Two planning applications for the £1 billion Glan Llyn regeneration scheme in south Wales have been submitted by St Modwen Properties to Newport City Council.
The first application is for 311 homes at the former Llanwern steelworks site to be built by the joint venture between St Modwen and housebuilder Persimmon.
The second application is for £5 million of infrastructure works by St Modwen to allow construction of the primary access road, the Gateway, to enable the first phase of homes to be built. A park, including play areas, open water features and ecological habitats will also be constructed.
The regeneration scheme will see the creation of 4,000 homes and 6,000 jobs, as well as schools, a library, police station, supermarket, doctor’s surgery, as well as amenity and sports spaces.
St Modwen chief executive Bill Oliversaid: “Glan Llyn is an exciting regeneration project for Newport and these planning applications mark important milestones for the entire re-development of the site. We would anticipate starting construction on the first phase of homes this summer.”
