How Could Cardiff Be Safer?
Did you know that Cardiff has a ten-year plan to become the most liveable city in Europe?
It encompasses various sectors that work together to improve aspects of our everyday lives, through the collective effort of the Cardiff Partnership.
The plan is to ensure that:
- People in Cardiff are healthy
- People in Cardiff have a clean, attractive and sustainable environment
- People in Cardiff are safe and feel safe
- Cardiff has a thriving and prosperous economy
- People in Cardiff achieve their full potential
- Cardiff is a great place to live, work and play; and
- Cardiff is a fair, just and inclusive society
Well, the cool, democratic-minded people at the City Council are reviewing the Strategy and - you guessed it - they'd like to hear from you. TheSprout has teamed up with the Cardiff Partnership and will be doing a series of interviews with the leaders of Cardiff's main institutions, and they want the questions to be yours, as people who breathe the air of this promising, growing city.
We're starting off at People in Cardiff are safe and feel safe, with Chief Superintendent Belinda Davies of the South Wales Police as the first interview. All your security-related opinions, questions and suggestions will be entertained. Things like:
- Exactly how safe is Cardiff? In relation to other cities in the country?
- What measures are currently being taken to make Cardiff more accessible and navigable for people with disabilities?
- Are there any concerns about drunken people during weekends?
- Something about the fire service
- Something about drivers who refuse to stop at zebra crossings and leave you shaken and afraid for your life / unable to go near anything with wheels for the next decade, including stretchers and trucks made of legos.
