Every week we’re going to be digesting the best of Cardiff on the web. Be it the latest videos, interesting blog posts, new websites, or old ones that are doing something new – this will feature anything and everything Cardiff that’s on the web. If you’ve got anything you should feature, add it in the comments below or get in touch.
Cardiff Council’s local development plan
Kicking off with a great article by David James and Sam Malone into Cardiff Council’s local development plan. There’s a big wrangle going on with the Assembly about where houses can and can’t be built, so Sam’s been out speaking to residents who might have their lovely views destroyed and the plan has also been mapped. Opening up information like this is very important, as the Council’s website section involves lots of complicated and long PDF documents and maps with miniscule keys.
Ellie Goulding playing live at Cardiff Arts Institute
Video has popped up on Youtube of Ellie Goulding covering Temper Trap’s ‘Sweet Disposition’, the Welsh songstress is in fine form at the Xbox Reverb gig.
No free water at University Hospital Cardiff
Cardiff blogger Green Granny has been on the warpath about the apparent lack of free drinking water at Cardiff’s University Hospital.
Internet Forever at Buffalo Bar
We found out via Loose Cardiff that Internet Forever are coming to Buffalo Bar on Monday 15th February 2010. We had to feature them just because of the name. They’ve got some pedigree though, having supported Johnny Foreigner and playing Cardiff’s SWN Festival.
Video of young people in Butetown
Who, Me? Butetown 2009 has been released on the web, a short film about young people’s experiences in Butetown. Great short video and gives you an insight into their lives. It’s made by National Theatre Wales.
Old St Mellons community website
Stumbled across this after a tour round the ward with local councillors, but Old St Mellons has a great little community website. Loads of information about the area and plenty about the history of it. Plus they won an award as a community organisation/council for communication.
