Community Action Plan consultation event
Over the summer the Community Council has been carrying out maintenance and refurbishment of some of the village furniture including:
· Gates in the park. The wrought iron gate to the playground has been returned - repaired and painted.
· New signs about ‘poop and scoop’ have been installed at the park.
· Replacement refuse bags for the playground dispensers have been sourced.
· Benches along the river repaired and painted.
· Planters have been repaired, painted and replanted.
The programme of work will continue with all the benches in the park being refurbished, and the notice boards being repaired and repainted. The wooden notice boards will be removed one at a time for the refurbishing starting with the noticeboard at the white bridge which was demounted yesterday. When the noticeboard at the shop is taken down the Community Council papers and minutes will be put up in the revived noticeboard at the white bridge.
Community Plan Review
What would you like to see improved in the village?
Some ideas have already been suggested for improvements to facilities and activities in the village including:
- New traffic signs to encourage slower traffic.
- Extend the footpath all the way around the playing field.
- Lighting the path to the MUGA
- Investigate developing a permissory footpath from Gwern y Steeple to the entrance to Lanlay Meadows.
- Produce signs to link up existing footpaths from St. Fagans to Peterston as an extension to the existing River Ely trail from Cardiff Bay to St. Fagans.
We are looking for more suggestions and ideas from residents and we will consult on all the suggestions with a consultation event on the 27th Sept. Watch out for details nearer the date.
Please send suggestions:
- By email to the Community Council Clerk at Council@peterstonsuperely.org
- Or drop off in writing to the Village Shop, or The Old Police House, Main Rd.
Speeding needs to be reported
Peterston has the 20 mph speed limit now but we still have some traffic going too fast through the village. The Community Council is trying to put in place other measures to promote enforcement of the speed limit. We will only succeed in this if instances of speeding are reported to the Police and a dossier built up about the problem.
If you see speeding report it to the Police phone number or website shown on the poster above.
Local Development Plan
The Candidate Site Register for the Vale of Glamorgan Replacement Local Development Plan is now available to view on its website.
Those sites which have failed the stage 1 assessment (initial site filter) have also been identified, and are available to view in the Stage 1 Candidate Site Assessment Register. Details of the full assessment process used to consider Candidate Site submissions is also available to view on the Council's website.
It is important to note that at this stage, the inclusion of a site in the Candidate Site Register does not infer that a site will be allocated within the emerging RLDP, nor does it imply any preference of the Local Planning Authority regarding its merits. This register is not a public consultation document; merely a statement of fact of all the candidate sites which have been submitted at this stage in the RLDP process.
Further information and an interactive or PDF version of the Register can be found on the Council’s website –
At this stage, Council Officers are not able to discuss the merits or otherwise of individual sites as this would be premature.

Co-options to PSE Community Council
20 mph speed limit trial for PSE
It has been resolved that the Vale Council will be trialing a 20 mph scheme in PSE using experimental Traffic Regulation Orders together with the collection of traffic data in the first 6 months of operation. This data will inform decisions taken on the permanency of the schemes or otherwise, within the 18 month trial periods and will be the subject of a future report to Cabinet.
The data from both schemes will also be made available to Welsh Government
to assist with their pilot project
The Welsh Government has also announced that 20mph
legislation will figure in this year’s legislative programme.
The public consultation on changing the default speed limit on residential streets from 30mph to 20mph is now open until 1st October 2021.
