Some residents are concerned about off-road motorcyclists accessing areas such as the Mound Field where their presence can present a danger to others whilst also damaging the field itself.
Anyone concerned about this, or any other anti-social behaviour, can report it via 101 (the non-emergency number for the police) or 999.
Alternatively, South Wales Police has updated its website to make it easier to report crime and anti-social behaviour. The website can be found here.
It's hard to believe that anyone would ride their motorcycle on the Mound Field knowing that any passers-by can easily record their behaviour using a mobile phone camera. There's nowt as queer as folk, as they say.
Residents living close to the proposed Transport for Wales works compounds in Morganstown may be relieved to hear that the compound to be used to facilitate electrification of the Valleys Lines will be reduced in size - to the extent that hardly any of the Mound Field playing field will be required. TfW still proposes to build a 'haul road' alongside Pugh's, through the Mound Field car park and along the eastern edge of the field, to provide access to both the compounds.
The main reason for this change is the closure of the Rhys Dafis freight site at Taffs Well. TfW has secured agreement to operate from that site - so will be able to move some of their activity from Morganstown to Taffs Well.
Even so, they still propose to work from Morganstown - with the reduced-size compound - and a separate compound to enable a new bridge to be built over the railway line. We have, of course, opposed the bridge whilst suggesting that access to Gelynis Farm should be via Iron Bridge Road.
Like everyone else in Radyr and Morganstown, the Community Council today heard the sad news that the Duke of Edinburgh has passed away.
We know that the thoughts of many who live in Radyr and Morganstown will be with the Queen and her family.
It is quite likely that a number of residents will have met Prince Philip during his many visits to Wales. We would like to hear from those who did - and we would be pleased to collect your stories on a special page on our website.
Indeed, our current Chair, Cllr Huw Onllwyn Jones, met the Duke during a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award lunch at Cardiff City Hall:
’I was invited to the event...’ explains Huw.
‘I assumed that there would be a few hundred people present - so I was hugely surprised to find that I was one of just eight people sitting down to lunch. It was a very convivial affair. The Duke of Edinburgh was very charming and entertaining - with a good number of positive stories to share about his award scheme. I was glad to be able to tell him how my own daughter had benefited from the scheme. It was fascinating to spend a couple of hours in his company - and I will always remember that day’.

In the meantime, we can all look back at the amazing life of service the Duke of Edinburgh gave to his country - and you can read more about him here.
