Planning Application Made For Llanrumney Sports Complex

Cardiff City House of Sport is pleased to announce that a planning application has been submitted for the construction of the Llanrumney Sports Complex on Cardiff University playing fields and the adjacent former Llanrumney High School playing fields.


The Project is a collaboration between Cardiff Council, Cardiff University and Cardiff City House of Sport to deliver a state-of-the-art sports complex to serve Cardiff University and the Llanrumney based rugby and football clubs. The multi- sport complex will also become the new home for Cardiff City Football Club’s Academy.

The Llanrumney complex will boast a new tier two 3G football facility, a floodlit 3G IRB standard rugby pitch, floodlit IRB/FIFA standard 3G dual-marked football/rugby pitch and future plans for a hockey field. This will provide Cardiff University with enhanced sports surfaces so as to offer its students a diverse range of sports provision, as well as the ability to provide local sports clubs access to state-of-the-art training and playing facilities at preferential community rates.

The new Academy will occupy 16 acres of the site and will utilise the former Dr. Who building structure with a new translucent canopy. The two-story accommodation block will include offices, classrooms, a lecture theatre, canteen, changing facilities and conditioning gym. The building will also house an indoor academy-standard 3G training pitch, in addition to five full size grass pitches, a 3G tier-two standard pitch and a goalkeeper-specific training area.

That will be massive, and a good chance of it being flooded in the winter

I was thinking the same thing, when it floods down there it really floods. It looks like an excellent facility and won’t be cheap, so I’d be very surprised if flood prevention wasn’t part of the development.

You can see in the photo that the bank by the river is only about 5 foot high, the same as it was when I was a kid

On the bright side, the pitches can also be used for Water Polo, surfing, waterskiing etc...

On the plus side it stops the Llanrumney Sons of Anarchy tearing the pitches up with their scramblers and quad bikes
Yeah we’ve got a Rumney chapter over here too :hehe:

Llanrumney has one way in/out. Would be useful if they connected the new complex up to the link road 🤷🏻‍♂️
There was talk of it a couple of years ago, joining Pentwyn roundabout to Ball rd via a new bridge. Cant see how they could do it though without knocking houses down
