Multi-million pound Ringland regeneration plans submitted
Newport City Homes has submitted a planning application for the start of its ambitious multi-million pound regeneration plans for Ringland.
The first phase of the regeneration project has seen Newport City Homes submit a detailed planning application for the redevelopment of the Cot Farm site. This initial phase will provide a total of 56 new homes as follows:
·      11 one-bedroom apartments
·      19 two-bedroom apartments
·      18 two-bedroom houses
·      8 three-bedroom houses
The executive director of operations at Newport City Homes, Robert Lynbeck, said: “The housing mix has been developed in response to a review of local housing need and demand. We have held extensive consultation with the local community during the Cot Farm design process and, where feasible, we incorporated these comments within the scheme proposals.
“Employability is to play a key role in our regeneration approach, with all building contractors being required to provide employment and training opportunities for local people.”
In addition to this, Newport City Homes has appointed Powell Dobson Architects to create the wider masterplan for Ringland. One of the key fundamental changes will be the demolition of the existing shopping centre and its relocation to a more prominent and easily accessible location within the regeneration area.
Board chair Nicola Somerville said: “We want to provide more affordable homes, design out areas that allow anti-social behaviour to thrive and improve access to community facilities. We want to convert the current shopping centre into a modern, accessible space, and improve its appearance.
“We want to ensure this is a community in which people want to live.
“To ensure we meet the needs of the community, we are continuing to work with a steering group of local residents and retailers. This is helping us to deliver not only what the community wants, but what it needs.
“We are confident that this project will completely revitalise the area. Our substantial financial commitment is testament to this and gives you just a sense of our future ambitions.”
The development of Cot Farm marks the beginning of the wider regeneration of the Ringland area, with construction works due to start in spring 2018. The wider Ringland masterplan is due to be submitted in March 2018.
