Developing news

The Taffia have moved closed to a new BBC home, with the news that Taylor Wimpey want to buy their current HQ at Llandaff.  The deal is subject to planning permission; Taylor Wimpey hope for 500 homes on the site - if the purchase price estimated by Wales Online of £20m is right, that's £40k per dwelling.

And if £20m is the right price, the BBC Wales team will be at their calculators this morning. Is it enough to make the sums work for the move to Cardiff's Central Square ?  That deal is a rental, for twenty years, with the first three rent free. And they'll need money for new technology, training, etc. Ms Bulford and The Trust will have to give final approval - like many other projects, that might not come until after the General Election, when the Charter outlook might be clearer.
