Work to start on new Pembrokeshire council houses

Work is due to restart in January 2022 on the first council houses to be built in Pembrokeshire for a generation.

Following the previous contractor going into administration in July 2021, the Council is pleased to confirm the contract has now been awarded to W.B.Griffiths – and the development is due for completion in September 2022.

In total, 33 affordable homes will be constructed by Pembrokeshire County Council on the site of a former primary school at Cranham Park, in Johnston. This will provide much needed affordable accommodation and will be the first of a number of developments in our housing development programme.

The Council is pleased to be building homes in the county for the first time in more than 25 years.

Cllr Michelle Bateman, Cabinet member for Housing said: ‘I would like to thank the local community for their understanding and patience following the uncertainty over the past six months while the site was closed. I am pleased that these new homes will be built and delivered in the autumn. The house-building scheme fulfils a pledge made by the authority’s cabinet when it took over the administration of the council in 2017. I am proud and delighted to say that we are now honouring that pledge.’

In Spring 2022, the Council will be engaging with the community to gather residents views in order to develop a Local Lettings Policy and this will be used to allocate the first lettings at Cranham Park.
