The Vale of Glamorgan Council has received a contribution of £1.4m from the developers of Penarth Heights for transport improvements near the site, and wants to hear from local residents. 

The financial contribution was secured from a section 106 agreement which requires the contribution to be spent at on improving access for pedestrians, cyclists, public transport users, taxis or car sharers near Penarth Heights.

The council has been considering a number of options for improvements to the Windsor Road/ Plassey Street roundabout and enhancing the layout and materials used in this area to create an attractive gateway to Penarth town centre.

The council welcomes feedback on the different options, and would like to hear any other ideas residents may have for improving walking and cycling facilities and infrastructure in this area.

These options are enlarging the roundabout central island to reduce the speed of vehicles going through the junction, removing the roundabout and introducing a three way signalled junction with toucan crossings, removing the roundabout with a new T-junction introduced to connect Windsor Road with Plassey Street or a one way system in place on Windsor Road from the junction with High Street, travelling north. 

Cabinet Member for regeneration and planning, Cllr Jonathan Bird, said: “We’d like to hear what residents think about the options that have been proposed and will look to implement a scheme later on this year.”
