Another article on Wales Online about the Central Square development. Reporting that it "could" be operational in late 2020.

I never realised Ken Skates was so small and weedy...
Build it and they will come.
Get it wrong and they will fall off.

It reads to me as if they've now started the prep work? Is that the case?

They’ve started having a tidy. I’m not sure what else they can do until a contractor is in place and I believe a previous article referred to May/June for that

OK there's definitely activity at the site, but - when are we going to see some actual 'construction'/piling and when will we see a planning app?

Doesn't the bit they are doing, the basement and other groundworks already have planning permission? I think I read that they said they were using the old versions plans and permission for the below ground bits and will be getting planning permission for the latest version for the above ground bit.

Well yes I think you are right - I guess I'm being impatient to see details of what's going above the bus station - just to check it hasn't radically changed again since last render :? As for the groundworks that they do have permission for - when will that begin!?

Do they even have a contractor to do those groundworks yet? I might have missed it I guess, but I haven't read anything about it.

Previous article on WoL

“Rightacres is currently negotiating with two main contractors and will be able to appoint a firm to carry out the work once the funding from Welsh Government and the operational lease with Transport for Wales are both agreed. It is hoped a contractor will be appointed to deliver the bus station by May or June this year. “

Probably sensible to add another month or 2 onto that.

Their article last month suggested a public consultation exercise on new plans early May, application released end of May and in front of committee in July.

Again, sensible to add a couple of months onto this too

Stumbled across this video and think it is interesting to see how much the area around Central has changed over last 20 years.
