Our work will involve demolishing 23 existing flats on Oak Road and replacing them with newly built homes.

A key part of our work is to build new, purpose-built homes for residents aged 55 and over on the empty land at St Johns Court before any demolition at Oak Road takes place. This means that we will have new homes ready for Oak Road residents to move into, in the same location.

We have submitted a planning application to Newport City Council, please see link for the information provided for this planning application. Read the application reference 22/0919

What have we been doing?

At the moment, our focus is on developing the designs for the regeneration, and working with the community to understand your views and take these into account in our work.

We carried out our first community event at St. Johns Church Hall on Friday 25 February.

At this event, we shared our initial designs with the community.

If you missed it, don’t worry. You can download the designs.

These designs show our proposal for St Johns, Oak Road and St Johns Church Hall. The designs include:

  • Site context and overview
  • Opportunities and constraints of these sites
  • Design Evolution, Scenario 3 is the option that we have opted for
  • Proposed site layout for St Johns Northern Parcel and St Johns Southern Parcel
  • Proposed visuals for the Northern and Southern Parcels
  • Proposed Church Hall Conversion
  • Proposed Sustainability Principles
  • Prospective Programme


What do you think?

We asked residents to share their views with us on the day. If you’d like to give us any feedback on these proposals, you can still do this by completing our online form.
