The Committee has agreed to approach Vale of Glamorgan Council with a view to agreeing to erect a series of Information signs throughout the town. At the moment such signs are very few and far between and the ones that are erected have no real information on the history or heritage of Penarth.
We anticipate around 20 to 25 Information Boards, coupled with a series of Blue Plaques attached to buildings and QR code information points which would enable mobile phone users to scan a code which would then give a link to our website which would have more detailed information about the building or person that is being featured.
This project is in its early stages and we will consult fully with members to let you know what our plans are, this will also give you the opportunity to make your own suggestions and comments.
We would anticipate the project taking some time, we will need to make a bid for National Lottery funding and will look to engage with the community and schools to help to build the information base for it.
We feel that if adopted this project could be very a very valuable source of information for residents and visitors alike.
