Work starts on 1,500 Cardiff houses amid record interest


A record-breaking number of people have registered an interest in new homes soon to be built on the edge of Cardiff, it has been revealed. Persimmon Homes and the company’s sister brand Charles Church is preparing to start work on 1,500 new homes, a primary school and sports pitches in south Creigiau on land just north of junction 33 of the M4. As part of the planning permission Persimmon Homes is contributing circa £14m in S106 contributions towards the provision of affordable housing, secondary education school, off site play areas and sustainable transport measures. In addition, Persimmon Homes will be constructing a new state-of-the-art two-form entry primary school and associated nursery on site, two full-sized playing fields, allotments and other play areas. Te site will also provide a key location for the new South East Metro, which will pass through the development and link to a new Park and Ride and Employment Area being delivered as part of the exciting mixed use scheme. Planning permission was granted last week – and building work will start in days, with the first homes going on sale from an on-site sales cabin on August 24. Persimmon and Charles Church has been asking househunters to register their interest online – and the
