It has been confirmed that the Public Inquiry into whether the Rumney Recreation Ground should be awarded legal status as a village green will be held in late September. The Public Inquiry is due to sit in the upstairs function rooms in the Llanrumney Library on Tuesday 21st September and will last for up to three days.

The Public Inquiry will be directed by Mr. Leslie Blohm QC and will sit at the following times;

It is expected that Mr. Leslie Bohlm QC will then consider his decision and make a recommendation to Cardiff Council at a later date.

Cardiff Council confirmed that they will be represented at the Public Inquiry by a private barrister paid for out of tax-payers money whilst residents will have no formal legal representation but their case will be put by local MP Alun Michael.
