Here’s a message from Simon Field, who led the effort to stop the development of a housing estate o Radyr Court Rd. It seems the scheme was eventually blocked on grounds of safety. He writes:
“I am delighted to inform you that the appeal has been rejected by the planning inspector.
“Whilst the Inspector found that ‘the proposed development would not harm the open space resource in the surrounding area’, she did conclude that ‘there would be some detriment to the character and appearance of Radyr Court Road but not sufficient to be decisive by itself’.
“Her decision to dismiss the appeal rested on her main conclusion that ‘the proposal would have a significant detrimental impact on highway safety’.
“The full report from the Planning Inspector will be posted on the web site later today.
I’d like to thank you for your support over these past several years. It is clear that the strong local opposition to this proposed development was heard by the Council’s Planning Committee, and the Inspector clearly noted the written and oral representations made during the appeal.
With kind regards,
