Phase Two of Cathays Regeneration Project due to commence

Improvement works to Llanbleddian Gardens are due to start this week as part of the Cathays Regeneration Project. The project will see local residents benefit from enhanced facilities and improved green spaces, developed by Cardiff Council and South Wales Police alongside other local organisations. 

Funded by Section 106 developer's contributions for public open spaces, the new design is based on feedback from consultation events which took place in 2016. Features will include a new circular bench, new provision of bins, paving and bollards to prevent parking on the grass, a new wildflower area and a new seating area. 

Phase one of the project saw improvements made to Ruthin Gardens which included a new circular bench, new paving and bollards, access improvements, an information board and areas of wildflower planting to improve the environment and discourage illegal parking. 

Cabinet Member for Culture & Leisure, Cllr Peter Bradbury, said:  "It is essential that our residents can enjoy and take pride in their surroundings and the Cathays Regeneration project aims to improve the quality of green spaces which can have a real impact on local communities.  The work being carried out at Llanbleddian Gardens will transform what is currently a little used public space into an attractive communal area for all to use. 

As part of the scheme there will be planters available for community groups to adopt and look after, to apply for this please contact Emma Robson by 

Funding is actively been sought to begin improvements to the final phase of the project; Cogan Gardens.
