Any more urban sprawl in Penarth/Dinas powys area and we may as well be calling Barry a part of Cardiff's conurbation! :lol:

I moved to penarth because that's where the boss wanted to live when we relocated from M/cr. I would have gone back to Canton - somewhere around Pencisely Rise or Severn Grove would have sufficed

It will happen in my lifetime. Dinas to Barry is about half a mile.

Edit: just checked and it's 0.9 miles along Cardiff road

As far as representation constituency-wise (Westminster and Welsh Government), it already is politically joined; Cardiff South and Penarth.

There are still well-defined borders between Newport in the East though. And Cardiff isn't going to be joining with Barry any time soon. Especially with the local authority reorganisation off the agenda.

Proposals have Penarth to be in a new Vale of Glamorgan East (incudes Barry) parliament constituency. With Cardiff South merging with other Cardiff seats. Perhaps the two are diverging!

That's the government's boundary commission plan to reduce the number of MPs that's now unlikey to happen. Thankfully.

I was referring to the city and county of Cardiff expanding in the future

Only 7 fields separates where where the Cardiff sprawl ends in Lower Penarth and the Barry sprawl starts in Sully. (and to the North only 9 fields from Dinas Powys to Palmerstown)

Penarth is pretty separate still.

For one thing (and this really irks me) we can't use the dump at Bessemer road and have to use the one down at Barry. Drives me mad.

The house prices also cause separation. Even prices in Cogan are now crazy.

I just had an email offering an early bird discount for these flats. They've been on sale for a while, must be struggling to shift them...
