Matt Smith by former Maskreys store on Whitchurch Road

Local Lib Dem, Matt Smith, wants residents to be aware of a planning application for the former Maskreys site on Whitchurch Road.

The Gabalfa Lib Dem Focus Team understand that a first planning application has been received for a new Sainsbury's shop at the former Maskreys building on Whitchurch Road.

Local Lib Dem Assembly candidate, Matt Smith, said: "An application has been submitted which seeks permission for an enclosure at the back of the shop to locate equipment for renovation work at the site. This would see a small section at the rear of the shop demolished. This application is likely to followed by a further planning application for the main works at the site, where we understand the upper storeys of the building will be converted into flats."

If you want to make any comment on this initial application, then send your comments in writing to the Chief Regulatory Services Officer, City Hall, Cardiff, CF10 3ND or by e-mail to developmentcontrol@cardiff.gov.uk, quoting application number 11/437/DCI.

The local Lib Dems also understand that pre-application discussions have been held with the applicant for a change of use of nos. 90-94 Manor Street. This would see these houses (formerly used as office/storage by Maskreys) turned back into residential properties.
