We have some good news for you, inhabitants of Cardiff looking for a new home or soon-to-be Cardiffians! Yesterday was the day of the monthly meeting of the Cardiff Council Planning Committee. We can see they try and abide to the Preferred Strategy for the Local Development Plan - which is still out for consultation until 14th December - as they granted most petitioners the right to build more homes.
Indeed, the Council gave the green light for the demolition of the Penhill Bowling Club on Pencisely Road in order to build 8 houses instead. Similarly there is some demolition and reconversion in the air for the Cardiff Arms Hotel on Railway Street in Splott, as the hotel is about to be turned into 9 apartments and the ground and first floor extensions are to be destroyed.
Furthermore, 7 residential flats are to be formed by the conversion from commercial unit into accommodation of the building on 11 Crwys Road in Plasnewydd, and the 44 Sandringham Road in Roath will be converted into 2 self-contained flats.
The Council unanimously decided, to the relief of the inhabitants of Pontcanna, to refuse the proposal to turn Pontcanna Pine warehouse on King’s Road into a convenience store.
Finally, we will have to wait until January to know whether the East Bute Dock will welcome a wakeboard and waterski park, as the Council decided to visit the site before giving their final say.
If you have trouble locating the places aforementioned have a look at the map created by Walesonline.
The new accommodation planned for will not be on the market before some time but if you are looking for accommodation right now we do have offers for you, come and see us or just check out our website!
