limited have given notice that they intend to apply for planning permission to develop 40 houses on land at De Braose Close. This planning application has not yet been submitted. Prior to this, the developers are obliged to seek feedback from the local community. The deadline for this feedback is 20th July.
We recommend that if you oppose this development you submit an email or letter making it clear that you object to the proposal, and giving a summary of your reasons. This will just be summarised by the developer when they submit their planning application.
Once that happens, you should submit a much more detailed objection directly to Cardiff Council. And at that time there will also be a petition which we hope you will sign. Watch this space for more details in due course.
In the meantime, please send your short objection to Mr Andrew Crompton, Development Director at PMG Limited. You can email this to him directly at andrewcrompton [at] pmg-plc [dot] com or write to him at Unit 2a, Oak Tree Court, Mulberry Drive, Cardiff Gate Business Park, Cardiff CF23 8RS.
