Cardiff Council Guilty of Maladministration? PDF Print E-mail

Danescourt Community Association believes that Cardiff Council could be guilty of maladministation due to it's handling of the Local Development Plan and the proposals to build some 10,000 new dwellings in North West Cardiff on 3 large sites.

DCA Chair Edgar Gibbs and Vice Chair Stewart Burgess have written to the council and to First Minister Carwyn Jones to lodge a formal complaint concerning the following

a.   The significant lack of professionalism and the mismanagement of public finances by Cardiff Council over the LDP and the strategic sites in North West Cardiff.

b.   That major improvements to the transport networks and other infrastructure in and around Cardiff will be required following the adoption of the LDP but that these will now have to be funded from the public purse rather than via S.106 or CIL and not at the direct expense of the developer.

c.   The refusal of the members of the Planning Committee to view the traffic problems already being experienced on Llantrisant Road.

d.   The failure of Cardiff Council to ensure that development is for the good of all, not just the developer.

e.   The failure of Cardiff Council to comply with the spirit of S.16 of the Traffic Management Act 2004.

f.   That Cardiff Council has wasted several rare opportunities to secure significant finances for the benefit of the public.

g.   The failure of Cardiff Council to comply with the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015.
