The Bron Afon Major Works Projects involving Leasehold Properties.

The 5-year capital plan was an area of interest during the last policy review, as it had been included in the previous policy, but the plan was never made visible. In the latest policy we committed to developing a plan for the next 2 years and making it available on tour website. We also committed to expanding this to a 5-year plan before the current policy was due for review. The table below now provides some general information about planned major works, which include leasehold properties. This will help leaseholders affected to prepare for these programmes of work being carried out on blocks that include their properties.

These plans are flexible and the Asset Team will review them regularly. It means things may move in the timeline, but it still gives you an earlier indication of any work planned at your block. The plan below shows what is currently in the programme for the next 2 financial years. If you have any questions about the proposed work shown in the table, please email

You will see under the table a date that will show when the programme was last reviewed/changed. This will help leaseholders make sure they know they have the latest information available.
