Leading UK regeneration specialist, St. Modwen, has been granted planning consent to build an additional 104 homes, under its residential brand, St. Modwen Homes, at its £1bn Glan Llyn development in Newport.

Work is expected to start on site in August 2015 with a view to launching the next set of St. Modwen Homes properties onto the market in the Autumn.

The 104 new St. Modwen Homes properties will comprise a range of two, three and four bedroom homes, at the 600 acre flagship scheme, with a number of properties overlooking the pools and mature green landscape at the development.

Rupert Joseland, South Wales regional director for St. Modwen, said: “Our house-building brand, St. Modwen Homes, is making good in-roads in the Welsh market with 32 of the 47 homes being built at Glan Llyn already sold. With a further 104 in the pipeline, we look forward to welcoming many more residents to the community over the coming months.”

Glan Llyn is being developed by St. Modwen using a phased approach delivering 4,000 new homes and 6,000 new jobs over the next 20 years.  The 600 acre site will provide a range of facilities including a new local centre offering leisure and retail space supported by new education facilities all surrounded by 80 acres of extensive open parkland.

Situated in a strategic location at the main gateway into South Wales, the former Llanwern Steelworks site will feature its own 100 acre business area, Celtic Business Park, making it a major provider of new office, industrial and warehouse space. St. Modwen has also made a multi-million pound commitment to develop and improve infrastructure, with new access roads planned to and from the site.
