Bro Tathan is a Welsh Government owned development opportunity now embarking on the next phase in its exciting evolution to create a groundbreaking destination for business offering a range of development and occupational opportunities. 

Arranged over a site of approximately 1,200 acres together with its own fully operational runway, Bro Tathan is strategically located within the Cardiff Airport and Bro Tathan Enterprise Zone, 5 miles from Cardiff Airport and within easy reach of the M4 motorway and major UK cities.

Owners, Welsh Government continue to invest heavily in the infrastructure to create a thriving environment for business at Bro Tathan. This includes the creation of a civilian operated runway plus a new access road which has significantly improved connectivity into the site. Identified as a strategic employment location by the local authority, Bro Tathan is subject to a number of current and pending major planning applications. This will enable quick and serviced solutions for a wide range of occupiers, including those that may require airside services.
