Vale of Glamorgan councillors are to be faced with a demonstration on Thursday by local residents and members of the Saving Sully group when they conduct a site visit at the location of the controversial Cog Road housing development between Sully and Penarth.
The controversial scheme – by developers Taylor Wimpey – is to build 350 new houses on agricultural land off Cog Road – on the north West perimeter of Sully.
Ultimately this proposed development would probably contain more than 500 homes with maybe 700 cars – most of which – opponents say – would be choking the local country roads and then heading to – or through – Penarth thereby adding to the existing commuter and school congestion here.
Councillors who are members of the Vale of Glamorgan Council’s planning committee are to carry out a “site visit” to the Cog Road location on Thursday morning May 12th prior to a formal meeting of the committee on Thursday evening at 18:00 at the Vale Council HQ at Barry at which the scheme will be discussed
Prior to the site visit, the Saving Sully Group will march to the Cog Road site with placards and banners – setting out from the lay by opposite the BP Sports Club at 10:30 – and hold a “peaceful demonstration” whilst the councillors are carrying out the inspection.
That same evening a number of the protestors are expected to attend the meeting of the Vale of Glamorgan Planning Committee and are expected to exercise their right to speak at the meeting . The Saving Sully campaign is reminding anyone who does wish to speak at the meeting that they must let the Vale of Glamorgan Council know of their intention to speak 24 hours in advance.
