GOOD NEWS:
PLANNING APPLICATION HAS BEEN REFUSED
149 Heathwood Road


The previous information on the application has now been moved to "Archived News"

This afternoon (Wed 12th August) Cardiff Council planning committee unanimously refused the planning application for the demolition of 149 Heathwood Road and the construction of flats.

The council planning officers had decided that the application should be refused and this was put to the planning committee.

Local neighbouring residents and other HRA members attended the meeting and had the opportunity to address the planning committee.  Councillors Graham Hinchey and Lyn Hudson together with John Jones (chairman of the Heath Residents Association) spoke on their behalf.

Much of the success was due to the hundreds of signatures on a petition together with the very large number of emails and postal letters sent objecting to the application.

Thanks to everyone who took part.  We hope that common sense has prevailed and that the matter is closed.

RECYCLING CENTRE WEDAL ROAD

This is a copy of the objection sent to Cllr. Bob Derbyshire on behalf of the HRA:

Heath  Residents, Association wish to register their objection to the closure of the Recycling Centre at Wedal Road, Heath, Cardiff.
Whilst realising that the Council have to make stringent cuts due to the lack of funding it strongly felt that the recycling centre, as a useful resource, far outweighs the savings that would be made.
There is no doubt that people from all areas of Cardiff use this facility on a daily basis and on many days is over subscribed. 
We would encourage all people to recycle their home rubbish in a sensible manner so that only those items that cannot be recycled go into landfill. This facility allows this to be done and for people to be educated in what can be recycled. Should this facility close there will be no less rubbish so what is going to happen to it?
Yes, there are facilities in other parts of the City which are some distance from the North of Cardiff. Living in the Heath we have some  wonderful parks and woodland areas. Are these going to be used for fly tipping which is not a problem at the moment. 
No doubt an argument will be put forward about the adjoining residential properties but it must be borne in mind that the tip has been there for many more years than the houses and residential care home and if there had been environmental concerns then surely the Cardiff Council would not have allowed the development of these sites.
Cars will have to travel further causing congestion and increased pollution. It would perhaps be better, if it is necessary to move this particular site, to consider options in the North of the City where another centre could be sited. Thought should also be given to more service centres e.g. at supermarkets.
A RECYCLING CENTRE IS REQUIRED IN THE NORTH OF THE CITY TO PRESERVE THE ENVIROMENT.
