Councillor Jon Aylwin is delighted that Cardiff Council has agreed to improve this area

The Cathays Focus Team is celebrating the news that major funding has been found for local environmental improvement projects.
Thanks to funding bids submitted by Cathays Councillors, the Council has agreed to upgrade the public square at the Salisbury Road junction with Miskin Street. Detailed plans will now be drawn up in consultation with local residents and businesses over the next six to nine months.
Councillor Jon Aylwin said: "We've been fighting to secure funding to improve Salisbury Road for years and I'm delighted that the Council has now made this a top priority. It's great news that even in difficult financial times, Cardiff Council has agreed to continue this popular Neighbourhood Renewal Scheme."
In recent years the Cathays Focus Team has also secured funds to upgrade the Multi-Use Games Area at th

e Maindy Centre, and cash to transform the area outside St Monica's Primary School.
NO BIDS FROM LABOUR IN CARDIFF
Whilst people in Cathays have welcomed this substantial investment, residents in some parts of the city have been left shocked that their Labour councillors did not submit a single funding bid to the scheme. Labour councillors only submitted five proposals across the whole city. In contrast the Cathays Focus team suggested four proposals for Cathays alone.
Councillor Wakefield told us: "The scheme is open to all Councillors but Labour councillors in other wards like Canton and Splott didn't submit a single bid. Unlike Labour, the Cathays Focus Team will always to work hard to secure funds and improvements in our local community."
