To view information on a PACT Project click the link. The current PACT Projects are:
- Environmental Improvements in Plasnewydd
- Those at the PACT meeting have repeatedly expressed concerns at the levels of litter, rubbish and fly tipping prevelent in the ward.
It was agreed at the meeting to make improving the environment a partnership project as it is appreciated that it will take at least 6 months make any impact on this problem.
- Parking Problems in Plasnewydd
- It has been recognised that parking in an illegal and dangerous manner has long been a problem in the Plasnewydd ward.
It was decided at the PACT meeting to highlight this issue as a PACT project. Working together the police, councillors and other interested agencies aim to make a significant impact on this issue.
In July Cardiff Council is due to take over the traffic warden function from the police, it is anticipated that the number of wardens will be increased over a period of time which should improve the visibility of wardens on the streets.
The focus of the campaign will be those motorists who persistently park on the double yellow lines on street corners as this is not only obstructive but highly dangerous.
The police are working in partnership with the council to ensure that lines that have faded with time are re-painted on a regular basis and that all restricted parking signs are in place and clearly visible.
