As you may be aware, the Welsh Government’s Communities First Programme will end on 31st March 2018. This means South Riverside Community Development Centre (SRCDC) who host the project will not receive any further funding from Cardiff Council after 31st March 2018 and it’s with regret I am writing to confirm all existing BRG Communities First services will finish at the end of March. SRCDC are endeavouring to seek new funding and partnership opportunities in order to provide courses and services to suit the needs of the local communities.
Residents are saying that a new off licence should be stopped from opening in a suburb, according to the Residents it already had its share of homeless people, drug addicts and crime. An application has already been sent to Cardiff Council for a shop which could sell alcohol to open at 46 Tudor Street, Riverside.
But it does have some objections from some Residents, one resident that wishes to be unnamed says “that the area is really well known for its history of prostitution, drug dealers and drug addicts”. According to the source, the police and emergency services are there daily due to drug issues. The police made a fantastic effort to deal with the issues but believe that an another licensed shop wont make things better, actually the complete opposite, it actually make matters worse than it already is.
The biggest issue the residents had brought forward is the noise, drunken behavior and attracting the wrong sort of groups into a very residential area
