What goodies do you think she got for that bit of PR?

Sure there are plans for a Metro line in the distant future but these developments are happening now. Unlesss there is some short-term mitigation (and it's difficult to imagine what that might be) it's going to be horrendous.


Are there? Where?

From memory going south to north, you have Redrow's ridiculously named Plasdŵr (a mistranslation of a mistranslation), Barret's 'Maes y Deri ' two un-named sites just north of Rhydlafar and another opposite the first turning to Creigiau.

I think he means where are the metro plans, They were recently published on the Transport for Wales website, hidden at the back of a document called SHRA. The plans for 'North West Corridor' are not yet finalised but include a LR 'tram' running on the old HR alignment from Fairwater on the City Line to Creigiau (scheme 238) and onwards to Llantrisant (scheme 229) with a few alternatives thrown in.

However these schemes are 'not finalised'
Build it and they will come.
Get it wrong and they will fall off.

Drive it several times a day (I live in Danescourt) the sheer scale of Plasdwr, Maes Y Deri (the Barratt site near Rhydlafar) and the Parish (near Creigiau) are just staggering. Keep meaning to try and get some photos but there are not many places to stop...

I decided to take a look at some of the websites of these new developments - mainly to get a sense of scale or design and layout. The first one I checked was Persimmon's "The Parish", which has very little detail. What it does have is some wonderful examples of pretty crap English language writing and pretty uninspiring marketing for new homes.

Persimmon Homes wrote:For local outdoor activities there is Creigiau Golf Club and Creigiau recreation ground. To the South there is St. Fagans National Museum of History which is a fun family day out. For larger leisure activities Cardiff hosts a huge range, for starters Cardiff Bay has a huge pool Cardiff International Pool and Cardiff Bay Yacht Club. Within Cardiff town centre and outskirts there is the New Theatre, Cardiff Castle and Motorpoint Arena Cardiff to name a few.


Persimmon Homes wrote:Creigiau has a bus service which goes to Cardiff City Centre, from here there is many bus routes going throughout Cardiff and further afield to Newport to the East and Swansea to the West. Cardiff has an excellent train service by Arriva which has many train stations within the City Centre. They also go to Barry Island, Penarth and Pontypridd to name a few. Cardiff Central train station also links to nearby towns and further London Paddington. For further trips Cardiff Airport is South West of Cardiff which goes to popular destinations. Creigiau is near the A4119 which heads into Cardiff, plus Junction 34 M4, heading East to Newport and West to Swansea.


Persimmon Homes wrote:Within Creigiau there is Creigiau Pharmacy, and Radyr Medical Centre is nearby which is currently welcoming any new registrations. Only a quick drive away there is Nuffield Health The Vale Hospital. To the East in Cardiff there are quite a few hospitals, to name a few Rookwood Hospital, Four Elms Medical Centre, University Hospital of Wales and University Hospital Llandough.


Does noone who actually knows something about marketing or the English language actually read over these things???

Oh and now Barratt's Maes y Deri is in the wrong location..

Maes Y Deri
Pugh's Garden Centre, Tynant Road, Morganstown, CARDIFF, CF15 8LB

I'm guessing that is where the marketing suite currently is while they construct the development? But still, confusing!!

Well let's hope the budget is all being splashed on the building not the marketing. Given the scale of this we really need it to be a success. When one thinks of recent developments in Cardiff - Thornhill, St Mellons, Pontprennau - it's hard to feel optimistic. What was wrong with having streets in straight lines? I get it in a way, giving people a sense of space and the car is so important but all these strange layouts look like a maze.
