Major plans to regenerate a brownfield site in the heart of Cardiff have been revealed.
 
The development of 40-acre site on Dumballs Road could create up to 2,500 new homes alongside 54,000 square metres of business space.
 
The proposal will also open up access to the riverside, connecting the city centre to the bay with an uninterrupted pathway, and will provide connections between Grangetown and Butetown with a new cycle and footbridge across the River Taff.
 
The plans also include open space with a new riverside park and water taxi stop.
 
Developers Vastint UK have agreed to a contribution of 12.5% affordable housing to help Cardiff council. They added that the council agreed to sell 8.5 acres of land off Dumballs Road to Vastint UK in September 2020 to take the plans forward.
 
Now members of the public are being asked to share their views on the proposals.
The consultation will run until February 19 and an outline planning application is due to be submitted in the early part of this year.
 
Andrew Cobden, managing director of Vastint UK, said: “Cardiff has a beautiful river running through its centre but access to it has been limited for many years. We are excited to bring forward proposals that will breathe new life into the riverfront, by opening up access through a new riverside park, and provide opportunities for new jobs and housing.
 
"We have worked closely with Cardiff council, our architects, landscape team and planners to create a vision that we hope will transform this underused area of Cardiff into a thriving new district for the city and its residents.
 
"We welcome feedback from the public so we can ensure this development meets the needs of the local community.”
