Affordable homes to be available next year at Ely Paper Mill

Kevin Brennan MP recently visited the Ely Paper Mill site to see how the development of 800 houses was coming along and was pleased to learn the first houses will be occupied sometime next year.

The £100 million development is one of Wales' biggest redevelopment programmes with half of the houses being built set to be affordable homes.

"It's great to hear that some people will already be living in completed houses by the end of next year," said Mr Brennan.

"I have been calling for more affordable housing to be built in the West of the city for sometime and it's pleasing to see it coming to fruition.

"I've been told that most of the infrastructure will be in place by the end of 2016 with 102 houses being available to rent by the end of 2017.

"When completed there will be a total of 442 houses available for rent with 75 of these being for social housing and 325 available at a discounted rent price.

"I will continue to closely monitor the development and look forward to seeing some new afforable housing in Cardiff West."
