Tenants celebrate with a street party to launch new development

Tenants at Heol Loveluck in Bridgend organised a street party recently to help to get to know one another and to celebrate the completion of the new development which has provided 48 much-needed affordable homes in the area.

Activities included a bouncy castle, body art, gladiator duel and sumo wrestler inflatables, street football and a range of lovely food including ice cream and a barbeque.

Developed in partnership with Bridgend County Borough Council and contractors Lovell, the scheme has provided 24 one and two-bedroom apartments, 23 two, three and four-bedroom homes and one specially adapted bungalow to rent.

Our Neighbourhood Coach, Danielle Gouge, works closely with the residents. She said: “The community spirit in putting this event together has been brilliant and it’s given everyone an opportunity to get to know their neighbours more closely. I’m looking forward to continue working with our tenants and seeing the street flourish.”

We currently own and manage over 1,200 homes in the county borough. Cadwgan Thomas, Head of Development said: “It’s very pleasing to see how the transformation of this previously unused site has provided high quality homes for local people and how much they are enjoying being part of their community.

“Hafod is also proud to have supported the local area through a number of community benefits and employment opportunities during the build.”
