Surely the possibility of electric trains would negate major concerns about noise. And there are trains all over Cardiff. As for 50m - in an area that size? How could that be a big problem? I fear another badly planned suburban sprawl in our midst that will, alas, be better than doing nothing.

Latest photo update - the first few homes at Parc Plymouth (Redrow's name for the estate being built off Clos Parc Radyr) are now occupied, and the next wave are being built:

Meanwhile, the first few homes are being built at the other end of Plasdwr (top of Pentrebane):

Knee jerk reaction by me based on one photo but God that looks bleak.

Is this really what we want to live in or are we just at mercy of the volume house builders?

its nice to see that the developers are moving away from the anytown identikit and moving towards a unique to Cardiff type of build of yesteryear.
I'd rather be no one than someone with no one.

What did you have in mind? I think a slightly higher density could have done the area a bit of good - will take up less land and will allow for more provision of affordable housing. Hopefully, they have something up their sleeve.

What Karl said.

What a waste of land. What an uninspiring, car dominated place.

Why have house builders basically been building the same houses for 50yrs+. We don't all want to live like this. It's 2017, and it's about time they started to realise we've progressed.

Have we though?

Take a look at 'The Grange' in Wenvoe it is a reasonably comparable development in terms of style if not scale, also by Redrow, and just look at the prices those houses sell for.

Sales at The Mill are pretty strong as well from what I hear, despite people deriding the design on here. Obviously a general lack of properties doesn't help but I also think those who care about urban design are somewhat out of touch with what the general population actually wants.

Most people are just happy to own their own home at all these days.
