Pillgwennlly, Newport

United Living has joined with social housing landlord, Newport City Homes once more, to deliver a £7.9m regeneration programme in the Pillgwenlly area of Newport.

The project involves a combination of demolition of void properties, balconies and a community centre. The new build of houses, apartments and a new community centre, conversions and external improvements to approximately 250 homes plus landscape improvements to the whole estate.

Newport City Homes (NCH) are a not for profit social housing landlord, established in 2009, after Newport City Council transferred its housing stock to the new organisation. NCH provides services to over 10,000 residents, leaseholders and shared owners in the city of Newport.

The area of Pill (Pillgwenlly) was historically economically strong, however, the decline in industry has led to derelict buildings and high unemployment levels. Newport City Homes have spent the last 7 years working with the community to produce the Pillgwenlly Neighbourhood Action Plan – part of this is the work we are undertaking.
