Cardiff Sports Success

At a time when sport is particularly high profile in Wales, EDP is very proud to have helped the Girls Day School Trust to achieve consent via planning appeal for their proposed Synthetic Turf Pitch and Sports Pavilion at Howells School in the heart of Llandaff.


Situated within the Conservation Area, adjacent to the Grade II* Listed school buildings and requiring the demolition of a section of historic boundary wall, the scheme will provide the school with a much needed boost to their sports facilities and avoid hundreds of trips by school children to locations in the wider city to access such spaces.


Andrew Crutchley appeared at the Appeal Hearing providing heritage evidence, along with Dai Lewis in respect of Landscape and Visual matters. Planning evidence and project co-ordination was provided by Geraint John of Geraint John Planning. The Inspector agreed with all of our arguments, concluding there was minor harm to the setting of the Listed Building which was outweighed by benefits accrued. He concluded that the character and appearance of the Conservation Area was preserved.


EDP looks forward to seeing the consented proposals delivered on the ground and sends our congratulations to the staff and students of the school.
