Plans were approved by Cardiff Council’s planning committee today. The proposals for the UK’s greenest hospital are for a highly sustainable, elegant new cancer centre for patients, staff and the local community. The design will be integrated into a natural setting respecting the existing ecological habitats and landscape features. The new facility will promote excellence in cancer services and support international research and development. Velindre Cancer Centre is being developed to comply with the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015.
