Cardiff Council Update: 31 March

Here is the latest update from Cardiff Council, covering: littering in Cardiff Bay, parks and green spaces; vaccination totals for Cardiff and Vale of Glamorgan; and Cardiff's COVID-19 case and test numbers.


Cardiff Council Statement: Littering in Cardiff Bay, parks and green spaces

A council spokesperson said: "Our cleansing teams have been hard at work since 6am this morning clearing up the unacceptable amount of litter left behind by people enjoying the sunshine, both in Cardiff Bay, and the city's parks and green spaces.

"The area around the Senedd and the Oval Basin was cleared and cleaned by 9am this morning, taking nine members of staff, two mechanical sweepers and two transit vans to complete.

"Operations of this scale are costly for taxpayers, time consuming, and divert resources from other areas of the city. Additional large bins are temporarily being installed in Cardiff Bay today and will be in place at key parks sites over the coming days. Bins in these areas are, and will continue to be emptied regularly, however we would ask visitors enjoying these areas to dispose of their waste responsibly, and if a bin is full, take it to an empty one, or take it home with them.

"Current Covid-19 restrictions allow up to six people, from two households, to meet outdoors while socially distanced and we would urge visitors to Cardiff Bay and to our parks and green spaces to follow these rules, and help keep Cardiff safe."
