Fair use rationale for Image:Cardiff logo.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Cardiff logo.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 06:12, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.


Cardiff CouncilCity and County of Cardiff — Full name of authority, also current title seems awkward and is grammatically incorrect ("council" is common when presented this way) —81.104.175.145 19:14, 1 July 2007 (UTC)

Survey[edit]

Feel free to state your position on the renaming proposal by beginning a new line in this section with *'''Support''' or *'''Oppose''', then sign your comment with ~~~~. Since polling is not a substitute for discussion, please explain your reasons, taking into account Wikipedia's naming conventions.
  • oppose. Cardiff Council is the most common name by which the authority is known thus is in accord with WP Naming Policy. The official name is mentioned in the first line bärlinerTalk 11:52, 3 July 2007 (UTC)
    • Most common name according to whom? The name is nonsensical, as there is no such entity as "Cardiff Council". 81.104.175.145 13:41, 5 July 2007 (UTC)
  • Oppose. http://www.cardiff.gov.uk/ is titled Home Page of Cardiff Council and headed Welcome to Cardiff Council's website. So the claim above that the name is nonsensical is, ahem, news to the council in question. Andrewa 06:47, 6 July 2007 (UTC)
  • Oppose, per observations below. Cardiff Council (with capitalisation) is one of the official names, under legislation, of the council and the one used. The County and City of Cardiff is not the name of the council, but of the county (geographical area administed by the council).Lozleader 12:01, 6 July 2007 (UTC)
  • Oppose. When I was resident in Cardiff, all offical conatct was with Cardiff Council, and thats how they were known in the neighbourhood.Catwhoorg 12:04, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

Any additional comments:

Section 2 of the LG(W) A 1994 that established the council:[1]

(3) Each council for a county in Wales shall have the name of the county with the addition— (a) in the case of their English name, of the words "County Council" or the word "Council" (as in "Cardiganshire County Council" or "Cardiganshire Council")

As Cardiff is technically a county according to the schedule to the Act [2], Cardiff Council is indeed the official name of the authority.

The above discussion is preserved as an archive of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

It was requested that this article be renamed but there was no consensus for it be moved. --Stemonitis 18:14, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

Opening para[edit]

Having looked at the legislation and so on, the following seems to more accurately reflect the situation:

Cardiff Council (Welsh: Cyngor Caerdydd) is the governing body for City and County of Cardiff, one of the Principal Areas of Wales. The council consists of 75 councillors, representing 29 electoral wards. While the county is properly styled as City and County of Cardiff, it is more often referred to as the City of Cardiff (its pre-1996 style) or simply Cardiff.

Tagged article - Cleanup[edit]

I've tagged the article for cleanup: It's relativly poorly worded and hard to read. --nappymonster (talk) 15:44, 29 June 2008 (UTC)

Welsh Name[edit]

Just a little point, but at the beginning of the page, the phrase 'County Council of the City and County of Cardiff' is translated as 'Dinas a Sir Caerdydd' but I believe a more accurate translation would by 'Cyngor Dinas a Sir Caerdydd' as the current translation only says 'City and County of Cardiff'. --86.6.154.211 (talk) 12:51, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
