on

Work has started at Tudor Place in Tiers Cross to create 11 new Council homes for Pembrokeshire Council, replacing 10 existing 1950s prefab houses.

The Tudor Place development is the second Pembrokeshire County Council housing site in the Authority’s housing development programme

Work at the site is due for completion in July 2023.

The existing homes at Tudor Place were built in the 1940s and 50s, and had an original lifespan of around 50 to 60 years. The redevelopment of the site came after a council report highlighted a series of repairs and maintenance issues.

The council say the redevelopment will provide modern sustainable homes for future generations, designed to the highest standards to be highly energy efficient and built to have a positive impact on the environment.

To celebrate work starting at the site, a Meet and Greet event was held on Friday 19 August, between the contractor, staff, Cabinet Member for Planning & Housing Delivery, local Community Council, local County Councillor and the returning tenants.

Pembrokeshire County Council Cabinet Member for Planning & Housing Delivery, Cllr Jon Harvey, said: “It is so good to see this development moving forward and it was wonderful to meet some of the tenants who will be returning to homes at Tudor Place.

“The development will provide good quality desirable homes which residents can take pride in and aid health and well-being.

“The development of new social and affordable homes is a key priority nationally for Welsh Government and locally for us in Pembrokeshire and this development is one of a number of new housing schemes that the Council will be delivering.”

Returning tenants Zoe and Chris McLuckie said: “We are delighted that work has started. We have an amazing future ahead of us here and are looking forward to returning to our family home in Tiers Cross.”

Claire George, Chairman of Tiers Cross Community Council, added: “It’s great to see Tycroes Group Ltd commence work on the development at Tudor Place.

“As a Community, we look forward to welcoming residents back to the village in the near future.”
