A Statement regarding the old Boot Hotel, Aberdare

UPDATE 9/11/18:

UPDATE ahead of Sunday's parade:

TEDS Developments LTD has now moved the hoarding outside the former Boot Hotel back as far as possible, whilst still ensuring it is safe for spectators and those taking part in the Remembrance Day parade and service on Sunday 11th November.

You may note that the hoarding still protrudes in one area, this is due to a hole in the foot way where a new electricity main has just been installed. It would not be safe to leave that area exposed.

We wish everyone the best of luck for the parade and service and will have staff in attendance on the day to pay our respects.

Initial statement:

We have received a number of comments regarding the hoarding around the building works currently taking place on the old Boot Hotel in Aberdare town centre.

Site safety and the hoarding is the responsibility of the contractor, TEDS Developments LTD. We have asked that they look into how to maximise space for the Remembrance Day Parade on Sunday 11th November 2018 whilst still ensuring the safety of the people who will be in the town that day. 

Due to the fact that this is a building site, there are still some dangers posed to members of the public. For this reason, the contractors will not be able to completely remove the hoarding, particularly with so many people expected to be in the town centre on this day.

We have asked that the contractors push back the hoarding at the front of the building ahead of the parade to create more space for the public, whilst still making sure that people’s safety is paramount.

We understand that this is a day that means a lot to many people and a number of our staff attend the parade annually. We want to reassure the public that we are totally respectful of the parade and all that it stands for.

New Director of Development and Regeneration for Trivallis

Trivallis has appointed Michelle Thomas to the role of Director of Development and Regeneration.

Michelle joins the organisation with over thirty years’ experience in social housing and brings with her extensive knowledge of the sector from her work in local government and other housing associations.

She joins Trivallis from her previous role as Director of her own development consultancy, Riverside, based in the South of England.  

Michelle said: “I’m absolutely delighted to have been announced as the new Director of Development and Regeneration at Trivallis.

“I’ve been tremendously impressed by the work that’s already being done across Rhondda Cynon Taff and I look forward to working with colleagues and partners across the organisation and beyond, to build on this great work and increase the number of much needed affordable new homes in our communities. It signals a new chapter in the story of Trivallis and I’m proud to be a part of it. ”

While at Riverside, Michelle worked with numerous housing associations including Stonewater and Greensquare. Before this, she was Head of Development at Merlin Housing, a similar large scale voluntary transfer (LSVT) to Trivallis, in terms of its customer size.  

As a specialist in new build development and regeneration, Michelle has worked on a number of high profile projects; most recently leading on a £35 million pound scheme to bring 145 affordable homes to a former factory site in Sussex and delivering a project to deliver 48 new homes on two Southampton City Council owned sites.

At Trivallis, Michelle will be responsible for identifying the requirements for building sustainable communities as well as working in partnership with the Local Authority, Welsh Government and other key stakeholders to maximise investment in Rhondda Cynon Taf.

Speaking on the appointment, Trivallis’ chief executive Ian Thomas added: “We are very pleased to be welcoming Michelle to Trivallis. Not only does her appointment fill a vital seat in our Executive Leadership Team but her experience and vision for how we can regenerate the area is really exciting.

“Bringing in someone of Michelle’s calibre is testament to the growing external reputation of Trivallis and gives us the level of expertise we need to help us achieve our ambitions.”

Trivallis is currently working towards developing a new vision and strategic priorities following the appointment of Michelle as well as new Board members including Jonathan Huish who is taking up the role of Chair. The new vision aims to put the customer right at the heart of everything Trivallis does and also look at ways in which Michelle’s role can help influence regeneration in the area.
