Help Save Creigiau

 What is the Local Development Plan ?

The Cardiff Local Development Plan (LDP) sets out how the city will develop and grow up until 2026, including new housing, jobs and transport. The plan will capture the future of our city which will impact and affect almost everyone and everything in some way.

The LDP will have major implications for the North West of Cardiff, with Creigiau and St Fagans seeing the most dramatic impacts across Cardiff. Three sites are put forward in this area resulting in the potential for up to 11,000 new houses.  This website will give you more details of where these sites are

What can I do ?

A public consultation period runs until 26th November during which the Council are looking for people’s opinions of the LDP. We consider if vital that all residents :-

a)      take the time to look at what the plans contains ;

b)      consider the issues it raises ;

c)      Complete the One Minute Survey (Online here or Paper Copies being delivered)

d) style="font:7.0pt "Times New Roman"">      respond to the Council individually.

Please also look out for the following :-

Sunday 10th November 2013 :             Public Meeting, 7pm, Creigiau Church Hall

Friday 15th November 2013:    Council Public Drop-In, 2 – 7pm, Creigiau Church Hall

Thursday 21st November 2013 :          LDP Protest, from 3pm, outside Cardiff City Hall

Tuesday 26th November 2013 :           Deadline for LDP public responses

What happens after that ?

 The LDP will go in front of National Independent Examiner in August 2015 who will look at the evidence, including all public responses, before coming back in 2015 with changes required. The final LDP will then be adopted by Cardiff Council in October 2015.
