The site is just off Railway Street in Splott, just over the tracks from Adamsdown. It's about a minute's walk from Splott Road and less than five minutes from Clifton Street. Click here to see it on a map.
It's a gated brownfield site, 1385 metres sq (0.34 acres) in total. Right now it's just rubble and concrete... but not for long!
THE STORY SO FAR
PLANS FOR THE SITE
We held a series of community consultation activities to find out how local people want to use this land.
Eight main features were chosen as a result of their feedback and ideas:
The Dalston Curve Garden in London has been a major source of inspiration for us - take a look at their site for a sense of what can be done with a derelict space.
ALT Architecture have produced a first draft of plans for the site layout and we've gathered valuable community feedback on the requirements for the community hub. design. We're currently seeking funding to take this design process to the next stage and we'll share plans and design as soon as we can.
