The first round of public engagement for the Cardiff Hendre Lakes development and Cardiff Parkway railway station has now come to a close. We held a period of early engagement to introduce ourselves to the local community and get your thoughts on our proposals.
More than 250 people came along to our drop-in events in St Mellons and Marshfield and we received nearly 200 responses online and through the post. We would like to give our thanks to everyone who came to meet us at an event and shared their thoughts.
We will now continue to work on the design for the scheme, taking the feedback we have received into account as we further develop our plans. Once our proposals have been finalised, we will be presenting them for the community to consider in a second stage of formal, statutory consultation in spring 2020.
Nigel Roberts, Executive Chairman of Cardiff Parkway Developments, said: “Our period of early engagement has been a great success. I was both incredibly proud to share our plans with the community and delighted with the reaction we received.
“The team has worked tirelessly over a number of years to make this project a reality, but the hard work doesn’t stop there. We will now go away to work on our plans based on the thoughts and ideas people have given us, before we come back out to the public in spring this year. We hope that even more people will look to get involved then.”
Vaughan Gething, Member of the National Assembly (AM) for Cardiff South and Penarth, commented: “The Cardiff Parkway project is extremely good news for people across the City of Cardiff, particularly for my constituents living in the east of Cardiff. The development of the Cardiff Parkway Train Station has been a long held ambition of mine to ensure the east of the City is better connected. This will bring jobs, growth and investment to our constituency and I’m delighted with the plans.”
