Last Friday marked the end of a very intense process culminating in the BBC contracting to lease what will be our fourth big construction project, a new drama production base located in Cardiff.

As the Western Mail reported, the Wales drama centre marks another major milestone in the evolution of high quality drama based in Wales. Building on the existing success of Doctor Who and Torchwood the BBC has decided to create this new location to enable these hit programmes to co-locate with Casualty which is due to move to Wales in 2011. The plan provides the opportunity for the local favourite Pobol y Cwm to also move to the new site.

Located in Cardiff Bay the Roath Basin project is an exciting new project for the BBC and another major project is added to our already wide-ranging 'to do' list.  The next step is to secure planning consent and I will provide more details on the scheme once we cross this hurdle.
