- As per the March 2022 leasing plans, Unit 21 has been let to Damaged Society. That being said, there is no sign of movement in the unit!

Providing Mint Velvet open in unit LG58, this will leave The Hayes fully let.

Hill Street

- Units LG80-83 (previously Red Hot Buffet), remain under offer/in solicitors hands. The hoardings around this unit are a complete eye sore.

Had a walk through the centre when I was home recently and Cathedral Walk looks very empty. Also there seems to be no news on the Debenhams unit still. Leisure must be the best option to use some of the empty space but I imagine the rents are prohibitive.

Planning app 22/01661/MNR if the link doesn’t work

Looks like it will replace All Saints!

It will be a shame if the Hayes loses any further retail to A3...though having said that all those that have opened are quality

The Hayes is a great area for restaurants and is a natural extension to the Cafe Quarter. There is an over provision of retail in Cardiff so this is a better use of excess space.

Also didn't rate All Saints chances of going on much longer, never saw anyone in there.

Opening soon are Ivy Asia, Giggling Squid, The Cardiff Townhouse and then Gaucho assuming they get planning. Should be a nice buzzing street.

I think the old Floris/Foli Folie unit is going to be Penhaligons Luxury Fragrance Boutique. Currently recruiting staff for November opening.

Hoping that All Saints go into Gap as it's empty rather than displacing Paperchase
