GCSE Results

Today I visited my old high school, Whitchurch High, to celebrate the GCSE results with pupils and staff. The results across the city have been fantastic and are a real credit to the hard work of everyone involved.

Radyr Weir Hydro Plant

Welcome to my latest vlog.

I recently visited Radyr Weir to see for myself the fantastic new hydroelectric plant that will generate power for around 550 homes in the city. Two huge turbines turn around as water from the River Taff passes over them and generate electricity – it had been a pretty wet couple of days so the river levels were quite high and both turbines were turning.

It’s a great example of the Council investing in new green technology that will have a benefit for very many years to come. It’s also an example of a scheme that will really help the Council to meet carbon reduction targets and also the wider liveability and quality of life agenda.

There are a couple of picnic benches here and it also runs alongside the cycle path, the Taff Trail, so it’s a great site and location. It’s really worth a visit if you get a chance in the future.

Ask Cardiff 2016

Welcome to my latest Vlog.

Today I’m in Whitchurch village talking about the Ask Cardiff Survey, the regular opportunity for residents to give feedback on a range of City Council services and to help inform decisions we face on annual budget-setting. Over 4,000 people completed the survey last year.

The survey is available to complete on our website or paper copies are available in libraries and Hubs across the city. The survey closes on Sunday September 11 2016.

It’s your chance to have your say, so get involved!
