Community revamp plan on display
Butetown
Regeneration is planned in the Butetown area
A deprived area of Cardiff Bay is to undergo a transformation to improve facilities for people living there.

Plans to regenerate the Loudoun Square part of Butetown include a new health centre, new shops and housing and a community facility.

It follows a consultation exercise in April where local people told planners what improvements they wanted.

The plans went on display on Saturday before being taken to several locations for residents to give their views.

Cardiff Council is working with Cardiff Local Health Board and Cardiff Community Housing Association on the regeneration.

ROADSHOW DATES
Monday 1500-1800 Playground of St Mary the Virgin Church in Wales Primary School
Tuesday 1500-1800 Inside Mount Stuart Primary School
Wednesday 1500-1800 Inside St Cuthbert's Primary School

Planners have been working on preliminary options for the regeneration scheme and are exhibiting the proposals at a series of roadshows.

The first roadshow was held outside the shops in Bute Street on Saturday where residents were invited to give their views.

Cardiff councillor Judith Woodman said: "These are exciting plans to regenerate the area around Loudon Square and we are keen to hear what members of the community think about the proposals which have been put forward."
