The large-scale transformation programme is bringing a new lease of life to the Ringland area of Newport and has been developed in close consultation with the local community. It will involve delivery of 158 new homes and the relocation of the Ringland shopping centre, ensuring that residents can continue to take pride in their community.
The £34 million project is set to be delivered over four phases and provide apprenticeship and work experience opportunities for local people.
Lovell won the building contract due to its ability to deliver high-quality homes whilst adhering to robust health and safety standards.
James Duffett, regional managing director at Lovell, said: “We are very proud to have been awarded the next phase of the “Ringland Regeneration” project, following our positive work on the Cot Farm development. This scheme will transform the Ringland area into a sustainable and vibrant place where people can live and work, which they can feel proud to call home.
“At Lovell, we take a lot of pride in providing much-needed new housing and offering local people job opportunities in the construction industry. We take our signing of the Placemaking Wales Charter very seriously, and are committed to creating communities that promote happiness, health and wellbeing.
“We are looking forward to once again working with Newport City Homes to deliver this exciting redevelopment programme, and to be continuing our successful partnership.”
Rachel George, Head of Regeneration at Newport City Homes, said: “We have worked with residents and the local community over a number of years to deliver the newly built homes at Cot Farm and also to develop the wider plans for the Ringland shopping area.
“It’s been key for us to make sure we meet community needs, to build a new attractive and safe shopping area and a range of homes that meet local needs, all situated in a well-designed and desirable neighbourhood with enhanced accessible links throughout. We are delighted to be working with Lovell again on this exiting scheme.”
