Major Development Activity Monitoring

​​​​​​​​​​​Cardiff has eight Strategic Sites (containing 500 or more dwellings and / or significant employment uses), which have been allocated through the Local Development Plan (LDP) to help meet the need for new homes and jobs across the city.

To help ensure that these new homes and jobs form part of well planned communities, the Local Development Plan sets out a ‘master ​planning’ approach to the delivery of the strategic sites, where supporting infrastructure such as sustainable transport corridors, schools, community facilities and green spaces will be provided as part of the developments.

A series of monitoring documents have been produced to provide a regularly updated summary of development activity at each location, including details of:

  • Planning Histories: Where new applications have been received and which applications have been determined (consented),
  • Development Activity: Which sites are currently under construction and an indication of how many homes / premises have been completed,
  • Infrastructure Provision: The supporting infrastructure that has been agreed through S106 (legal) agreements and details of those works and other associated projects that are in the pipeline, or are currently being undertaken.
