117-118 St Marys Street: Pre-Application Consultation

117-118 St Mary Street, Cardiff, CF10 1DY


This is notification of commencement of the Pre-Application Consultation Stage, in line with statutory requirements of the Planning (Wales) Act 2015. The date of commencement is 1st November 2021, and all responses must be received by 28th November 2021.


What are the proposals?


“Change of use, internal reconfiguration, first and second floor rear extension, and single storey rooftop extension to provide 12no. residential flats at the upper floors of 117-118 St Mary Street. Creation of a new residential entrance and external alterations to 118 St Mary Street”.


Following this consultation, we will be submitting a planning application this Winter to take the project forward. The proposed residential development will deliver much needed dwellings in the heart of Cardiff City Centre located just 330m north from Central Station Square.


The application site is located within a highly sustainable location within Cardiff City Centre. However, the upper floors have been vacant for over 3 years, meaning that they have not been able to fulfil their designated office use. The proposed development would therefore provide 12no. residential flats on the upper floors of 117-118 St Mary Street, ensuring that the important historic asset is put back into beneficial use. 


The supporting reports and plans demonstrate that the proposed development will respect the character of the area having considered the scale, massing, and height of the adjacent buildings, and that all technical matters have been positively addressed.
