Leading UK regeneration specialist, St. Modwen, has submitted a planning application to build 79 new homes, under its residential brand, St. Modwen Homes, at its £1bn plus Coed Darcy development in Neath.

Subject to planning consent being granted, work is expected to start on site in early 2015 with a view to launching the first St. Modwen Homes properties onto the market in the summer 2015.

Ben Cook, Residential Land Director for St. Modwen Homes says:

“We are very excited at the prospect of bringing St. Modwen Homes to Coed Darcy, and with the 47 homes already underway at our development in Glan Llyn, Newport, we are working towards establishing the St. Modwen Homes brand in South Wales. We pride ourselves in providing house buyers with good quality homes that have a contemporary edge but that also offer something a little bit different from the norm. Our unique designs and signature features, including full height windows, and a variety of render finishes and colours, go that extra mile to deliver high quality homes with unique character and beauty.”

The 79 new St. Modwen Homes properties will comprise a range of one, two, three and four bedroom homes, at the Coed Darcy development. If approved, some of these new homes will have advantageous views overlooking the green public open space at the development along with the outstanding view up the Neath Valley.

Being developed over a 25 year period, Coed Darcy will be a place with a village feel, with essential community facilities, including four schools, retail facilities and acres of green open and recreational space. This new sustainable community will deliver more than 4,000 new homes for around 10,000 residents and around 500,000 sq ft of commercial accommodation with a job creation potential of 4,000 new roles.

Just two years old, St. Modwen Homes has already experienced substantial success in the industry and was named Best Small Housebuilder at last year’s national Housebuilder Awards, as well as winning awards for its house designs at its Locking Parklands development in Weston-super-Mare. The housebuilder currently has five active sites located across the UK.
