River Tawe corridor regeneration in full flow

05 October 2016


A housing development which has been described as the first step towards radically changing the appearance of the River Tawe corridor is taking shape.

Swansea Council planners hope Persimmon Homes West Wales’ Glan yr Afon scheme on the former Bernard Hastie site off Morfa Road will be the catalyst for further development in the area.

The 93-property site launched in January and is quickly taking shape with nine properties now fully complete and occupied, and a further 12 nearing completion and already reserved.

Glan yr Afon is in a fabulous, quiet location with stunning views of the river.

Sharon Robinson, sales director at Persimmon Homes West Wales, said: “Glan yr Afon is really taking shape and the once-derelict area is looking much, much better.”

Swansea is growing and improving all the time and we’re proud of be leading the way.”

“This development is a like a little oasis in the middle of the city. It’s in an attractive, private location yet it’s within walking distance of the centre, the train station is and the Liberty Stadium is right next door and SA1 is also close by.”

“We’re delighted with how building work is progressing as we work towards full completion, which is likely to be in 18 to 24 months’ time.”

Glan yr Afon has a mix of apartments and two, three and four bedroom homes.

A two-bed property with a garden and parking is priced at £129,995.

There is a three-bed Greyfriars style showhome on site for visitors to view.

Persimmon’s popular Home Change scheme is available at the development. The builder can help people make the move by using its contacts to sell an existing property at an agreed price.

Persimmon Homes West Wales, headquartered at Penllergaer Business Park, is the region’s leading housebuilder.

Recently the company announced that the number of visitors to its developments had increased by 20 per cent year on year.
