This is the latest scheme to address a significant need for council housing in the Vale, with around 6,000 people currently on the waiting list.

It follows the completion of a similar development at Llys Llechwedd Jenner, while there are others in the pipeline at Hayes Road and Hayeswood Road in Barry along with an older persons' apartment complex in Penarth.
