East Wales transfer quality new homes at Barry Waterfront to Hafod

28 February 2023

East Wales region have partnered with Hafod to provide new social housing for local people at a development in the Vale of Glamorgan.

The properties on the East Haven site on Barry Waterfront will be a mix of rent and shared ownership for the purposes of housing local people.

Representatives from East Wales region, Hafod and the Vale of Glamorgan visited the site last week to mark the latest handover of four properties.

As part of our partnership with Hafod, we will deliver nine affordable housing units at East Haven, consisting of seven for social rent and two for low cost home ownership.

Commenting on the handover of the latest properties, Lee Woodfine, Managing Director at East Wales, said:

“We’re delighted to be working with Hafod and the Vale of Glamorgan Council at East Haven in Barry.

“During our latest phase, we will be transferring nine homes to Hafod with a mix of rent and shared ownership for the purposes of housing local people.

“The regeneration of Barry Waterfront has been a substantial consortium project and will create an exciting new community for those who live here to enjoy.

“We are determined to leave a positive legacy in Barry through the provision of new homes and jobs, and we are very pleased to be partnering with Hafod and the Vale Council on the delivery of new social housing for local people.”

The Vale of Glamorgan Council’s Head of Housing and Building Services, Mike Ingram, who attended the handover on behalf of the local authority, said:

“We very much welcome the handover of these latest properties which is providing much needed homes for local people.

“It is important to us at the Vale of Glamorgan Council that every single person has access to good quality, affordable housing.

“Through our partnership with Persimmon Homes and Hafod we are increasing our social housing provision and giving local people the chance to live in this popular waterfront area of the town which is undergoing a transformation.”

Hafod’s Head of Development, Neil Taylor, said:

“We are pleased to deliver this latest phase of affordable homes at East Quay, Barry Waterfront in partnership with Persimmon Homes and the Vale of Glamorgan Council.

“Together we have developed over 80 much-needed homes as part of the wider Waterfront development which has helped to transform the area and is making a positive impact on local people’s lives.”

East Haven is part of Barry’s popular waterfront, and brings a selection of two, three, and four-bedroom homes to Barry's major new waterside regeneration project.

The Barry Waterfront is a consortium project which will deliver 2,000 new homes, retail units, offices, and new primary school.
