Cowbridge Road East Environmental Improvements



Introduction

Cardiff Council is proposing improvements to the street environment of a section of Cowbridge Road East which is home to a range of local shops and services which are valued by the community. The project forms part of the Council’s Neighbourhood Renewal Schemes Programme, and aims to deliver pedestrian improvements including footway widening and resurfacing, rain gardens/planting and street furniture.

What's Happening Now?

An initial consultation exercise has now been carried out.  A number of leaflets were delivered to the surrounding area including posters which were placed in Amaze Playz and Cardiff Auto Repair. We received some constructive feedback and this feedback will help to develop the detailed design plans which will be shared for public consultation later this year.

Thank you all for your comments.

Next Steps...

We are pleased to announce that we have chosen a shortlist of three local artists to put forward their designs for the new crossing on Cowbridge Road East as part of the proposed environmental improvements.

We worked in partnership with Chapter Arts Centre to choose three artists out of more than 50 applicants. The successful shortlisted artists are: MARCA Design, Trin Brierley, and Steffan Dafydd.

All submissions were of a high standard, and the final selection was very difficult. However, we are excited with the shortlist and we look forward to seeing their designs.

The chosen artists will develop designs for the crossing that will be colourful and original. The new crossing will be bespoke to the location whilst also providing a safe place to cross for all users. The community will then be consulted to choose their favourite of the three designs.
