HERE is a round up of some of the stand out planning applications made to and decided by Cardiff Council last week.


A proposal to turn a grade II-listed former public convenience building into a cafe and restaurant has been approved by Cardiff Council.

The development of the disused building on Museum Avenue near Cathays Park will also include an extension to the rear.

This will contain a multi-function room for meetings and exhibitions, according to a design and access statement attached to the planning application.


Plans to extend a popular restaurant in Whitchurch have been put forward.

An application to turn a former beauty and complementary therapy clinic on Merthyr Road into a restaurant has been made by the owner of the Brook Bistro.

If approved, the wall of the former clinic, 74 Merthyr Road will be knocked through to provide an extension to the neighbouring Brook Bistro.


Cardiff Council has updated its position on proposals for two 5G masts in Canton.

Plans for a 15-metre 5G mast along the footpath on Cowbridge Road East adjacent to Western Avenue junction has been given the go ahead.

However, a planning application for an 18-metre 5G mast along the footpath at the junction of Sanatorium Road and Heol Terrell will require prior approval.

A recommendation for refusal has been given by Cardiff Council as the appearance and siting of the development would have an “adverse impact upon local amenity and the character of the surrounding residential area”.

City centre

More applications have been made to replace cladding on buildings in Cardiff.

Cardiff Council approved plans to remove the zinc cladding on Northgate House on Kingsway, and for the cladding to be replaced with fire resistant materials.

The council also approved plans to remove the existing cladding on Windsor House on Windsor Lane, and for it to be replaced with fire resistant materials.

In March, the Welsh Government made £375m available over the next three years to replace cladding on medium and high rise buildings across Wales and improve their safety.
