LOCAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN WHAT CAN YOU DO NOW

  • What can you do? Public consultations are over but you can respond to individual applications as they come in. R&MCC will provide template responses. If you would like to receive these please email Helena Fox at clerk@radyr.org.uk.
  • Click here to sign a petition on Change.org asking Cardiff to delay the HLDP in NW Cardiff. 432 signatories so far.
  • The LDP went to the Welsh Government on August 14. An independent inspector will examine the LDP and determine whether it is 'sound' ie can be adopted as Cardiff's plan.
  • R&MCC and the NW Cardiff Group continue to lobby for development of NW Cardiff to be delayed to align with the Metro. We will keep making the case for infrastructure to precede development.
  • Building is due to start in 2018, or sooner, and last 15 years. Developers are now submitting applications to build in the NW before the LDP is adopted and there is little chance that they will be refused.
  • Our letters and responses on the LDP are here.
