Trees, privacy and Canton character under threat from developers
Developers want to ruin a special corner of Canton in Cardiff by chopping down a beautiful collection of mature trees in a historic conservation area.
You can stop them by opposing their plans on Cardiff council’s planning webpages or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and referring to planning application 18/01064/MJR
The Save Suffolk House campaign is opposed to this proposed development because:
- It will have a visual impact on the neighbourhood, through the destruction of a number of mature trees in a Conservation Area. Cardiff Council’s appraisal states that “the most notable landscape features [of the Conservation Area] are the streets lined with mature trees.”
- The height of the proposed flats will overlook a number of nearby properties and affect their privacy
- Suffolk House is a locally listed building and part of the Conway Road conservation area and this development would damage the unique charcter of the area
- Suffolk House is described as a landmark building in Cardiff Council’s appraisal of the area. It was built by Benjamin Wright as a wedding present for his daughter. It is an impressive white 3 storey villa, with a classical porch with decorative bays and balconies above. The destruction of the trees on the site will negatively affect the setting of the building
- The application would lead to the over development of the area.
- The development could affect safety on the roads by adding to the already busy juction of Romilly Road and Llandaf Road
