The work, which forms part of Carmarthenshire County Council’s exciting plans to transform the area, will enable the build of much needed homes as well as upgrading existing ones, creating community facilities and green space.

Cllr Linda Davies Evans, chair of the Transforming Tyisha steering group and cabinet member for housing says regenerating the Tyisha ward and the wider Llanelli town centre area which is undergoing massive investment is vital to serve the needs of the community.

“Work is going at a steady pace and seems to be well received by local who are engaging with our contractors. We have 24hr security in place and noise monitoring is carried out periodically. Once these buildings are completely down we can then start looking at redeveloping the site and breathing new life into this area,” she said.

In November last year the council invited expressions of interest from potential partners to work with them to develop new housing a create a vibrant community. These applications are now being considered.

The demolition of the ‘Four Tys’ forms part of the council’s Transforming Tyisha project which looks to regenerate the area through increasing community safety, developing housing and community facilities and improving the environment.
