Pegasus Group has been shortlisted for a prestigious planning award Plasdŵr project.

The project has been recognised as it’s been earmarked to to provide 7000 dwellings in North West of Cardiff. 

It is one of eight projects to be shortlisted for the ‘Award for Design Excellence’ at the Planning Awards, run by Planning magazine in conjunction with 'PlanningResource' and 'PlacemakingResource.'

Pegasus are a planning and design consultancy who have 11 offices nationwide including one in Cirencester which was their founding branch.

They created the high-quality Masterplan, Design Codes, Design Access Statement and First Phase RMA Layout whilst also providing urban design advice and landscape design to help create Plasdŵr.

Set within 900 acres, the land for Plasdŵr is entirely owned by the Plymouth Estate and will be developed over the next 15 to 20 years in a number of phases.

It will bring a mix of apartments, town houses and luxury family homes together with shops, offices, schools, health centres, leisure centres, pubs and restaurants.

Plasdŵr’s master plan was approved in March 2017 with Redrow Homes starting work on Phase1 last April.

Design Director Ed Turner, said: “Plasdŵr will be a world-class, sustainable community and we are proud of the work we have done to help bring this amazing vision to reality.

"Everyone likes to have their work recognised, but to be shortlisted for these national awards is especially satisfying. We are one of only three non-London projects shortlisted for Design Excellence.

“We have created a vision that takes its inspiration from the successful design elements of the Garden City movement, existing Cardiff districts and UK and European precedents.”
