As part of the housebuilder’s commitment to the local community, the five-star home builder has secured full planning permission with 11 of the properties designated as affordable housing for local people. The site will also include SUDS attenuation ponds and drainage features, and active travel routes.
As part of the development, a play area – which will include balance beams and climbing boulders, suitable for infants and primary-age children – will be built and bat, swift, and sparrow boxes will be installed. A £984,538 financial contribution is also being made to fund local infrastructure.
The housebuilders donate £48,000 to good causes across Wales every year as part of its Community Champions scheme, with Wales Air Ambulance and Carmarthen Family Centres included amongst recent local recipients.
Stuart Phillips, Persimmon Homes West Wales’ Managing Director said:
“We’re delighted that our application to bring new much-needed homes to Carmarthen has been successful and would like to thank the County Council for engaging with us so constructively.
“Persimmon already has a strong track record of delivering high quality homes for local people in the town and we look forward to expanding our positive and lasting legacy in Carmarthen with this new site.
“We’re excited to be building nearly 100 houses next to existing amenities like the University of Wales Trinity St David, but also near sites allocated for schools and employment.
“Alongside designated affordable homes and the ecological features we will be implementing, Persimmon is confident that by providing more homes in Carmarthen, the benefits of this development will be clear and long-lasting for the local community.”
Persimmon is currently building at its Parc Cerrig site, a dozen miles away in Cross Hands, where three and four-bed homes are still available from £249,995 at the 200-home development.”
