Work begins on Tudor Place housing development

Families that will return to Tudor Place were among those at the ground breaking event.

Work has started at Tudor Place, Tiers Cross to create 11 quality, sustainable and affordable Council homes.

The Tudor Place development is the second Pembrokeshire County Council housing site in the Authority’s ambitious housing development programme

Work at the site is due for completion in July 2023.

The 11 homes will be constructed to replace ten pre-fabricated houses.

The development will provide modern sustainable homes for future generations, designed to the highest standards to be highly energy efficient and built to have a positive impact on the environment.

To celebrate work starting at the site, a Meet and Greet event was held on Friday 19th August, between the contractor, staff, Cabinet Member for Planning & Housing Delivery, local Community Council, local County Councillor and the returning tenants.

Pembrokeshire County Council Cabinet Member for Planning & Housing Delivery, Cllr Jon Harvey, said: “It is so good to see this development moving forward and it was wonderful to meet some of the tenants who will be returning to homes at Tudor Place.

“The development will provide good quality desirable homes which residents can take pride in and aid health and well-being.

“The development of new social and affordable homes is a key priority nationally for Welsh Government and locally for us in Pembrokeshire and this development is one of a number of new housing schemes that the Council will be delivering.”

Returning tenants Zoe and Chris McLuckie said: “We are delighted that work has started. We have an amazing future ahead of us here and are looking forward to returning to our family home in Tiers Cross.”

Claire George, Chairman of Tiers Cross Community Council, added: “It’s great to see TyCroes Group Ltd commence work on the development at Tudor Place.

“As a Community, we look forward to welcoming residents back to the village in the near future.”
