The planning committee of Cardiff Council yesterday rejected an application by supermarket giant Sainsbury’s to locate a new store in the heart of Rumney Village. Local shopkeepers had been vocal in their opposition to what their perceived as a direct threat to their livelihoods. The Guardian Cardiff reports that;
Councillors have voted against an application from Sainsbury’s to build a new store on the site of the old Carpenters Arms pub in Llanrumney.
All councillors on today’s planning committee except one voted for a motion to defer the application for refusal on the grounds the new store would exacerbate problems with congestion and traffic, posing a danger to the public.”
