We provide new homes for more than 340 people at Grangetown, Cardiff

More than 340 people now call Ffordd Yr Haearn home.

The final residents moved into the 100-home development in Grangetown, Cardiff, in the summer.

Built in partnership with Cardiff Council and Welsh Government, Ffordd Yr Haearn is a mix of 1 and 2 bed apartments and 2,3 and 4 bed houses and sits next door to the city’s Ikea store.

Mum Stephanie Clements said: “The house itself is perfect. It’s spacious, modern and brilliant for keeping the heat in.”

Stephanie and her two children were among the first residents to move in last year, having moved from the Channel View area following Cardiff Council’s redevelopment plans.

“The area is quieter and safer with more privacy due to a spacious fenced back garden. The children feel safer and more relaxed too as there is less traffic.”

Play worker Jess Emslie, age 21, is turning her life around after moving into her new apartment at Ffordd Yr Haearn, with her two pet dogs. She says: “I feel like this is a place I can really call home.”

Stephanie & Jess were among some of the residents who recently met with Cardiff Councillors Lynda Thorne, Cabinet Member for Housing and Communities, and Ashley Lister and Abdul Sattar, together with Wales & West Housing’s Group Chief Executive, Anne Hinchey, and some Board members during a visit to the homes.
