Boost to social housing with Broad Haven purchases

Pembrokeshire County Council will add six new homes to the social housing supply and help provide suitable housing for those on the Choice Homes Register.

Plans to buy six, one bedroom new build flats at Sandbanks, Broad Haven, have been approved by Cabinet Member for Planning and Housing Delivery Cllr Jon Harvey.

The acquisition can be funded through the Housing Revenue Account and aligns with the approved Housing Revenue Account Business Plan.

Cllr Jon Harvey, Cabinet Member for Planning and Housing Delivery, said: “A key priority for this administration is to increase the amount of Council housing available and this acquisition will be a valuable addition.

“There is high demand for one bedroom properties across Pembrokeshire and Broad Haven is also an area impacted by the high number of second homes and holiday lets.

“These six flats in a desirable location, and the local lettings policy, will help alleviate homelessness pressures in the area and pressures on the housing waiting list.”

A community engagement event concerning the local lettings policy will be held at Broad Haven Village Hall on Thursday, 9th November, at 6pm.
