This project has been prioritised under the new Neighbourhood Renewal Scheme Programme.  The proposal was submitted by Cathays Ward Councillors to provide improvements to selected road end closures that could then accommodate community led environmental projects e.g. planters for flowers and plants to provide habitat for wildlife – in particular, pollinating insects. Additional benefits will be to improve pedestrian and cycle access and the reduction of fly tipping and other forms of anti-social behaviour.



The widened footpath areas at the road end closures are in a poor state of repair and in need of resurfacing.  Improvements could include:


•         Resurfacing

•         Lowered kerbs for pedestrians and cyclists

•         Planters

•         Street Furniture


The aim is to start the works early in 2020. Subject to funding availability, the provision of planters at other locations will also be considered

What’s Happening Now?

We have been working to develop initial design proposals to share with the local community in order that you may have the opportunity to comment before the scheme is fully designed and delivered. 

In particular, we are keen to hear from those who will be most directly affected by the planned improvements.
