In 2009 residents in Llandaff North set up a petition against a new Tesco Express store in Station Road. A planning application to convert the old bank into retail premises was submitted to Cardiff Council by C2J Architects. In June 2010 the plans were re-submitted to Cardiff council’s planning department after the earlier application was withdrawn earlier in 2010.
Llandaff North Residents’ Association held a meeting for people to discuss their concerns with the planning application, and found that most people's concerns are parking and traffic issues. 112 residents signed a petition which requests the application is rejected on the grounds of increased traffic congestion, increased hazard to pedestrians, removal of existing parking and inadequate parking for the proposed shop.
