Local community park receives support thanks to Llandrinod Wells housing development.
Newydd Housing Association, alongside their contractor J.G Hale Construction, have made a monetary contribution towards a regenerative project of a local community park after being approached by the group for support.
Shannon Maidment, Community Regeneration Coordinator at Newydd said, “We encourage local community groups to get in touch with us when we’re developing in an area to offer our support through our Community Benefits programme. We consider wider social and economic issues to make a positive impact in our new and existing communities.”
Work on the £8.3 million development on Ithon Road began in November 2019 after planning permission was permitted in March of the same year. Newydd employed J.G. Hale Construction to build a mixture of two- and three-bedroom houses, bungalows, and one-bedroom flats for rent as well as properties for sale through the Welsh Government Rent to Own Wales scheme.
Jenna Smith, member of the Park Regeneration Group, said: “We’re thrilled that Newydd Housing and Hale Construction could see how important our park is to us and how much benefit some improvements to it are going to bring to the community. These contributions are making such a difference.
The group are delighted to accept this fantastic contribution to the works, our wildflower garden as well as competition prizes to ensure we can continue fundraising to reach our full target in the near future. “
Nia Collard, Business Development Officer at J.G Hale Construction said: “We’re delighted to make a contribution towards supporting the regeneration of Llanyre Park, collaboratively with Newydd Housing. It’s important for children and families from the local community, and future generations to come, to have a safe, enjoyable space to play and have fun.”
