The proposed development – which is opposed by Penarth Town Council –  would  involve the building of three blocks of contemporary apartments at different levels on the steeply-sloping site  –  almost directly above the Custom House restaurant complex.

The property owner, Mr Mark Evans, has issued an email ‘to whom it may concern’ saying that he has been informed that Plaid Cymru has been “distributing leaflets”  asking its members to attend Northcliff Lodge this morning to “object to Councillor Gwyn Roberts”. Cllr Roberts (Labour St Augustines) is a member of the Vale of Glamorgan Council and of its planning committee.

Mr Evans has issued a warning that  “unauthorised entry will not be permitted and might be seen as trespassing”.

    Why have they chosen to build such an ugly design for the block of flats?
    Prince Charles where are you when we need you.

  2. Chris David says:

    What does Mr Evans mean to hide?

  3. Richard says:

    I’m massively warming to Plaid Cymru.
    In the true spirit of the party’s origins, not rolling over to the ‘powers-that-be’.

  4. Mark says:

    I, too, wish to issue a warning – that endless building and cutting down trees and filling the place with ugly concrete, all in the name of money, might be seen as ignorance and greed.

  5. Frank Evans says:

    Labour committed to everything ordinary people sre opossed to.

  6. Anne says:

    Site visits are public meetings by law. The public is entitled to hear what is being said at the site meeting. Many local residents have genuine concerns about this development and sent a petition to the council opposing it.
