Following discussions during Executive Board around the future potential uses for the Rhosddu Road site in which Centre 67 was formerly. The discussions were seeking agreement to commission of a feasibility study to demonstrate the potential uses for the Rhosddu.
The site is on the same land as Springfield Sheltered Housing which makes up 41 properties on the land. The location is close to the City Centre which has sustainable transport links back and to.
Senior Management responsible for the service are currently working closely with the Assets team to consider options for the development of a purpose built facility which will meet the needs of service users both now and in the future.
We’ve allocated £9 million from the Housing Revenue Account budget to support this development for much needed social housing to meet the growing demand for new homes and hoping that the feasibility study will be conducted by the end of Summer. The feasibility study will look into all aspects of the land, and what can be achieved within it, whether that be housing stock alone or a mixed use.
Councillor David A Bithell Deputy Leader of the Council and Lead Member for Housing said “We’re working hard to secure new homes and I’m very pleased to support the potential for new development on the site. We will now be undertaking a detailed review of the site with our aspirations to put Council housing on the site.
