Planning Committee to visit site on 6th March

The Planning Committee met today, and voted in favour of visiting the site on the afternoon of 6th March before it makes its decision.  The next opportunity for the Committee to make its decision will be the meeting that takes place on Wednesday 13th March at 2.30pm.

We will only know for sure that the application will be considered at that meeting one week beforehand, when the agenda is published.

Council officers recommend building

Council officers have recommended that the Planning Committee should approve the development of 48 houses on land at Radyr Court Road.  The application is due for consideration by the Planning Committee on Wednesday 13th February.

Officers claim that the addition of four sets of stripes on the road, four signs, and street lighting along the rural single track section of the road represent ‘improvements’ and that Radyr Court Road ‘would retain its appearance resembling a quiet country lane’.

They also state that the 13-fold increase in traffic along this section of the lane, which is widely used by cyclists, walkers and school children, ‘will not compromise the safety of pedestrians, cyclists or other road users.’

You can read the recommendations in this schedule that has been prepared for the members of the Planning Committee.

This is not a decision – just a recommendation.  The members of the Planning Committee are the ones who will take the decision, which might happen on 13th February (or they might defer the decision pending a site visit).

Application scheduled for 13th February

Cardiff Council have today confirmed that the application to build 48 houses on land at Radyr Court Road will be considered at the Planning Committee meeting that takes place on Wednesday 13th February.  The meeting begins at 2.30pm in Ferrier Hall, City Hall, Cathays Park, Cardiff.

The precise time when this application will be heard is not known, as there are a large number of applications to be heard at the same meeting.  We have been advised that this case will be taken ‘near the beginning of the meeting’, but it will not necessarily be the first item, and so it may take an hour or more before the case is considered.

Details of the recommendation of the council’s officers to the Committee members are due to be published, and we will provide a link and summary on this site as soon as they appear.
