The provision of 12 new homes at the site of the former St Cuthbert’s Church at Clarence Embankment is set to boost availability of affordable homes in an area of high demand in Cardiff.

The tenants of these new homes will enjoy living in an ideal location in the city, close to excellent facilities such as the brand-new Grange Pavilion and Mermaid Quay.

In total, there will be eight one-bedroom apartments and four two-bedroom apartments for affordable rent.

As part of United Welsh’s plans to achieve net zero carbon by 2035, all the homes will use clean, renewable energy sources such as solar panels and ground source heat pumps.

The development has been partly funded by Welsh Government Social Housing Grant and is United Welsh’s latest development in the capital.
