Talbot Green Developments has received outline planning permission for a £200m town centre development in Wales that will include a Sainsbury’s supermarket and 344,000 sq ft of additional retail space.
The development will be based on the outskirts of Talbot Green towards Pontyclun and will serve Llantrisant and neighbouring villages in south Wales.
It features a 108,000 sq ft Sainsbury’s supermarket, a department store, 40 High Street retail brands and a leisure and entertainment quarter that will contain a multi-screen cinema complex, cafes, restaurants, bars and a hotel.
The scheme will also comprise office space, civic and community facilities, residential apartments and townhouses and improvements to the local highways network.
The town centre development will be built on mainly brownfield land, including the sites of the former Purolite and Staedtler factories, alongside the A473, 10 miles north-west of Cardiff and close to the M4 motorway.
In October 2012, an application for detailed planning consent for the Sainsbury’s store was submitted and will be the first phase of the development to proceed if granted.
Rhonda Cynon Taf County Borough Council granted outline permission following extensive consultation with the local community and other stakeholders following several public exhibitions.
Talbot Green Developments is a joint venture between Scarborough Development Group and Valad Europe.
