New housing development at Llanelli Waterside
We have recently started on our latest housing development in the Llanelli Waterside regeneration project.
We're building 25 new homes on land off The Avenue, close to Llanelli’s coastline. The £3.3 million development will comprise of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom houses and 2 bedroom bungalows.
The Llanelli Coast Joint Venture is a flagship partnership between Carmarthenshire County Council and the Welsh Government to deliver an ambitious regeneration strategy for Llanelli Waterside. This latest residential development will provide affordable homes in a desirable location near cultural and leisure facilities, open waters and green parkland. Huge investment has already been made in the Waterside area including the residential developments at North Dock and Machynys, the Dragon 24 office development and renovation of the harbour at Burry Port.
Our Executive Director of Customer Services, Richard Davies added: “The Llanelli Waterside development is an ambitious and promising venture that is already transforming the waterfront into a thriving new business, leisure and residential community. We are delighted to be increasing the provision of affordable homes in the area and in doing so investing in the regeneration of Llanelli.”
This development has the potential to act as a catalyst for further regeneration activity which will improve the linkage of Llanelli Town with the coastal area.
Speaking of the development Cllr Tegwen Devichand, Executive Board Member for Housing at Carmarthenshire County Council said: “This is fantastic news for the Llanelli area, and proves our commitment to providing quality, affordable homes for local people. We are proud to be working with Gwalia to deliver this scheme at Llanelli Waterside, which will not only address housing need, but also raise the bar in terms of the standard of affordable housing available locally.”
Carmarthenshire-based contractors Tycroes are now onsite with occupation scheduled for autumn 2015.
