It has been proposed that the current parish hall in Bishop Street be demolished to make way for a new health centre to serve the whole of Grangetown. It has arisen, however, that this cannot take place due to a group of bats (a protected species in Britain) that live in the roof of the hall. Designs have been made for a new hall to be built next to the church, meaning a removal of the lawn.School
