Green space under threat
AS a former Waunarlwydd resident, I wholeheartedly support the protest by the residents of Caer Gynydd Road (Post, February 18) against the LDP candidate site proposal for housing development on the village green-like space near the junction of Caer Gynydd Road and Bryn Road.
As someone who travels often along Caer Gynydd Road, I am dismayed this pleasant green site is under threat from what amounts to unnecessary “overdevelopment”.
The residents of Caer Gynydd Road should be congratulated for their resolve in protesting against a candidate site proposal which appears to me to be insensitive to the feelings of local people.
In view of the amount of development that has gone on in Waunarlwydd and Gowerton in recent years and the fact the new LDP also contains numerous housing developments via candidate site proposals, it really does appear that, as an earlier correspondent to the Evening Post suggested, “Every green space in the city area is under threat”.

I don’t think we should ever underestimate the value of our remaining green and wooded quiet places in our towns, villages and housing estates and their contribution to the quality of life and we should all be as alert to challenge any changes in planning laws that threaten their existence.
As the residents of Caer Gynydd Road, Waunarlydd, clearly are. Diolch yn fawr Caer Gynydd!
