Redrow Homes submitted an Outline Planning application to develop all the fields between St Fagans, Pentrebane and Radyr. Although the Community Council has submitted a detailed objection to the application, planning permission has now been granted. Detailed applications are now being submitted and some building works have begun on land south of Pentrebane Road as well as either side of Llantrisant Road. More applications will follow in due course and the development will take place over the next 10 years.
See the details at Cardiff Council's web site under planning application No. 14/02733/MJR
