The latest designs for Cardiff Hendre Lakes, a proposed new business district to the south of St Mellons Business Park which will be served by Cardiff Parkway railway station, will today (Wednesday 05 August) be revealed to the public as a five-week statutory consultation period gets underway.  

The 90,000sqm Cardiff Hendre Lakes development, which includes Cardiff Parkway railway station, aims to bring connectivity, jobs and investment to South Wales. The development will make a significant contribution to the regeneration of east Cardiff and the growth ambitions of the Cardiff Capital Region. The development has the potential to support up to 6,000 jobs, as well as becoming a transport hub, helping people access other employment opportunities across South Wales and beyond.

Drawing on the conclusions from conversations with key stakeholders, feedback from the local community during an initial period of public engagement activity in 2019 and the design development process, key features of the proposals include:

Nigel Roberts, Chairman of Cardiff Parkway Developments, said: We have taken feedback from our previous public engagement sessions, both with the local community and through engagement with other key stakeholders. We were overwhelmed by the positive and helpful feedback, particularly from the local community, and would like to once again thank everyone who has shared their ideas with us.

“Despite the challenges of the last few months, behind the scenes we have been working hard to continue developing our proposals. As we gear up to submit our outline planning application, we are holding a formal, pre-application statutory consultation to provide stakeholders and local people with an opportunity to share their views.

“Our proposals are for a sustainable, well-connected and safe development. This unique development will bring investment to the region, create new employment opportunities, and connect people to a historic landscape. The project is a step closer to reality as we hit this next milestone of the statutory consultation and we look forward to hearing what people think.”

A five-week consultation period is running from Wednesday 05 August to Wednesday 09 September, during which the local community are being asked to provide feedback on the proposals. People can find out more about the project and give their views online.
