The responsibilities of the Development Corporation were also in the hands of Cardiff County Council (which Cardiff Harbour Authority is part of), the Welsh Development Agency, the Countryside Council for Wales and the Vale of Glamorgan Council. They wanted this project to create a new environment in which people will want to live, work and play in. It was to provide more housing and job opportunities and to also link the city centre with the waterfront. More open space was to be created with a development in leisure and the industry. It was said that these will help to encourage people in the communities of the area.

It was estimated that the Cardiff Bay Development Corporation had achieved 16,750 new jobs, 4,800 new housing units,79 hectares of open space, 695,000 sq metres of non residential developments, 327 hectares of land reclamation and 42 kilometres of roads built or upgraded.
