Gareth and Ed are working to minimise disruption caused by the redevelopment of Northlands.

Work is progressing on the new Salvation Army hostel at Northlands on North Road in Gabalfa ward.

Local campaigners, Gareth Holden and Cllr. Ed Bridges continue to call for disruption to be kept to a minimum - especially for residents around Pen-y-Bryn Road and surrounding streets.

Gareth, who lives on Pen-y-Bryn Road, said: "Permission for the redeveloped hostel and social housing was granted by the Welsh Labour Government after being initially refused by Cardiff Council's Planning Committee. The second phase of the development (for social housing by Pen-y-Bryn Place) will begin later this year. We want to make sure disruption is kept to a minimum - in particular, by ensuring that deliveries and construction traffic for the social housing development don't end up using residential side streets."

To find out more, come to our local PACT meeting on Tuesday 8th May, 7pm at St. Joseph's Social Club on Whitchurch Road where representatives from the developer will be on-hand to answer questions.
