Hafod Housing in partnership with RCTCBC through the Social Housing Grant have recently finished works on two housing schemes in Rhydyfelin and Taffs Well.
The Clos Heddfan scheme located in Rhydyfelin has received a total investment of £6.7m to build 35 homes on the site. Hafod Housing received a £4m contribution for the scheme through the Social Housing Grant and funded the remainder themselves. The scheme is located on the old site of an RCTCBC office building which has been demolished in order to provide these affordable homes in the area. The development consists of-
- 9 x 3-bed houses
- 8 x 2-bed houses
- 6 x 2-bed flat
- 10 x 1-bed flats
- 2 x 2-bed accessible bungalows
Many of these homes also benefit from off-road parking and large gardens. The homes are a mixture of stone and brickwork finishes and have been constructed by ASD Ltd.
The second Hafod Housing scheme, Llys Ty Garth is located in Taffs Well, 20 homes have been built by M J Cosgrove for the £3.4m scheme. £2.1m of funding was received through the Social Housing Grant while the rest was privately funded by Hafod. The 20 homes on the site consist of -
- 3 x 2-bed houses
- 2 x 2-bed bungalows
- 4 x 2-bed flats
- 9 x 1-bed flats
- 2 x 1-bed accessible flats
Cllr Bob Harris and Council officers were invited by Hafod Housing to visit both schemes to see the success of the developments and meet some of the residents who have moved into the homes.
Cllr Bob Harris, Cabinet Member for Public Health and Communities, said:

The transformation of this site, which was previously offices, into a cul-de-sac of 20 new homes including houses, flats and two adapted bungalows is very satisfying.
