Do you think Guildford Crescent should become a conservation area?

The Council is consulting on a proposal to designate Guildford Crescent as a conservation area. There are 27 existing conservation areas in Cardiff which play an important role in protecting the city's heritage.

Guildford Crescent is the only remaining historic part of the inner city centre which isn't afforded protection through the planning system.

The 15 buildings were constructed between 1851 and 1880. They are significant as they represent the traditional low rise terraces which originally made up most of the southern city centre before it was redeveloped from the 1960s onwards. By designating this crescent as a conservation area, the Council aims to preserve the area's special architectural and historic interest.


The consultation process began on October 3rdand will finish on November 28th. There will be two drop-in sessions as part of an eight-week exhibition within the Cardiff Story Museum in the Hayes. Both sessions are between 10am and 12 noon on Saturday October 13thand Monday October 22nd.

Cllr Caro Wild Cabinet Member for Strategic Planning and Transport said: "As the city continues to grow, it is important to preserve the city's heritage. We hope the public give their views by attending the drop in sessions and by visiting our website to send us their comments."
