Ted Thurgood

We have just had the sad news that Ted Thurgood, our first Chairman, died at the beginning of this week.  Ted had been in poor health for some time and was living in a nursing home.  The eventual success of the RAG campaign was largely due to the organisation that Ted set up and his formidable skills as a campaigner.  It is a great shame that he did not live to see his beloved reservoirs reopened.  Ted's funeral will be at the Thornhill Crematorium Marquee on Wednesday 28th August at 09.15 am.  If you are a RAG member and plan to attend, please let us know on as it would be helpful for the family to know roughly how many RAG members will be coming.

Planning Consultation

Taylor Wimpey has produced various plans outlining the next stage of the new housing development between Lisvane and Pontprennau.  This development of 2500 homes, will occupy most of the current farmland and fields between Cyncoed and Lisvane.  Although we are resigned to this new development, which was designated for housing in the Council’s 2016 Local Development Plan, we are concerned that there should remain a significant green corridor between the boundary of Lisvane reservoir and any new housing development.  This would allow the development of routes for walking and cycling and help to retain at least a vestige of the rural nature of this part of North Cardiff.  If you share these views, or wish to make any other points about the development, please respond to the consultation (by 11th December 2018). The full consultation documents can be accessed here.
