Update – Gaer Homes and Community Hub
It’s now been 27 weeks since WRW Construction Ltd started to build the first Derwen scheme at the Gaer. The development is now taking shape and the apartments and Community Hub can be clearly seen. A lot of work is taking place with the local community to ensure the Hub is going to be used to promote social inclusion for the new residents and the surrounding area. Health and wellbeing opportunities at the Hub will benefit residents to ensure that they can live their lives to the full. Everyone involved is working hard to make the Gaer a great place to live.
Currently, the project is due for completion in Autumn 2017. To apply for one of these homes you must make your application with Home Options Newport and register your interest when they become available.
The project layout and designs reflect Derwen’s aspirations for a flagship older people’s development while also meeting a clearly identified need within Newport. The design accommodates two communal blocks of self-contained apartments with a central communal hub and four walk-up apartments, providing a total of 39 new homes. Of these new homes, 33 will be two bedroom apartments and 6 will be one bedroom.
