The contract for construction of seven new bungalows in St Davids has been signed over to a private developer, GRD Limited, to develop on behalf of the Council.

The first phase of a two-phase project at Glasfryn, St Davids, will see three one-bedroom and four two-bedroom homes built.

The bungalows will be energy efficient properties and built to EPC A specification including solar panels to assist tenants with running costs.

The second phase of the development will see a further 11 bungalows built for Pembrokeshire County Council.

Cabinet Member for Planning and Housing Delivery Cllr Jon Harvey said: “We are delighted to see work underway on this housing development in St Davids where demand for new homes of this type is high.

“This scheme is the latest in this administration’s plans to increase the amount of Council housing available, a key priority for the Authority.”

The Local Member for St Davids, Cllr Bethan Price, added: “The new development of affordable housing at the Glasfryn site is of massive importance to St Davids and surrounding area.

“The lack of affordable housing on this peninsular, and in Pembrokeshire, is high and I am so delighted to see the start of phase one as it will give hope to people who are in desperate need of affordable housing.”
