Planning committee approval for 39 new low-carbon affordable homes

Pobl Group’s development on the site of the former Ladyhill Day Centre was unanimously approved by Newport’s planning committee on 6th January 2021.

The scheme will provide much needed affordable housing for the area, with the creation of 39 new low-carbon homes.

The 1-hectare site is made up of two parcels of land – the former Ladyhill Day Centre to the west and the former Seven Stiles pub to the east – which have been owned by the Group since 2012 & 2010 respectively.

Over the years a number of schemes have been considered and a residential development of 39-homes was worked up for a planning application towards the middle of 2020. This coincided with the Welsh Government’s launch of Round 4 of the Innovative Housing programme and this site was successful in its bid for funding.

“We look forward to delivering these 2 and 3-bedroom homes, which will be procured using Design for Manufacture principles and will be principally timber frame.” “This scheme is an example of Pobl’s commitment to building truly sustainable homes and great places where people want to live. All being well we look forward to a start on site in 2021 with a project completion in 2022” Gavin Howells (Senior Project Manager at Pobl Group)
