Go-ahead for regeneration of ex-steel site

May 25 2007

by Aled Blake, Western Mail

A MASSIVE regeneration scheme for one of Wales? biggest brownfield sites has been
given the go-ahead.

The £1bn transformation of 600 acres of disused land at Llanwern has been backed by
Newport councillors.

More than 6,000 jobs will be created as construction work begins.

It will see housing, offices and public open spaces created on an area which was
once part of the vast Llanwern steelworks.

The development will be led by Birmingham-based regeneration specialist St Modwen.

The company specialises in regenerating brownfield land and it says the work will
take 20 years to complete.

It is also leading the development of Coed Darcy at Llandarcy, just off the M4 near
Neath, which will see the 1,000-acre former oil refinery site transformed into an
urban village.

The Llanwern development will include 4,000 new homes, with 20% of the total being
affordable housing.

There will also be about 1.5 million square feet of office, factory and warehouse

St Modwen says initial infrastructure work will begin later this year, with the
first housing and office and industrial units being developed next year.
