Living Streets Cymru is working with local residents to explore ways to make the streets in Plasnewydd, Cardiff better for walking. Plasnewydd is already a great place to live and visit. But how can we make it even better for people walking and cycling?
As part of a new project with Cardiff Council – Streets for Health – we will explore ways to improve this vibrant area of the city for walking and cycling.
This project will look at the issues that matter to you, so whether you want to make changes to car parking, speeding traffic, pavement maintenance, streets lighting or simply want more places to stop and rest, make sure you get involved and tell us your views.
You can let us know your views and ideas by taking part in any of the following activities:
Community drop-in session, The Gate Arts Centre
Wednesday 4 March, 11.00 – 16.00
Come and have a chat with us at the Gate Arts Centre. We’ll have maps of the area so that you can tell us what sort of improvements you think could make Plasnewydd a healthier space to be in. We can also help you complete our survey.
Community drop-in session, Roath Real Food Market
Saturday 14 March, 9.30am – 1pm
Come and sit with us in our parklet at the Roath Real Food Market, located in the Mackintosh Club car park. We’ll have maps of the area so that you can tell us what sort of improvements you think could make Plasnewydd a healthier space to be in. We can also help you complete our survey.

If you're passionate about Plasnewydd and would like to get more involved in the project and improving the area, this is the session for you. Living Streets Cymru is looking to support you to continue to make this special part of Cardiff a great place to live and spend time in. There are lots of ways Living Streets Cymru can support individuals to take action, including setting up a Local Group.
Cardiff Council has recently published its Transport Vision to 2030 ‘Changing how we move around a growing city’ with a commitment to rolling out a ‘Streets for Health’ initiative across the city. This approach would enable our city’s streets to become healthy, green, safe and child-friendly spaces and encourage more walking and cycling. Streets for Health is run in partnership with Living Streets and Mark Drane from Urban Habitats and supported by Cardiff Council and it will collect the views of residents in Plasnewydd on this approach.
