Pegasus Group created the high quality Masterplan and Design Access Statement as well as providing urban design advice and landscape design to create Plasdwr. This unique place is Cardiff’s New Garden City, a strategic development of 7,000 dwellings to the north west of Cardiff.
Plasdŵr will be a world-class, sustainable community taking shape across 900 acres. As it evolves Plasdŵr will be one community made up of four distinct areas of individual character. The development will provide a secondary school, four primary schools, health centres, shops and offices, pubs and restaurants, leisure centres, playing fields, play areas, parks and managed heritage woodland.
Pegasus Group have created a vision that takes its inspiration from the successful design elements of the Garden City movement, existing Cardiff districts and UK and European precedents.
We worked on an early application of 930 dwellings which were approved in February 2016 and June 2016. The Outline Approval for approx 6,000 dwellings was approved in March 2017.
Pegasus Group have since then produced design codes, landscape design and gained reserved matters approval for various development parcels and continue their work on the site moving forward.
The scheme was a finalist for the Award for Design Excellence in the 2018 Planning Awards.
