Council looks for partner to help transform Tyisha

Published

on

Carmarthenshire County Council is continuing with work to transform the Tyisha area of Llanelli with an ‘early market engagement’ process going to it’s Executive Board for approval in September to look for partners to carry out improvements in the area.

Potential partners will work with the council to help it build a modern, mixed-use housing development in the Maes Y Gors area commonly known as ‘the four Ty’s’ which are set to be demolished later this year to make way for the new housing.

This area is of strategic importance as it links Llanelli town centre with the Pentre Awel development.

The plans must include modern, mixed-use housing which meets the needs of the community and the council are now asking potential contractors to share their vision of Tyisha before the official tender process begins.

The council says that not participating in the early market engagement process will not impact any contractor or business applying during the official tender process.

Cllr Linda Evans, chair of the Tyisha steering group and executive board member for housing, said: “Residents in Tyisha have told us that they want better housing provision, more job opportunities, a cleaner environment and a safer place to live. We are striving to deliver these goals and the development of housing to replace the four Ty’s is a major step towards transforming Tyisha.

“We are seeking a contractor who shares our ambition to provide the area with mixed-use housing that is modern, comfortable and meets the needs of the community as well as landscaping the area.
