including 5 new schools
around 40% green space
From the outset, Plasdŵr has been planned using Redrow’s placemaking principles and inspired by Ebenezer Howard’s ideal. Characterised by a vibrant ‘town centre’ with green spines radiating from it, and five district neighbourhoods, each with its own character, Plasdŵr will be a flagship example of garden city planning.
To ensure its sustainability, Plasdŵr has been designed so residents have everything they need within the community including four dual or triple entry primary schools, plus a secondary school with up to 2,000 places. Community facilities will feature throughout Plasdŵr, with one main centre featuring shops, offices and community buildings and three further local centres each with a central square and a primary school. Providing an abundance of informal and formal areas of green space has been key to creating the garden city environment at Plasdŵr.
