Vale of Glamorgan Council in the UK has approved a plan for a £230m regeneration of Barry Waterfront, which includes the reclamation of 43ha of brownfield land for a new community of up to 2,000 homes.
The plan includes 1,820m² of cafes, restaurants and bars, 3,450m² of offices, a hotel of up to 3,500m², a new school, as well as community facilities and open space.
The project includes a mix of private and affordable housing, cafes, restaurants, children’s play areas and public spaces.
The project will also see a new £5m road link from the town centre to Barry Island, a school, a supermarket and up to 2,000 homes.
The new regeneration project follows earlier redevelopment at the site including a health centre, pharmacy, new road links, 686 new homes, a supermarket and other retail space.
The five-phase project will be carried out by a building consortium including Taylor Wimpey UK, Persimmon Homes and BDW Trading subsidiary Barratt South Wales.
