What we're building now

We’re passionate about creating great places to live and work in Rhondda Cynon Taff.

Building new homes is no small task. Our project teams work hard to make sure we can offer homes, apartments and flats to tackle the lack of affordable homes in our communities.

What we’re building now

Elm Road, Llanharry

This project will see a 5-bedroom bungalow being built to be used as accommodation for adults with learning disabilities. The bungalow will also include a communal kitchen, 2 communal living areas and a ‘safe space’ as this scheme will be used for people with high level autism.

The scheme will be funded with an Integrated Care Fund grant by Welsh Government and part grant funded by the council and a management agreement put in place to lease the building for 20 years.

Pentre Hotel, Llewellyn Street, Pentre

Our partners, RCT County Borough Council, have identified that there is a need for one bedroom flats in Pentre. We are building eight new one bedroom flats for social rent on the former Pentre Hotel, Llewellyn Street site.

The flats will be built with the help of the Welsh Government’s Social Housing Grant as we are meeting the current social need in the area.
