Cardiff Living is an exciting development partnership between the City of Cardiff Council and national developer Wates Residential.
It has been developed by the City of Cardiff Council to help tackle the housing need across the city by building the right homes in the right places. 

The programme will deliver up to 1500 new properties across Cardiff over the next 10 years. At least 40% of these homes (around 600) will be council homes available for rent through the Council’s existing allocations process​​​​​​External link opens in a new window ​​
A small percentage of the new council homes will be made available for ownership through the Council’s Assisted Home Ownership scheme. This scheme is aimed at first time buyers who cannot afford to buy a new home without financial assistance in the form of an equity share (normally a 70:30 percent split). 

Around 900 homes (60%) will be available for purchase on the open market through Wates Living Space Homes under the brand Cardiff Living​​​​​External link opens in a new window ​​

There are 40 sites across Cardiff that will be built in 3 phases from 2017 to 2025.  

Planning applications have already been approved for the following sites (some subject to Section 106 legal agreements):

  • Braunton and Clevedon
  • Willowbrook
  • Ty To Maen
  • Walker House
  • Llanrumney Depot

There will be an opportunity to comment directly to the developer prior to the submission of the formal planning application.

Plan will be available on this website before the planning applications are submitted to the Local Planning Authority. Residents surrounding the site will be informed by post when this information is available. 

Any subsequent planning application will be publicised by the local planning authority and any comments provided in response to the pre planning consultation will not prejudice your ability to make representations to the local planning authority on any related planning application.  You should note that any comments submitted may be placed on the public file.
