Pembrokeshire County Council has awarded the pre-construction services agreement for a housing development in Milford Haven to WB Griffiths & Son Ltd.
The site is a former retail building in Charles Street that was demolished in 2018 with plans to build a mixture of 1 & 2 bed flats for local social housing residents.
The development will provide modern sustainable homes for future generations, designed to be highly energy efficient and built to have a positive impact on the environment.
Cllr Jon Harvey, Cabinet Member for Planning & Housing Delivery, welcomed the award of the contract to WB Griffiths & Son Ltd.
He said: “It is really pleasing that the pre-construction services agreement for the redevelopment of this important site within the town centre of Milford Haven has now been awarded.
“The site is one of a number identified in the Council’s house building programme and when complete the development will provide much needed additional affordable homes in the town.”
Over the next few months, this project will go through various design stages and costed options to ensure construction costs are viable and affordable.
Should construction costs be agreed, building work aims to starts in Autumn 2024, with construction expected to take about 12 months.
In the coming months, there will be a community engagement event, inviting the community and businesses to meet with the development team, view conceptual plans, ask questions and provide valuable feedback that we can consider in final designs.
