Cardiff ‘garden city’ project moves forward

July 6, 2017 by  

The exciting ‘garden city’ project being developed in Cardiff is moving forward at a rapid pace, with the news that the first group of people could be able to move into it by the autumn.

Once this project has been completed, it will offer homes for 7,000 people, with a timescale of 15 years having been set for this. The location of the project is a site that borders Radyr, Danescourt, St Fagans and Fairwater.

Building work is now underway on the £2 billion project’s first phase and employment for an estimated 30,000 local people will be created during the decade and a half that it remains in development. This initial phase will see 126 houses constructed not far from Llantrisant Road.

The main developer for the project is Redrow Homes and it is set to incorporate woodland, parks, playing fields, leisure centres, eating and drinking outlets, offices, shops and health centres. Wayne Rees, the director of the project, told Wales Online that:

“While Plasdwr will become a new community, we also want to ensure that it blends with the wider community surrounding it and provides additional facilities that are needed for the area as a whole to thrive.”

When this development is finished it will be able to call on brochure printers to help showcase all of its different amenities.
