We are very pleased to hear that the planning application for our Coychurch Road housing scheme was approved at this month’s committee meeting. Designed for Hafod Housing Association, the scheme provides 48 new dwellings, including both apartments and houses, on a brown field site near the centre of Bridgend.
The recently completed Dyfrig House, for the Seren Group, was officially opened by Vaughan Gething (Deputy Minister for Health) and The Lord Mayor of Cardiff, Councillor David Walker on 19th November. The newly refurbished and extended facility for the homeless in Cardiff provides 21 beds of accommodation, staff areas and flexible communal spaces. It replaces outdated facilities and seeks to create a more legible, high quality environment, fit for 21st century living, and one that residents and staff can be proud of.
A resident at Dyfrig House commented;
“When you come in this building it lifts you, it makes you feel like you want to become better than what people have said you are. It’s made a difference to my life and I know it’s made a difference to every other person in this place; that’s 21 lives. You’re enabling me to get my life back when no one else would do that for me. It’s a very, very special place indeed.”

Plas Bryn Rhosyn, the second of four new-build care homes for Grwp Gwalia in Neath, opened to residents in November 2015. The home, designed to the progressive standards prescribed by the University of Stirling’s Dementia Services Development Centre, provides a high quality care environment for 60 residents. The building comprises clusters of up to 12 en-suite bedrooms arranged around individual courtyard gardens, and terraces to upper floor clusters, which allow all residents easy access to external spaces. The clusters also incorporate wandering loops and memory walls, where residents can sit amongst memory-jogging artefacts / objects.
