Trade Street Gardens, Cardiff

Artist’s impression of the proposed development


Packaged Living is bringing forward proposals for 331 high-quality, private homes to rent. The development will have an active ground floor with commercial space to support local independent businesses and provide space for pop up community events.

The purpose of this public consultation website is to provide information about the proposals, seek your feedback and allow you to register for updates on the project.

Project update

Under Section 17 of the Planning (Wales) Act 2015 we have launched our pre-application consultation on the proposals. This website provides you with the opportunity to view the draft planning application documents and leave feedback on the proposals.

To view the draft planning application documents click on the ‘Consultation documents’ tab above.

Where is the site?

Trade Street Gardens is located within the heart of Cardiff City Centre on Trade Street, a short walk from Cardiff Central station and the retail/leisure hub of the city.

The site lies adjacent to the proposed Embankment regeneration development. Redeveloping the brownfield site is an opportunity to create a gateway into the proposed Embankment development and will be a prominent building on Trade Street and in the new quarter.
