  • Llantrisant Road Roadworks

    The latest update on roadworks from Plasdŵr was published on 8 December 2023:

    In summary:

    The new permanent lights outside Clos Parc Radur are expected to be switched on and fully functional before the start of the Christmas break on 22 December. Once the permanent lights are switched on, all temporary traffic lights will be removed.

    Walters will continue working along Llantrisant Road planting the verges and tidying up, but the road will be fully operational while they complete these finishing touches. Some road barriers will remain in place on the filter lanes which will turn in to future development parcels for the foreseeable future until these areas are developed.

    Works on Pentrebane Road are currently expected to begin in early 2024, timings still TBC.

    For any issues with temporary lights please contact the traffic management provider on 01633 853 300.

  • Railway works in Radyr & Morganstown

    Transport for Wales (TfW) have started on works to upgrade the Valleys Lines including electrification, with significant work centred on the Mound Field in Morganstown and also at Radyr Station.

    Late evening and weekend services through Radyr Station (including services on the City Line, the main Valley Line into Cardiff and services up the valleys from Radyr) may be disrupted with some Rail Replacement Bus services running using Radyr Station as an interchange hub for these replacement bus services – resulting in decreased rail options and increased rail replacement bus traffic through the village whilst this work is carried out.

    This week (w/b 21 February 2022) some residents in Morganstown have been notified by letter from TfW that works will be commencing to create capacity for Road-Rail vehicles to access the tracks near Gelynis Farm. This will include some night works but as yet we have still not been notified of an out-of-hours contact for TfW. The Web Team are still seeking clarity on this matter from TfW.

  • Development of the Cardiff Local Development Plan

    August 2023 – The draft strategy for Cardiff’s Revised Local Development Plan is out for consultation. Make your views heard on this stage by 5 October 2023. Read more in our article on the LDP or visit the official consultation page at https://cardiffldp.consultation.ai/

    February 2023 – The next stage is consultation on the Preferred Strategy which will set out the preferred level of housing and jobs growth for the plan and the spatial strategy to deliver this growth. It will also identify those Key Policies which will inform the preparation of a Deposit Plan. The Preferred Strategy will now be considered by Cabinet and Council later than anticipated in 2023, with consultation likely to be in the Summer of 2023.

    August 2022 – Due to a delay in the release of Census data required as part of the basis for the LDP, the process of preparing the Revised LDP is running behind the originally published schedule. The consultation on strategic options is still showing on the Consultation Website as scheduled for a 10 week consultation November 2022 – February 2023 but we are yet to have this confirmed as current by Council Officers.

    April 2022 – The Radyr and Morganstown Local Development Group (RMLDG) have circulated a leaflet to over 6,000 houses raising awareness of the issues raised by a revised LDP and some of the candidate sites currently under consideration.

    July 2021 – The RMA have submitted their response to the Draft Vision, Issues and Objectives for the revised LDP. Read more about the review process.
