Four win £82m Welsh housing deal

Four contractors have secured their place on an £82m housing refurbishment deal for the Vale of Glamorgan council.

The deal will see all council homes in the Vale bought up to the Welsh Housing Quality Standard over four and a half years.

September 3rd marks the start of works which will include the renewal of kitchens, bathrooms, rewiring, heating systems, windows, doors and roofs.

The four winning contractors have been named as Lovell Partnerships, Ian Williams, Apollo Property Services and SMK Building and Maintenance.

Neil Moore, Leader of the Council, said: “Council tenants have been waiting for a number of years for the commencement of this programme.

“We have appointed experienced contractors to deliver this programme and I am confident that tenants will be pleased with the work that is carried out.

“Not only will all council properties be upgraded, but there will be wider benefits delivered by increasing local jobs and apprenticeships in the area and spending the local pound within the Vale. This is good news for the local economy.

“We are at the stage where the council and external contractors are now gearing themselves up during the mobilisation period in readiness for the contract start date”
