They have been built as part of the council’s drive to create 1,000 new council homes from 2021-31. The plan includes investment of £56.2m over the four years to 2024-25.

Andrea Lewis, the council’s joint deputy leader, said: “The properties at Hillview are some of Wales’ most energy-efficient new homes and will be wonderful for tenants.

“The council team behind the new homes has done a tremendous job, building something very special.

“Good quality, affordable Swansea homes for rent are in great demand for single people and for families. We’ll continue to build new homes help meet this need.

“Better homes for our residents is one of the critical building blocks of creating a better future for children, for families and for our city.

“Right through the pandemic we’ve continued with our house-building programme because our new homes will improve people’s health, reduce poverty and contribute to happier communities.

“Under our More Homes initiative, the new homes we’re building are the first we’ve built in a generation. They’re breaking new ground in levels of energy efficiency so our tenants will be able to keep fuel bills down.

“Our commitment to better homes will also continue to create new construction skills and hundreds of jobs for our communities. Better homes is about building a better Swansea.”

Funding for new homes and upgrades for existing homes is coming from the rents paid by tenants, Welsh Government grants and Housing Revenue Account borrowing. None of the spending is from the council tax.

Recent work has included the creation of 18 homes in Colliers Way, Penlan, and eight flats in the former Bryn House, Uplands. The programme also includes new homes in West Cross, Gorseinon and Ravenhill. Other opportunities are planned and being sought.
