Tackling speeding through the village is a major concern for the Community Council.

Improving the Ely River

18

December 2023

The South East Wales Rivers Trust (SEWRT) is a local charity working to protect and improve the rivers across the south east Wales valleys, including the River Ely. SEWRT has funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund to deliver the Restore, Protect and Enhance the Ely Valley (RePrEEV) project and is keen to work with people and communities who use, live and work by the river Ely to nurture a thriving valley and catchment –see The RePrEEV Project – for further information.

RePrEEV is starting with a survey to help guide this work and to gain insight into people’s connection to the River Ely catchment, as well as how people engage with their other local rivers.  Please complete the survey here:

Village Maintenance

September 2023

Village Maintenance

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

13

June 2023

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:

Report Speeding

29

May 2023

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

04

April 2023

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 –

https://www.valeofglamorgan.gov.uk/en/living/planning_and_building_control/Planning/planning_policy/Candidate-Sites.aspx

At this stage, Council Officers are not able to discuss the merits or otherwise of individual sites as this would be premature.
