Learn more about our plans for an exciting new community in Plasdŵr

We are working closely with Cardiff County Council and other key stakeholders to plan our new neighborhood, Gwêl y Garth, at the ever-growing Plasdŵr development.

Our proposals for 337 homes include 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom properties, of which 101 will be affordable homes. This will provide great choice for all types of buyers and local people. Plasdŵr is Cardiff’s garden city for the 21st Century, with 40% of the area being green space including woodland, parks and play areas. A new bus route will also run through the development, connecting all of the new communities to the city centre.

Our proposal for Gwel y Garth

The master plan

We want to create a thriving new community within Plasdŵr and have now submitted plans to Cardiff County Council to build 337 new homes at Gwêl y Garth. 
Once complete, Gwêl y Garth will include a range of 1, 2, 3, and 4 bedroom properties, of which 30% will be allocated as affordable housing for local people. 

As a responsible housebuilder, we’re committed to creating a greener, healthier future for future residents of Plasdŵr, as well as the local community. Up to 40% of Plasdŵr will be green space, including managed heritage woodland,
parks and play areas.
 

Streetscenes

Our ambition is to create a unique neighbourhood with it’s own character and identity but one that still compliments the local area and utilises locally sourced materials.

Future phases

Gwêl y Garth is part of phase 2 of Plasdŵr, which will eventually deliver more than 1,100 homes across the Pendown, Groeswen and Maesllech neighbourhoods. Phase 2 also includes plans for recreational sports pitches in Groeswen, as well as formal and informal green space throughout.

More developments are planned for the wider Plasdŵr scheme but Gwêl y Garth is the only proposed development by Taylor Wimpey. 
 

Homes proposed

Our proposals include 336 new homes, consisting of a range of 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom properties. 101 of these are allocated as affordable housing for local people. 

The proposals submitted include both detached and semi-detached housing of a contemporary style. A proportion of the properties are 2.5 and 3 storeys, designed to suit a growing need for this type of home.

Connectivity

The Plasdŵr development has been designed to make walking, cycling and public transport the easiest ways to get around. 

A key, strategic cycle route will run through the development, eventually linking to the Ely Trail and helping to establish the active travel network that will make walking and cycling the easiest ways to get around Plasdŵr. A new bus route will also run through the development, connecting it with neighbouring communities and the city centre.
 

Ecology

Preserving and enhancing local wildlife is a key consideration when we plan and build new developments. An environmental statement has been recorded for the wider Plasdwr development. 
Within our proposals for Gwêl y Garth, we have identified several ways to enhance the site for wildlife and these include 

Our approach features

Open space

Up to 40% of Plasdŵr will be green space, including managed heritage woodland, parks and play areas.

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 for  Gwêl y Garth, we will create a new kickabout area for communities to enjoy. The wider Plasdŵr scheme will include one secondary and four primary schools, a district centre with shops, bars and restaurants, parks, playing fields, allotments and healthcare services.
