Update – Gaer Homes and Community Hub
We are excited to announce that WRW Construction Ltd, the developer at the new Gaer site, will start their initial works from 7th March. Their immediate activity will be to set up the site accommodation and undertake some additional site survey work.
We are keen to hold an event at the Gaer Baptist Church to enable residents to meet members of the WRW team, including the site manager who will be responsible for overseeing the day to day running of the site. This will also provide an ideal opportunity to look at the final plans and find out more about the timescales for the works. We will publicise the details shortly.
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.
