Controversial proposals being considered in Cardiff tonight could lead to the biggest expansion of the capital in fifty years.
Cardiff council's preferred development plan would see a very different vision for the city by 2026, with 45,000 new homes being built
They estimate by 2026 there will be another 40,000 jobs available in the Capital, which it's thought will bring the total population of Cardiff to 408,000, over 50,000 more than today.
The council believes its plans will meet increasing demand to live and work in Cardiff.
But opponents of the plan are worried about how transport will cope, the loss of greenfield sites, and if there will be a detrimental impact on the surrounding areas as the Capital expands.
