Great more student flats!! :lol:

but seriously folks... That's good news, what would be truly amazing news would be progress on the arena or will a certain pandemic change that ambition? hope not as that could presumably have a direct impact on the future development of motorpoint arena site and perhaps even guildford crescent :?:

My understanding on the arena is that a preferred partner will be appointed in October, full planning in April 2021, construction starts Nov 2021, opens on April 2024. Sited on the car park of the County Hall.

It looked very nice down there yesterday and a lot of restaurants catching up on lost time! Giovanni's struck me as a very good socially distanced option, and with the reflection it caught my eye! Little did I know that a CardiffWalesmap forummer was in the thick of the action!! Hope you and your wife had an enjoyable meal! :)

Yes thanks it was very nice. We chose it for the reason you said. Plenty of space which gave a real comfortable and safe feel. They have done well there. The manager did tell us he has more umbrellas on order As quite a few people were asking for a table but leaving as they didn’t want to sit in the sun.
