Cardiff Council’ Deposit Local Development Plan (2014) seeks provision for allotments and/or community growing areas including community farms, communal gardens, orchards and community harvesting schemes on new residential developments over 46 units. 

Cardiff values the role of allotments and community growing areas in contributing towards sustainable communities, healthy living and improved interaction between different social and age groups.

Public Health Wales has engaged a Public Health Specialist who deals with Planning issues. The Cardiff and Vale University Health Board has designed a template which they use for responding to planning applications for large housing developments.
