Radyr’s last remaining green space under threat

Cardiff Council are revising their Local Development Plan (LDP) and the proposals could very possibly lead to the loss of all the fields between Pant Tawel Lane and Rhydlafar.

Stage 2 of the Replacement LDP “Strategic Options” is out for consultation until 8 February 2022 and seeks residents’ views on options to increase the currently proposed numbers of jobs and houses in Cardiff. Any of the options could include adding the green spaces off Pant Tawel Lane to the ‘candidate site register’ for future development.

The recently formed Radyr and Morganstown Local Development Group, made up of concerned residents, have submitted a response to Cardiff Council challenging the justification for any increase in the current predicted housing requirements.

Please see the group’s webpage for more information and their response to Cardiff Council. Please also consider making YOUR views known by responding to the Consultation.

The Radyr and Morganstown Association (RMA) have dedicated their next meeting to discussion around the Revised Local Development Plan, what it means for the local community and how you can get involved..

Cardiff Council adopted the current LDP (which brought in Plasdwr) in 2016. They are now working on developing a revised LDP which will cover the period 2026-36. A number of potential development sites in and around Radyr & Morganstown are being considered in the new plan. The RMA is very concerned at what is being proposed and will be opposing the inclusion of these sites.

The meeting will be addressed by members of the RMA, the newly formed Radyr and Morganstown Local Development Group, the Radyr & Morganstown Community Council and the North West Cardiff Group.

RMA meetings are open to all. Come along to be briefed on what is happening and how everyone can get involved.

We hope the meeting will be held in the Old Church Rooms starting at 7:30pm on 21 February 2022, a Zoom link will also be available for those unable to attend in person.
