TAYLOR WIMPY’S plans for 2,500 homes, earmarked for land just below the M4 between Pontprennau and Lisvane, were approved by Cardiff Council’s planning committee subject to a decision by the Welsh Government on whether or not to call in the final say on the application.
Plans have been revealed for a new special education needs school in Fairwater and a proposal for a 5G mast in Radyr has been resubmitted.
Here are the stand out planning applications that were made to and approved by Cardiff Council recently.
Concerns were raised by residents and local ward councillors about plans for the 2,500 homes, which could include a supermarket, schools and a GP.
One councillor for Lisvane, Cllr Emma Reid-Jones said the road infrastructure in the ward is already at breaking point, adding that the development could bring the area to a standstill as well as having an impact on services and ecology.
The applicants behind the development, Taylor Wimpey, said they will fund a shuttle bus service for residents until a commercial service is provided. It could also include cycling and pedestrian routes to encourage active travel.
Plans for a new special education needs school on land to the south of Fairwater Primary School have been submitted to Cardiff Council.
The proposed development forms part of Cardiff Council’s programme
to expand the provision of special education needs education across the city, together with another plan to build a special needs school to the south of Pen Y Bryn Primary School in Llanrumney, which will be subject to a separate application, the developments will create places for 72 students.
Plans have been resubmitted for the installation of a 15-metre high 5G telecommunications mast. The proposed location for the mast is for land at Heol Isaf, adjacent to Ty Mynydd Close.
Only last month, plans to install a 20-metre 5G mast at the junction of Heol Isaf and MinY-Coed were rejected by Cardiff Council.
Applicants resubmitted their plans with designs for a smaller mast in the hope that the proposal will be considered more acceptable.
An italian bakery and deli has been granted planning permission to extend its opening hours.
Grano, on Caerphilly Road in Birchgrove has had the conditions of its original application varied to allow it to open between the hours of 8am and 10pm.
The cafe was originally permitted to open between the hours of 8am and 6pm from Monday to Saturday, and from 9am to 2pm on Sundays.
The new planning permission also allows Grano to operate as a restaurant.
