The Danescourt Community Association, formerly the Danescourt Residents Association has the interests of the residents of Danescourt at it heart. It continues the original aims and over the last 30 years, it has supported, lobbied for, objected to, and been the voice of the residents of Danescourt for many issues.

The DCA also contributes to the North West Cardiff Group (NWCG) along with Creigiau and Pentyrch Community Council, St Fagan’s Community Council, Radyr & Morganstown Society and the Llandaff Civic Society and has links with the Cardiff Civic Society. The NWCG, is a group of mostly professional or retired professional people that want Cardiff to be the best city it can be. Over the last few years it has put in many hours with suggestions and objections to the Local Development Plan, proposals for the metro and is in a constant battle to get the highway and transportation infrastructure improved for the housing developments that are taking place in the north west of Cardiff.

If you would like to play a part in your community please come and join us on the third Monday of every month at St John’s Hall, Danescourt at 8pm. You do not have to join the committee but if you feel you could offer your time please come along. We regularly have the Councillors in attendance and there are often updates from the North West Cardiff Group and the Police And Communities Together (PACT) meetings.

Edgar Gibbs

DCA Chair
