Plans to help Rhiwbina RFC access new funding


Plans to help Rhiwbina RFC access new funding opportunities and secure investment in existing facilities at Caedelyn Park have been revealed.

The club are set to become the latest community sports club in Cardiff to take on responsibility for the management and maintenance of facilities and pitches in the park where they play.

The new arrangements, which are proposed for a 40-year term, cover the changing rooms, toilets, and a bungalow, as well as allowing the club preferential use of the adjoining sports pitches. The arrangement will enable the club to access new funding streams which are unavailable to local authorities, and help secure investment to improve the facilities.

As a consequence of the plans, legal notices have been published advertising the ‘disposal' of 1,953 sq m of buildings and immediately adjoining land at Caedelyn Park.

‘Disposal' is a legal term which, in this case, refers to the granting of a lease. All facilities will remain in the ownership of Cardiff Council.
