We were amazed by the large number of people who attended our public meeting in Rhiwbina on Tuesday February 8 to discuss the Rhiwbina Candidate Sites which have been put forward by developers for inclusion in the Local Development Plan. The approximate headcount was 250.
Adrian Robson outlined the process for the Council to form a new Local Development Plan and then highlighted to the meeting the details of the five separate proposals, three of which related to one site. Brian Jones, along with Adrian, answered the questions from the floor. Jayne Cowan chaired the meeting.
Residents voiced concerns about all three proposals for Greenhill Special School site and the proposal for development close to the Tympath at the rear of Brynteg. All residents seemed amazed at the scale of the Briwnant Proposal to build approximately 1200 homes, a business park, a primary school, a village centre, a country park and a park and ride facility North of the M4.
There was much interest in the five proposals and residents were keen to view the plans and make their feelings known to the audience.
Residents were also able to leave their comments which we will submit during the official consultation stage, which starts in May 2011.
Residents without access to email can view the plans in Rhiwbina Library, Pen y Dre or at County Hall - both during office hours.
