Save the Norwegian Church's waterfront park setting

This petition had 10,011 supporters

We need to protect the Norwegian Church's iconic setting on the waterfront of Cardiff Bay from the proposed Associated British Ports (ABP) Dolffin Quay development. Planning Ref: 17/01848/MJR 

This development would overshadow and overcrowd the Norwegian Church and its waterfront setting, surrounding it with a collection of residential and commercial buildings, including a 24-storey apartment block.

The Norwegian Church is one of the most recognised and well-loved buildings in Cardiff Bay. Since it was reopened as a cultural centre on the waterfront of Cardiff Bay in 1992 it has been appreciated, by residents and visitors alike, as one of the few historic buildings that convey the history of Cardiff Bay; a symbol of Cardiff's rich multicultural past.

If the Dolffin Quay development were allowed to go ahead, the open views of the iconic Norwegian Church from around the Bay, and its Waterfront Park setting would be gone forever.

We call upon Cardiff Council to reject this application from ABP and ensure any future development of this area is sensitive, and preserves the Waterfront Park setting of the Norwegian Church for residents and visitors alike.
