The proposals for the 38,000 sq m building is central to transforming cancer services in south east wales, to replace the existing Velindre Centre with a new purpose-built facility in a natural landscape setting.  The planning submission follows an extensive community and stakeholder engagement, and pre-application notification process.  This has allowed the development team to get a broad understanding of key areas of interest being raised by the local community.  

The complex outline application was also subject to Environmental Impact Assessment which was managed by the Urbanists with specialist assessments provided by Mott Macdonald and HLM.  The development team was led by Mott MacDonald, with Hassell Architects.
