Carlyle Developments have submitted plans to build 40 new “executive-style” houses on a 10-acre site in Lisvane.
More than 44 trees would be felled to make way for the stylish houses, including mature ash, oak, sycamore and cherry trees.
Each red-brick home would have six bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a double garage.
