Planning permission granted for fourth Plasdŵr development


Planning permission has been granted for the latest Plasdŵr development site, Cwrt Sant Ioan near Danescourt, where our lead developer Redrow Homes will build the next 71 two, three and four-bedroom homes.

Cwrt Sant Ioan sits on a 16.5-acre site to the south of Llantrisant Road bordering Radyr, Danescourt and Fairwater. These 71 homes are the first of approximately 200 planned for the site, which will eventually sit along one of the main routes into Plasdŵr.

Preparatory work is already underway at the development. A new entrance is currently being created from Llantrisant Road, and infrastructure is being put in place for utilities to support the new homes. Work on the houses is expected to start in the spring with the first residents moving into their homes in the winter.

Cwrt Sant Ioan will feature a mixture of two and three-story homes in styles created specifically for Plasdŵr. Up to 15% of the homes at Cwrt Sant Ioan will be affordable housing, with a mix of one to three-bedroom apartments and houses planned across its three phases.

Plasdŵr has been designed with active travel in mind. Walking and cycling will be the easiest ways to get around, followed by public transport. When it’s complete, a network of cycle routes will run through the development, connecting with the Ely and Taff trails and linking Plasdŵr with the rest of Cardiff. The first sections of these new cycle routes will be created through Cwrt Sant Ioan.

Plasdŵr Project Director, Wayne Rees, said: “Each new development brings us a step closer to achieving our vision for Plasdŵr. Cwrt Sant Ioan will bring contemporary homes, public open space, and will see the beginning of the sustainable transport network which will eventually run through the whole of Plasdŵr, connecting its five neighbourhoods and leading to key destinations in Cardiff and beyond.”
