We are delighted to have successfully received planning permission to build 120 homes in the beautiful village of Undy, Monmouthshire, in partnership with our development company Capsel Ltd.
This forms the second phase of the former Rockfield Farm site, part of the wider Rockfield Farm mixed-use development comprising residential and commercial land in Undy.
Monmouthshire County Council recently approved plans for 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedroomed mixed tenure homes including social rent and homes for sale. Additional affordable homes will be included within the development, to help tackle the affordable housing shortage in the County.
The site is adjacent to the Greystone Meadows site (phase 1), located off B4245, and constructed by Bellway Homes.
Chris Kinsey, our Director of Development said:
“We are absolutely delighted to have secured planning permission for what is Monmouthshire Housing and Capsel’s largest development to date. All homes will have enhanced energy efficiency with non-fossil fuel heating to help residents and buyers reduce their carbon footprint.
We will also have the opportunity to trial new modern methods of construction in pursuit of our aspirations to innovate for the betterment of future developments and maximise opportunities to use local labour and suppliers.”
John Keegan, our Chief Executive added:
“With high phosphate levels in the rivers Wye and Usk continuing to impact on MHA’s ability to increase the provision of affordable homes in the north of the County, and with several planned sites unable to be developed, it is particularly rewarding to receive planning permission for this attractive site in Undy”.
These new homes will be built to the new Building Regulations, so we will be using non fossil fuel forms of heating, including renewable energies where possible. They will be well insulated homes, ensuring they are energy efficient, as well as being of a high quality finish inside and out.
In the last 10 years MHA Group has built and acquired hundreds of homes in the County and this is yet another exciting phase in MHA’s growth.”
