Woodlands Road, Barry

Work has started on a £3.5 million housing development in Barry that will offer 30 new homes to local people. These brand new apartments are being built on the site of the former adult training centre, and previously a maternity hospital, by contractors Pegasus Development and Greenwich Communities, for Newydd Housing Association in partnership with Vale of Glamorgan Council and the Welsh Government.

This attractive new development will offer one and two bedroom apartments for affordable rent and built to level 3 of the Code for Sustainable Homes. A total of 24 one bedroom and 6 two bedroom apartments will be completed by winter 2017. Of these apartments three will be adapted properties for people with mobility issues.

As part of the development, apprenticeship opportunities will be available to local people and contributions of £68,000 will be spent on public open space as well as £30,000 on improving transport options for the area.
