Cardiff Gas Works

National Grid and Wales & West Utilities has sold a former gas works site to Cardiff Council – who’re looking to bring forward a residential development on the land.

The site, in Grangetown, is being targeted for redevelopment to deliver 500 much needed homes as the city bids to build 2,000 new homes in the city.

Lynda Thorne, Cabinet Member for Housing and Communities at Cardiff Council, said: “Work is already underway at the nearby Channel View estate which will provide better connectivity to green spaces and facilities and improved sustainable transport networks for existing residents, as well as much needed additional affordable housing for the local community. We now have the opportunity to link these two developments and deliver a truly transformative regeneration of this part of the city.

She added: “The Ferry Road gas holder is a well-known Cardiff landmark and I think it’s very exciting that the structure will be incorporated into the development of site, retaining a key part of Cardiff’s heritage.”
