My Bron Afon

We have built 100 homes!

We have built our one hundredth home in Torfaen. We aim to build 450 homes by 2023.

The landmark home has been completed by Lovell on their site at Oakfield Grange in Cwmbran. The developer built 78 homes and 23 of them were allocated to Bron Afon for affordable rent.

Alan Brunt, our chief executive, said: “We are building 450 homes so reaching 100 is a proud moment for us and our partners who have made this possible. Inside every one is a family who now have somewhere to call home. There is a huge demand for genuinely affordable housing in Torfaen so making it easier for more people to find somewhere to live is such an important job for us as the Borough’s largest social landlord.”

Cllr David Daniels, Torfaen’s executive member for housing, said: “I’m delighted that Bron Afon have reached their milestone 100th home.  The accessibility of affordable, quality housing remains a priority, and with around 2,500 households on the waiting list, the challenge is not small. The hard work and ambition of Bron Afon and other partners is going to be essential in meeting this challenge head on and I’d like to pay tribute to all involved in reaching this milestone.”

Gemma Clissett, regional partnerships director at Lovell, said: “Oakfield Grange has transformed the former site of Oakfield Primary School with 23 brand-new affordable rented homes for Bron Afon. We’re thrilled to be able to offer high-quality homes to Cwmbran residents and to work towards creating a thriving community.”
