N. E Cardiff development - 2500 homes + ancilliary

PostFri Sep 06, 2019 11:28 am

An outline application by Taylor Wimpey for a further 2500 homes between Lisvane and Pontprennau has gone in.

Its reported by Wales Online:

And the application is here:

Key details on quantum of proposal:
- 2,500 new homes
- a care home
- a primary school
- land reserved for a secondary school if required (could be given popularity of Cardiff High, St Teilos and Bro Edern already)
- A1, A2 and A3 (around 50,000 square feet)
- library, community centre, doctors surgery, leisure facility (45,000 square feet)
- office and employment space (upto 300,000 square feet)
- quite a lot of green space, (52 hectares)

Further information
- It consists of two parts: one between 'Churchlands' and Cardiff Gate Business Park; the other between Churchlands and Lisvane Resevoir
- Non-resi space in three main areas: a 'district centre'; an 'employment area' next to the M4; and an 'employment-led mixed use area' abutting Cardiff Gate Business park. I think the one next to the M4 is unlikely to happen due to poor access and is being put there as a 'buffer' between the resi and noise from the M4.
- they propose including some 4 - 5 storey apartment buildings in the district centre
- Looks to be predominantly red brick, but some rendered and grey brick.
- Accessed from Ty Draw Road, Lisvane Road and Heol Glandulais, and bus gate to/from Cardiff Gate Business Park
- They propose a village square/green between the school and retail and community uses

- 'Malthouse Urban Quarter' - the district centre, with high density, terraced houses, apartments above shops and community uses
- 'Parkwall Mixed Use Community' - a mix of resi to the west and higher density and mixed use to the east as it merges into Cardiff Gate Business Park
- 'Mill Farm Fields' - to the north of the main site, with a mix of detached, semi, detached and terraced. Higher land here means layout designed to maximise views over the city
- 'Upper Ty-Draw' - to the south of the main site, mostly residential, with lower density to the south and higher density to the north as it approaches the district centre
- 'Lisvane Meadows' - to the north of the western site, mostly residential with mix of property types and mid-density
- 'Resevoir Park - to the south of the western site, abutting Lisvane resevoir. Low density, detached properties on large plots, designed to feel 'rural'.

- starting in 2020
- starting from the south (upper ty draw) and east (parkwall mixed use) of the main site over the first 5 years
- primary school and some retail / community use within 4 - 6 years
- employment mixed use area next to Cardiff Gate by 2027
- completed by 2035, with Lisvane part (near resevoir) the final phase

They need to bin that bus gate idea, otherwise residents of Pontprennau and Pentwyn will require flying cars. The roads can't cope as it so unless they are majorly upgraded (which i doubt) then access from the North East (Cardiff Gate) is a must.
