We are delighted to announce that the planning application, on behalf of Velindre NHS Trust for the replacement Velindre Cancer Centre, was unanimously approved by Cardiff Council Planning committee.  There has been considerable discussion over the proposals in the local community and in the media.  Planning committee rigorously examined the application including the environmental mitigation measures that are set out in the Environmental Statement.  The Urbanists are acting as planning consultants on behalf of the Trust and have managed the project through the complex planning process.

Steve Ham, Chief Executive of Velindre NHS Trust said: “The approval of our outline planning application is a significant milestone for the population we serve across South East Wales.

“Although it has served us and our patients well for more than 60 years; our current Cancer Centre is no longer fit for purpose. More and more people across South East Wales require cancer treatment and our care. Because of that continued increase in demand on our services, we must do things differently.

“As we move in to this next phase, we’re looking forward to continuing to work with our patients and our local community to ensure the new Velindre Cancer Centre and its location can benefit everyone.”
