Pembrokeshire Council have submitted a planning application to redevelop the site of the former Haverfordia House office building in Haverfordwest.
The proposed development at Winch Lane, a partnership between Pembrokeshire County Council’s Housing and Social Services Departments, is a hybrid of both permanent over 55’s flats and short-term re-ablement accommodation for those recovering from hospital treatment.
This facility is expected to comprise a mix of 12 en-suite re-ablement units and 25 over 55’s sheltered housing apartments.
The development includes communal gardens, electric scooter storage, treatment room and shared living spaces.
It is expected that contractors will be onsite by autumn 2022 with completion expected by the end of 2023, subject to the necessary planning permissions being granted.
Cllr Michelle Bateman, Pembrokeshire Council’s Member for Housing said: “This remains a hugely positive phase of development for the Council and the Haverfordia project is particularly exciting as it is a fantastic collaboration between the Housing and Social Services Departments of PCC.
“Pembrokeshire fully deserves to have a resource such as this and so many people will benefit – not just those seeking a new home but those who are recovering from a medical procedure and not quite able to return immediately to their own homes along with preventing unnecessary admissions to hospital.
“We would encourage members of the local community to engage with the planning process and are keen to consider the views of anyone who might have an interest in the development or might be affected by the construction phase.”
