Carmarthenshire County Council has appointed a contractor to demolish housing blocks in Tyisha commonly known as ‘the Four Tys’.

The demolition work, which is set to begin at the end of November, will enable the build of a modern, mixed-use housing development, which the council say will better meet the needs of the community, as well as improvements to existing homes and the creation of community facilities and green spaces.

Cllr Linda Davies Evans, chair of the Transforming Tyisha steering group and cabinet member for housing said: “I am delighted that we have reached this important milestone in the Transforming Tyisha project. The demolition of the ‘Four Tys’ will evoke powerful memories for many people who have lived and worked in Tyisha, but will mean that we can develop the housing and facilities that the community wants, needs and deserves.

“Local residents and businesses who may be impacted by the demolition process will be contacted before any work begins and throughout the process to ensure minimum disruption.”

This forms a part of the council’s plans to regenerate the Tyisha ward and the wider Llanelli town centre area.

The council is also seeking a partner to develop new housing and create a vibrant community. An early market engagement exercise is currently live which gives potential partners the opportunity to express their interest in working with the council to transform the area.

‘Fresh and innovative ideas’ for the project can be submitted to the council until December 7.
