Noticeboard

  • Waste and recycling collection

    Collection days and times are changing across Cardiff during February 2020. Radyr & Morganstown changed to a Tuesday collection from Tuesday 23 February 2021.

    Tuesday 2 March: Black bins, green recycling sacks and brown food waste caddies.

    Tuesday 9 March: Green recycling sacks and brown food waste caddies.

    Garden waste collections are currently suspended over the winter. The next Green bin collection has now been confirmed as 23 March 2021.

    The blue bin glass collection scheme remains suspended, please include all glass in your green recycling bags.

    See Cardiff Council’s website for the latest information about future collection dates or to order a delivery of green recycling bags whilst Radyr Library remains closed.

  • Public Transport

    From 20 December 2020, when Wales entered level 4 restrictions, all people must stay at home, except for very limited purposes. This also means that public transport should only be used for essential journeys, for example for caring responsibility or for work purposes where people cannot work from home.

    The Welsh Government has made it a legal requirement to wear a three-layer, non-medical, face covering on public transport, which includes taxis. While the vast majority of people will be able to wear a face covering, some will be exempt. These include children under the age of 11 years old, and people with certain medical conditions. A full list of exemptions can be found in the Welsh Government Coronavirus FAQs.

    Cardiff Bus has now returned to a full timetable following the Christmas and New Year amendments. Here is a link to the substantive 63 bus timetable.

  • Radyr Library

    Radyr Library was closed again from 21 December 2020 by Cardiff Council to help reduce the spread of Coronavirus.

    Some library services including the popular “Click & Collect” can be accessed from the 4 central hubs that remain open by making an appointment. More information can be found on the Library Facebook page.

    The Web Team are seeking clarity on local  access to be able to collect green recycling and food waste bags whilst our local library is closed.

  • Railway works in Radyr & Morganstown

    Transport for Wales (TfW) is due to start on electrifying the Valleys Lines, with significant work centred on the Mound Field in Morganstown and also at Radyr Station.

    A planning application has now been submitted for a new bridge over the railway at Gelynis Farm. Details of this and the February newsletter to residents from TfW can be found in the new section on Local Planning matters by the RMA. The Community Council are also looking at this matter.

  • Development of the Local Development Plan

    The Local Development Plan (LDP) for Cardiff is now under the process of being reviewed by Cardiff Council. An initial submission on the process has been made by the RMA and both the RMA and Community Council are now starting the process of reviewing the content of the LDP. Read more about the review process.

  • Llantrisant Road Roadworks

    Changes to the Heol Isaf junction with Llantrisant Road are now complete. The roundabout has been replaced by a four-way signal controlled junction and the carriageway has been widened to create new dedicated bus and cycle lanes.

    The next phase of work along Llantrisant Road will include the removal of Clos Parc Radur’s roundabout, a 4-way signal junction and widening of the road at this point for new pedestrian walkways, bus and cycle lanes. Plasdŵr estimate that this work will start in January 2021 and be complete by Summer 2022.

  • Coronavirus Alerts

    We are aware that businesses are responding to the wider Coronavirus situation in different ways. We are updating our Directory as new information is received.

    In-person acts of worship at Radyr Methodist Church remain suspended for the time being, but services and bible studies have moved online. Christ Church, Radyr and St John’s, Danescourt are also only holding public worship online until public health advice changes.

    Postcards aimed at providing help for vulnerable people in R&M available.

    Do you need help?  There is a phone number to ring 07513 187 930 or an email to use if you need help with shopping, collecting prescriptions etc. Read more about the CommUNITY scheme.

  • Royal Mail disruption

    The Cardiff North West Delivery Office is closed following the flooding caused by storm Dennis. Over Christmas, the Web Team have learned that this is now to become a permanent closure. We are still seeking further information from Royal Mail on what implications this has for our access to postal services.

    Can we remind you that collecting packages from Lisvane Sorting Office is not your only option. You can also phone up and arrange for re-delivery at a time that is mutually convenient, or even arrange to collect the package from Radyr Post Office. The more people who request these services the more evidence we will have to re-instate a more local Sorting Office.

    Full details of the effects of this closure can be seen in our article on the after-effects of the storm.
