Cardiff expansion vote

Councillors in Cardiff will today vote on plans to build more than 45,000 homes in and around the Welsh capital.

The local development plan sets out the shape of Cardiff over the next 14 years. It says over half the homes will be built on brownfield sites, with the rest on land yet to be developed.

The blueprint includes plans for:

  • 40,000 new jobs and 45,000 new homes
  • Improved transport links in and around the city
  • Protected countryside and heritage
  • 'Roath Basin' - a mixed-use scheme including offices, residential, retail and leisure
  • Cardiff Central Enterprise Zone

Today's vote will be followed by a public consultation and more work on the plans.
