Cllr. Ed Bridges and Gareth Holden are representing residents over plans for a new Sainsburys at the former Maskreys site on Whitchurch Road.

The Gabalfa Focus Team continue to stand up for residents over planning issues onWhitchurch Road.

Local Lib Dem activists recently met with representatives from Sainsbury's to discuss their proposed new shop at the former Maskreys site.

Local campaigner, Gareth Holden, said: "We relayed residents' concerns about parking and deliveries for the proposed new shop. Sainsbury's did make some welcome assurances about deliveries to the site, but we remain concerned about the logistics of the development."

A formal planning application - #11/883/DCI - has been lodged for the new signage for the proposed new Sainsburys shop, and is also seeking permission for a cashpoint at the location. The full plans can be seen at City Hall. Cllr. Ed Bridges submitted a local petition against the proposed Sainsbury's at a recent Council meeting.

No application has yet been received for the mooted flats above the new shop, but as always we will keep residents posted.

Cllr. Ed Bridges added: "We had a positive result over the proposed late-night opening of Pizza Milano further up Whitchurch Road. They applied for permission to stay open until 5am, but this was rejected following our representations. We also hope that a proposal for 21 Whitchurch Roadwill be restricted to just being a restaurant rather than another late-night takeaway."
