Butetown community asked to ‘drop-in’ to share views on the future of Canal Park


Butetown residents are being asked to help develop a new masterplan for Canal Park by sharing their views on the park at a drop-in session to be held at Butetown Pavilion.

The session, which will mark the launch of a community consultation, will take place on Wednesday 29thNovember, from 3pm - 7pm.

Cabinet Member for Culture, Parks and Events, Cllr Jennifer Burke, said: "This is an important green space for the local community and we genuinely want to hear what they have to say about how they use the park now, and what they want from it in the future.

"This is the community's chance to influence the designs at an early stage and I'd encourage as many people as possible to take part either by attending this session, or by taking part in the online consultation when it launches."

The drop-in session, consultation and wider master-planning exercise is being run by The Urbanists,a team of Urban Designers, Landscape Architects and Planners who have been commissioned by Cardiff Council to prepare the masterplan for Canal Park.

Residents who are unable to attend the drop-in session can still take part in the consultation. An online survey will be available after the drop-in event.
