Welcome

This site has been created to coordinate opposition to the proposal to build 40 or more houses on land between Danescourt and the river Taff, lying between Radyr Woods and Radyr Court Road.  A formal planning application has not yet been submitted, but the owners of the land have hired a consultancy firm to prepare their application, and its submission is imminent.

The green shaded area indicates woodland, which occupies more than half the site that will be filled with 40 or more houses.

This web site will be updated with news of this application, and with details for those in the local community who wish to oppose plans to build on this much loved open space.  Two planning applications have been previously submitted for development on this land in recent years – in 2004 and more recently in 2014.  In both cases, the council’s planning committee rejected the applications.  In both cases the applicants appealed against the council’s decision, and in both cases the appeal was rejected.

We are confident that the widespread opposition to this renewed attempt to destroy land that has been designated in the Local Development Plan as protected River Corridor will prevail once again.

Please visit the news page of this site regularly, as details of how to voice your objections will be published here as soon as a formal planning application is submitted.

If you have any questions, or have news relevant to this site, please do not hesitate to contact us at info@saveourwoods.org.
