Coed Darcy Urban Village Development Could Create 4000 Jobs

February 25, 2011

Construction is beginning of a housing estate which forms part of one of the biggest regeneration schemes in Wales.

Set to become a thriving sustainable community of 4,000 traditionally-styled Welsh homes, Coed Darcy will provide more than 10,000 residents with retail, leisure and community facilities, including four schools, plus acres of green open space with breathtaking views over the Gower Peninsula and Swansea Bay.

St Modwen said the work will provide about 880 local jobs, resulting in a new community of 10,000 people.

The Prince of Wales is supporting the scheme through his Prince’s Foundation.

Sixty homes have already been built, but on Monday work will begin on Coed Darcy’s main site which initially will be made up of 302 homes.

A range of homes, townhouses and flats will form the first of three residential neighbourhoods planned at Coed Darcy.
