Proposed Development

North East Cardiff

Cardiff, CF14 0PF

Learn about our plans for an exciting new community in Cardiff

We are preparing a reserved matters planning application for a residential development of 2,500 new homes and community facilities on land at North East Cardiff. A reserved matters application deals with the finer details of the development, such as the mix, layout and design of the homes.

Our proposals include a range of homes and apartments. This will provide a great choice for all types of buyers, from working professionals and young couples, to growing families or downsizers. 

Our plans also include a new primary and secondary school, a district centre and retail space. As well as this, we have incorporated public open space including parks, gardens, outdoor sports pitches and play areas for the use of the local community. 

With the development just over 4 miles from the Cardiff city centre, this development is in an ideal and sought-after location.

Our proposal for North East Cardiff

Masterplan

We want to create a thriving new community in North East Cardiff.
We will also deliver a new primary and secondary school, as well as a district centre for residents and the wider community to use as a base for sporting and social activities. Additional communal space will be provided through our plans to include parks, gardens, play areas, outdoor sports pitches, allotments and community orchards. The homes at North East Cardiff will be surrounded by large areas of green open space and new footpaths and cycleways will connect the development to the local area.
 

Street scenes

Our ambition is to create a unique neighbourhood with its own identity but one that still complements the local area.
Using the arrangement of the streets, spaces, building types and materials, our proposals are designed to create an attractive and welcoming place to live. A coordinated palette of materials and building forms are proposed to ensure the new neighbourhood has a distinct architectural style. These include steeply pitched roofs made from Welsh slate, tall chimneys, windows that are made of wood with small panes of glass and brown and red brick walls with a white roughcast render.

Our proposals features

Connectivity

We understand that a new development will have an impact on the existing community and we have carefully considered this as we have developed our proposals.
A transport assessment was completed as part of the process to gain outline planning approval. As part of the scheme we will ensure that the necessary infrastructure is implemented to meet the needs of existing and new communities. We will also be providing dedicated sustainable transport corridors to accommodate public transport, walking and cycling which also provide effective links to the surrounding areas. 

Drainage

We have prepared a flood risk assessment and surface water drainage strategy to ensure that an appropriate drainage strategy is put in place.
To reduce the impact of the proposed development on the existing drainage network we propose numerous small streams to drain the site. The larger water courses of Nant-Ty-Draw and Nant Glandulais flow north to south through and adjacent to the site. These will help control the flow of surface water. 

Ecology

Preserving and enhancing local wildlife is a key consideration when we plan and build new developments. We have carried out a number of ecological surveys to identify any ecological constraints on the site.

Working closely with ecologists, the surveys we have carried out have identified that the site itself does not contain any statutory nature conservation designations. However, a number of protected species have been found to be present on site including badgers, wintering birds, dormice, Great Crested Newts and bats. In addition, the southern land parcel directly adjacent to Lisvane Reservoir is designated for its winter bird population and the reservoir embankments for their grassland ecology. 

The retention of key green infra-structure, woodlands and vegetation corridors across the site are an integral part of our plans to enhance biodiversity and prevent biodiversity losses.

 

Our approach features

Economic benefits

We want to deliver new homes and facilities that positively integrate with and enhance the local community.
Our plans incorporate land for employment-led facilities, predominantly new jobs associated with the proposed district centre, and retail space areas. Following the completion of the proposed development, around 1,000 jobs could be permanently accommodated within it as part of our S106 agreement.

Open space

Ensuring our residents and the local community have access to beautiful green open spaces is a key consideration. 
Our plans for North East Cardiff include areas of public open space such as parks and gardens, green corridors, green space, woodland, outdoor sports pitches, allotments, community orchards and civic spaces.  A play area will also be created to encourage residents and their families to meet neighbours and friends which will help to foster a vibrant new community.

Amenities and facilities

We aim to support the communities in which we build. One way in which we do this is by providing new facilities that local people will benefit from.
As part of our proposal, we plan to deliver a range of new facilities including a District Centre and mixed use areas to include retail, community and leisure uses for the local residents. We also plan to deliver new educational facilities consisting of a primary and secondary school.
