It is intended to progress the new plans as quickly as possible. Redevelopment projects on this scale do not happen overnight and there are a number of major steps to carry out before any work begins on the ground.
* Feedback from this consultation will be fed into the detailed design process.
* A detailed planning application will be submitted in late 2015.
* Construction of the project- work on the extension to the Powerhouse is planned to start in
the summer 2016 and the redevelopment of the shopping centre is planned to start later
in the year.
* Phasing – Construction work will be phased over 2-3 years. Significant attention will be
paid to how the disruption can be minimised and how the services provided by the Maelfa
Centre can be retained throughout the construction period.
