CCHA is moving forward with plans to build 12 new energy efficient homes in Llanrumney, which will see a mix of two, three and four bedroom homes being built to Welsh Government Design Quality Requirements (WDQR).
We are pleased to announce that LCB Group has been appointed to complete the project, providing high-quality, affordable and energy efficient homes to the area.
Andrea Hibbert, Head of Development at CCHA said:
“This development has been a long time coming, but with LCB Group now on board, and with support from Welsh Government Social Housing Grant, we are delighted to be building homes on a site that enjoys excellent local facilities and is surrounded by beautiful greenery and woodland.
“Braunton Crescent will also enjoy the benefit of solar panels on the roof planes of every property which will directly benefit our customers, as part of our commitment to tackling climate change and fuel poverty.”
Liam Bevan, Chief Executive at LCB Group said:
“It is a pleasure to work in partnership with Cardiff Community Housing Association to deliver 12 much needed new homes in the Llanrumney area of Cardiff. The timber frame dwellings are designed to achieve the EPCA rating specified by CCHA, as they include a series of energy efficient measures that will help keep the energy bills down for the new occupants. The use of timber frame and offsite construction methods will help us speed up the completion of these homes and help keep the disruption to neighbours and local businesses to a minimum.
“We are very grateful to all of our supply chain partners who helped us get to this point and who will be working in partnership with us to complete the work to a high standard and in line with the agreed programme.”
Each new property will have:
– Off road parking with EV charging points
– Secure Rear Gardens
– Sprinklers throughout
– Vinyl flooring and carpets
– External cycle storage
– External refuse storage
– Ground floor level access showers in addition to first floor bathrooms
– Timber frame construction
In keeping with sustainability commitments, the site will feature a wildflower meadow, a dry detention basin and rain gardens. It will also adhere to the Lifetime Homes Standard, a series of sixteen design criteria intended to make homes more easily adaptable for lifetime use at minimal cost, ensuring accessibility for tenants and making sure these homes stand the test of time.
Work is anticipated to complete in Summer 2024.
