Velindre Cancer Centre, Cardiff
A £180m health project including EIA
We were appointed as planning consultants to secure outline planning permission for a new Cancer Centre, an education institute, associated infrastructure including access, vehicle parking, public realm and landscape works. We also managed, edited, and collated the comprehensive Environmental Impact Assessment.
The application was submitted following an extensive informal and formal pre-application engagement process with the local community, stakeholders and formal consultees including NRW and Cardiff Council. We secured outline permission for the scheme (up to 38,000sqm) in 2017 and have since secured permissions for: discharge of pre-commencement conditions; changes to construction accesses; and scheme variations.
The planning permission included some significant pre-commencement conditions to ensure that it delivered enhanced green infrastructure and other community benefits.
Our work requires very close on-going working with the client group, the local authority, and stakeholders throughout this process to ensure that all relevant consents are in place.
