The City of Cardiff Council planning committee has approved Redrow’s £2bn ‘garden city’ in Cardiff, UK.
The first phase of Plasdŵr, comprising 920 new homes, was approved at the end of last year, and now the remaining elements of the project have been given the go-ahead.
The project will feature around 6,000 homes on a 900-acre site bordering Fairwater, St Fagans, Danescourt anf Radyr.
Plasdŵr will also contribute a total of £55.7M in community benefits including four primary schools, a secondary school, health centres, shops, offices, pubs and restaurants, leisure centres, playing fields and parks and preserved woodland.
Wayne Rees, project director for Plasdŵr at Redrow, said: “Plasdŵr will deliver the homes and community our capital needs, helping fuel economic growth.
“Integration with existing local communities and infrastructure is key to the success of Plasdŵr, helping it truly become a ‘place’. We are working closely with stakeholders to bring both current and new residents together as neighbours.”
Construction on the project’s first homes will commence later this month, with the first residents of Plasdŵr expected to move in during the autumn of 2017.
Redrow is planning to hold a meeting for the wider community to discuss the development and any queries.
