Trenchard Drive in Llanishen has benefited from environmental regeneration as part of the estate regeneration strategy.
During consultation local residents raised concerns about:
• Poor quality roads in the estate.
• Pedestrian links within the estate were poor and missing, including dropped kerbs to assist people with pushchairs or mobility difficulties.
• Speeding cars in the estate.
• Parking pressures around the Iorwerth Jones Centre.
• Poor quality courtyards for the flats including drying facilities and bin stores.
The following key areas were improved:
• Purpose built bin stores;
• Drying facilities;
• New front boundary walls and railings and rear timber fencing.
• Enhanced parking area in Hannah Close with new street lighting and seating;
• Resurfacing of roads, new street lights and new speed humps;
• New pedestrian routes through the estate;
• New parking spaces along Trenchard Drive;
What are we doing to address these issues?
Following this exercise, we have identified the following key areas for improvement:
- Courtyard improvements (construction of new bin stores, drying facilities and new boundaries);
- Improving parking around the Iorwerth Jones Centre;
- Resurfacing of roads;
- Improve the pedestrian routes through the estate;
- Traffic calming measure to reduce speeds.
