The Welsh capital has approved 3 major developments.

  • a new museum,
  • a 248-bedroom hotel,
  • a very large student accommodation schemes.

On the 9th of November, the council confirmed to ‘The Planner’ that the schemes are subject to conditions and legal agreements.

A site in Cardiff Bay is the suggested location for the Military Medicine Museum.

A council report said:

“The proposed building is an acceptable and appropriate development for the site and would bring about a positive economic, tourism and cultural benefit to the area.”

Additionally, the report says, the H-shaped student scheme in Butetown which will be providing accommodation for 711 people, will;

“enhance the appearance and amenity of the area”.

The redevelopment of the grade II listed Custom House building in the city centre will be involved in the hotel scheme.

Meanwhile, the adjoining former York Hotel will be demolished and replaced.

“The proposals bring back into beneficial community use the grade II listed Custom House and do not adversely impact on the listed building or its setting.”

In the Central Cardiff Enterprise Zone, new plans have been lodged for a momentous mixed-use development that will include more than 27,870 square metres of office space.
