New affordable homes are ready to be enjoyed thanks to the completion of a United Welsh housing development close to Caerphilly town centre.

Working in partnership with Caerphilly Council and contractor M&J Cosgrove Construction Ltd, United Welsh developed land at Heol Bro Wen, located off Pontygwindy Road, to build new homes for people in need of affordable housing in the Caerphilly borough.

The 11 new homes at the Caerphilly Glade development include 8 one-bedroom apartments and 3 two-bedroom houses, providing options for people to downsize; move to a larger family home or start their first tenancy in a home of their own.

Local member for the Morgan Jones Ward, Cllr James Pritchard, paid a visit to the new build homes at Caerphilly Glade to see the finished result.

Cllr Pritchard said:

“I’ve supported this development of high-quality affordable housing since the plans were first shared with local councillors. Having visited the site, I was impressed by the new builds, which offer spacious rooms and a comfortable living environment.

“More affordable housing needs to be built in Caerphilly. Not everybody can afford market-priced housing. I would like to thank United Welsh for working closely with me throughout the construction phase.”

Lynn Morgan, Director of Development for United Welsh said:

“We are delighted to bring these new affordable homes to the heart of Caerphilly. Located a short distance from the town centre, the homes benefit from excellent transport links and a variety of local amenities.

“We hope the people moving in will enjoy everything the community has to offer, as well as their new homes.”

The Caerphilly Glade development has contributed towards United Welsh’s plans to build at least 1,300 homes in the next five years.

Cllr Lisa Phipps, Cabinet Member for Housing and Property at Caerphilly Council, said:

“We’re delighted to work in partnership with United Welsh to deliver high quality homes that help meet the demand for affordable housing in the county borough, such as the Caerphilly Glade development.  As well as providing much needed homes, this partnership is also helping to deliver much wider benefits for local people; including jobs and training opportunities.”
