Cardiff needs more housing to meet growing demand and forecast economic and demographic growth, and north west Cardiff has long been identified as an area suitable for sustainable development.

To meet this need, landowner, the Plymouth Estate, and development partner, Redrow Homes, are developing Cardiff’s 21st Century garden city – Plasdŵr.

Set within 900 acres (368ha) of land entirely owned by the Plymouth Estate, Plasdŵr will be developed over the next 15 to 20 years, bringing around 7,000 new homes plus shops, offices, schools, health centres, leisure centres, pubs and restaurants.

The proposals were prepared to deliver the housing need identified in the City of Cardiff Council’s Local Development Plan (LDP). 

Redrow is shortly to begin work on the first 126 homes of Phase 1 of Plasdŵr – a total of 630 homes to the north and south of Llantrisant Road – with the first residents expected to move in in the autumn. While these developments could stand alone in helping to meet identified housing need, they are part of the Plasdŵr Masterplan, forming the very first phase of Cardiff’s garden city.
