New plans to knock down the Roath Park pub on City Road

Developers have renewed plans to demolish a Victorian pub on one of Cardiff’s busiest streets.

The Roath Park pub would be knocked down under the new plans, but it is not yet clear what would be built in its place.

In 2020 developers applied for planning permission to knock down the pub and replace it with a seven-storey block of 37 apartments, but they withdrew those plans in December.

Now Ventura Developments have again applied for planning permission from Cardiff Council to knock down the pub at 170 City Road.

In planning documents, Ventura said it wanted to “discover what was acceptable redevelopment”, ahead of releasing proper plans to build something on the site.

They said: “A planning application to demolish the pub and redevelop the site was refused permission by the council.

“The applicant didn’t appeal that decision, but instead proposes to engage in pre-application consultation with the council to discover what the council would regard as an acceptable form of redevelopment, prior to submitting another planning application.

“The Roath Park pub was disposed of by its previous owner Brains because of its unprofitability. It was bought by the applicant company who has no interest in re-opening the pub.

“The applicant seeks to redevelop the site with a mixed use, comprised of commercial uses on the ground floor with residential above.”

Labour councillors in Roath campaigned last year to save the pub from demolition, objecting to the previous planning application, while hundreds petitioned against the plans.
