Rejected petition Rename Cardiff Bay, Tiger Bay to show pride in our diverse history.

As some of you may be aware cardiff bay used to be called tiger bay.
But in the redevelopment of the docks the cardiff council and Welsh government considered the name Tiger Bay as too exotic and so they changed it too cardiff bay. Trying to sweep away the diverse communities that lived there coining them slums.
This is wrong and so renaming the bay, tiger bay is the right step for cardiff and Wales to preserve our history and represent our colourful communities.

Why was this petition rejected?

It’s about something that the Senedd or Welsh Government is not responsible for.

The naming of Cardiff Bay is the responsibility of Cardiff Council. Petitions to the Senedd cannot concern an issue that is the operational responsibility of a local authority and, therefore, we are not able to accept a petition on this issue.

You could consider contacting Cardiff Council or your local representatives about this matter instead.
