The Velindre Cancer Centre have published a notification of pre-planning application for a proposed new development.
Their “Transforming Cancer Services” website describes the development, “The project comprises the new Velindre Cancer Centre including the Specialist Cancer Treatment Centre, Centre for Learning, Research and Development (combined maximum floorspace of 40,000 sq. m), primary means of access (from Coryton interchange), emergency access (via Hollybush Estate), temporary construction accesses, parking, energy centre, landscape works, pedestrian paths, and Maggie’s Centre.”
The application documents are available to view and comments are welcome.
Should you wish to make any comments on the proposed application please address them to:
firstname.lastname@example.org or The Urbanists, The Creative Quarter, 8a Morgan Arcade, Cardiff, CF10 1AF by May 8, 2017.
The Conservative local election candidates have published a blog post about the consultation and are asking residents for their views. The Labour candidates have pledged to consult with residents too. I’ve asked the Plaid Cymru and Liberal Democrat candidates for their party’s views.
There are concerns about the impact on Whitchurch meadows and the increased traffic that will affect Tongwynlais, Coryton and Whitchurch. Whatever your views, take the opportunity to look at the plans and have your say.
There are two more opportunities to visit the public exhibition on Friday, April 28th and Saturday, April 29th at Whitchurch Library. Comments are still welcome until May 8th.
