People in Grangetown are being asked for their views on the proposed redevelopment of the Channel View estate in Cardiff.

Following extensive engagement with residents on the estate over the last few years, wider community consultation is now underway inviting residents who live nearby, people who work in the ward, local businesses and organisations to comment on plans to regenerate this area of Grangetown to deliver new housing for existing and new residents.

The redevelopment of the estate willdeliver a mixture of high quality, affordable homes and privately owned homes for the existing community as well improved connectivity for people living in the area to public transport, local facilities, public spaces and other parts of the city.

The regeneration proposals contribute to the Council’s target of delivering 2,000 much-needed new council homes for the city.

A masterplan showing how the estate could be redeveloped has been produced as well as the detail for the proposed first phase of redevelopment which focuses on the replacement of the existing high-rise tower block.

Cardiff Council is keen to hear from residents on the estate again as well as people from the wider community about the plans which would deliver around 400 new homes, including older people’s accommodation, and a more pleasant public realm.  Due to the impact of the national pandemic the council is unable to hold face to face public engagement events and therefore an on-line consultation process is underway throughout November.

Cabinet Member for Housing and Communities, Cllr Lynda Thorne, said: “Channel View is a strong and vibrant community within Grangetown but there are a number of issues with the condition of the current estate so we are keen to progress this exciting regeneration that will bring benefits for the whole area.

“Our proposals will create amore attractive local environment for everyone with impressive architecture, a strong emphasis on place-making and incorporating innovative, green infrastructure.

“Using modern methods of construction, these plans will create high quality, affordable properties with high energy standards to help address the significant housing demand in the city.

“We are committed to involving local people throughout the design and development process of this exciting scheme and want to encourage residents, businesses and anyone with an interest in this area to tell us their views.”
