The appeal hearing against the refusal to grant planning permission for the construction of a Starbucks drive-through unit in the Brooklands Retail Park car park will take place on the 25th October at the Docks Office, Barry starting at 10.00am. The hearing is expected to last one day.

A list of roads to be resurfaced during the next few years includes work at Dyffryn, and Walston Road/Tarrws Lane. The extent of the resurfacing is not given in the communication. A request to remove or install the loose kerb stones at the top of Tarrws Lane before any resurfacing work is carried out is being made to the Vale.

Following the announcement that the Welsh Government has approved our grant application for funds to assist in the construction of the new library a provisional time scale has been produced which indicates construction will take around six months and commence in May/June next year. The council are hoping to advance this date during discussions with the parties involved.

With the grant now approved the Vale is to be requested to progress the Grange Park play area design.

The Vale Councillor, Johnathan Bird, updated the council on Vale matters. The car parking charges are still under public consultation; money raised is to be ring-fenced and used for car park improvements and town centre regenerations. Work on the straightening of Five Mile Lane – the night time shutting of the road is to allow widening work through the woodland area at the Barry end of the road. On the first Wednesday of the month between 2 and 4pm the site office (located near the Molton Road junction) is open to the public so you can be updated on the progress of the work
