Cardiff launches Student Community Action Plan
A new Student Community Action Plan which aims to improve the quality of life for students, residents and the wider community is being launched and funded by City of Cardiff Council, Cardiff Metropolitan University, Cardiff University and the University of South Wales.
The plan covers the period 2015 – 2018 and will be launched at a stakeholder event on March 23rd at County Hall.
Cabinet Member for Safety, Engagement and Democracy, Councillor Dan De'Ath, said: "The city's students are an integral part of the community in Cardiff and help make Cardiff the vibrant city that it is."
"Despite that positive contribution the concentration of students in specific areas of the city can result in housing and lifestyle pressures that negatively impact on communities. This new plan demonstrates the commitment of all partners to build on the good work that has already been done to deliver positive improvements to the community that enhance the student and resident experience and benefit Cardiff as a whole."
Since the first Student Community Action Plan was introduced in 2007 significant progress has been made in areas including:
As well as the four key partners the plan aims to integrate the work of partners from a wide range of public, private and charitable enterprises who have a role to play in student community matters.
