Many people in the locality will be familiar with the Nant Fawr meadows which have been a popular spot for informal recreation for many years.  In recognition of this fact, Mr. Andrew Hill, a local resident, has made an application for them to be registered as a Village Green under the Commons Registration Act 1965. Unsurprisingly, Western Power are opposing this registration as it would protect the meadows from the road which they are planning to drive across them to provide access to their proposed housing estate on the site of Llanishen reservoir.  There will be a public inquiry to consider the matter which will be held in the week starting Monday 9th July.  It will begin at 11am on Monday 9th July and could last up to five days. On subsequent days the inquiry will sit from 10am to 5pm, although on Monday 9th there is an additional evening sitting from 6 pm to 8pm.  The inquiry will be held in the Scout Hut adjacent to Christchurch in Lake Road North.  Come along and support your local meadows!
