PETITION TO OPPOSE BUILDING OF 630 DWELLINGS - RETURN YOUR FORMS NOW

  • Redrow Homes has submitted a planning application for 630 new dwellings along Llantrisant Road: see here.
  • R&MCC has provided a template response, DUE BY 6 NOVEMBER , which we encourage all to submit. If you would like to receive a Word version please email Helena Fox at clerk@radyr.org.uk. Here are some basic LDP facts.
  • We need to oppose this application with vigour because it is, effectively, a pre-emptive attempt to start building on sites still to be agreed within the LDP.
  • The R&M Association is running a petition for all to indicate their opposition to the application, whether or not they send a formal response to Cardiff Council. It can be downloaded here. Please print it out and get your friends and neighbours to sign it. IT NEEDS TO BE RETURNED BY 3 NOVEMBER (see bottom of form, or drop copies into the Old Church Rooms).
  • The petition on Change.org asking Cardiff to delay the LDP in NW Cardiff is still open. Click here to sign it. 478 signatories so far.
  • Our letters and responses on the LDP are here.
