Llandaff Fields People’s Hub has been launched in response to a development threat to this area of much-loved and well-used parkland. A plan to build a large, privatised development (at tennis courts area) with access road, parking, enclosed 3G pitch and a bar has met with HUGE opposition from park users.
Llandaff Fields People’s Hub aims to protect the fields, maintaining sporting activities such as rugby, bowls and tennis, and replacing the changing rooms.
“We aim to promote recreational use of the park for all ages and abilities, while protecting the fields from development and privatisation. The Church Commissioners gave the park to the people of Cardiff for sport and recreation, not for development and individual gain.” said Councillor Iona Gordon, trustee of the Hub.
“In the last 40 years West Cardiff citizens have lost more than a third of our central parkland to creeping development, much of which has taken place in recent years, and it has to stop. Llandaff Fields must be protected for the health and wellbeing of the people, and for the benefit of generations to come. Green space cannot be plundered on our watch.” said Nerys Lloyd-Pierce the Chair of the Llandaf Fields People’s Hub.
