A massive THANK YOU to all the litter picking people, who voluntarily took time out and joined in today’s Community Council led litter pick, in St Athan village.  In just over 1 and a half hours, an amazing total of 6 sacks of rubbish where collected from Rock Road and Rectory Road.

As a small token of thanks, everybody was treated to tea and biscuits at the end of the litter pick.

It would be great to see even more litter picking people at our next litter pick, which will be held in Flemington on Saturday 12th October 19, from 10am to 12noon

Public Consultation on Supplementary Planning Guidance

The Vale of Glamorgan Local Development Plan 2011-2026 (LDP) was adopted by the Council on the 28th June 2017. The LDP supersedes the previous adopted Unitary Development Plan and sets out the policies for managing development in the Vale of Glamorgan and is the basis for decisions on land use planning. The Council has prepared a draft Supplementary Planning Guidance document (SPG) to supplement the policies contained in the LDP in relation to the Cardiff Airport – St Athan Enterprise Zone and Strategic Employment Allocation. The draft SPG is referred to as:

  • Cardiff Airport and Gateway Development Zone 

The Public are invited to comment on these draft documents during the public consultation exercise taking place between Monday 19th 2019 and 5p.m. Tuesday 1st October 2019.

The draft SPG and further information on the consultation procedures are available on the Council’s web site at  or hard copies can be inspected at the Dock Office, Barry during normal office hours. Once the consultation period ends, all comments will be reported to the Council’s Cabinet for their consideration prior to the final adoption of the SPG for use in the determination of future planning applications.

In the interim the Council’s existing adopted SPG will still be used as a material consideration in the determination of planning applications. If you require any further information about the SPGs or this consultation exercise, please contact the LDP Team on 01446 700111 or email

Non-Complex Surgery for Adults in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan – proposed move of service to Llandough

Cardiff and Vale University Health Board’s proposals for Non-Complex Surgery for Adults in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan

Cardiff and Vale University Health Board would like to hear your views on a proposal to increase the range of non-complex surgery for residents of Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan that is provided at University Hospital Llandough (UHL).  Routine surgical services are already well developed at UHL and we would like to build on that with an initial focus on moving some day case and short stay Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) surgery from UHW to UHL.

Emergency pressures on the University Hospital of Wales site (UHW) in Cardiff often lead to short notice cancellations of planned surgery. We believe that providing more of this type of surgery at UHL will lead to a much better patient experience with reduced on-the-day cancellations and shorter waiting times, as we will be able to organise services more efficiently.

Please go to the UHB website to read the Engagement Document and tell us what you think.

Responses to the questions contained in the Engagement Document can be returned via the following options:

Mike Bond – Director of Operations Surgery Clinical Board
University Hospital of Wales
Heath Park
Cardiff CF14 4XW

  • By hand to a member of staff in the Surgery service

You can also contact the local Community Health Council (CHC) for more information:

The closing date for responses is 20 September 2019.
