Building homes

There is a housing crisis in Wales and we are proud to be helping the Welsh Government by building 450 affordable new homes over the coming years.

We are always looking for new development and renovation opportunities and have already shown our expertise by working successfully in partnership with developers, land owners and agents to either build or renovate buildings to create homes.

If you think you have a site or building that may be of interest, please contact our development team on newbuildland@bronafon.org.uk.

Keep an eye on this page as we keep use it share news on what is happening on our sites. You can read about some of our recent success stories below.

Our completed projects

The Greyhound, Pontypool

The former Greyhound Pub Pontypool

We worked with R&M Williams to transform this historic former public house in Pontypool into 4 new flats and a commercial unit.

Kennard Court, Blaenavon

We worked in partnership with the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board and Torfaen Council using a grant from the Welsh Government to build six adapted bungalows for people with additional needs.

37 Clarence Street, Pontypool

In partnership with Torfaen Council and the Welsh Government’s Vibrant and Viable Places regeneration fund, we converted this building into two one-bedroom flats.

Commodore Hotel, Cwmbran

This private, commercial site was developed by Butler Wall Homes. As part of their commitment to deliver affordable homes we bought six properties from them. Four are rented by us as social rents and two as intermediate rents.

Elmhurst Close, Trevethin

Working with Holbrook Construction and a 58% grant fund from Welsh Government we built 2 houses and 2 flats. These new homes have improved the area, removing a fly tipping hot spot.

Bryn Pabi - Blenheim Road, Cwmbran

Working with Holbrook Construction and with 58% grant fund from Welsh Government we built three 2 bed and one 3 bed homes. We also worked to improve the area by landscaping the land in front of the new homes.

Old Market House, Pontypool

Market House Pontypool

We worked with R&M Williams to completely transform Pontypool’s oldest building into six new homes and a commercial space. The Grade II listed building dates back to 1730 and over the years has housed a number of outlets, including a stationers, clothes shop and a second-hand shop. It was officially opened on 14 June by Rebecca Evans AM, Minister for Housing and Regeneration.
