As non-essential retail begins to open across Cardiff Central today, the first phase of a plan to keep visitors safe in the City Centre is entering into force. This includes staffed welcome points, a one way system and some road closures in the centre.

I’ve asked the Council how this information can be better presented for those with sight loss – but if you have any other questions please email me at and I’ll contact the Council to ask.
