Treharne Road is within the Court area of Barry.
Customers told us:
They wanted improvements to their communal garden area.
The garden was previously used by Treharne Road residents to catch up, relax and enjoy the sun, but due to there being no entry gate, it was becoming a hot spot for fly-tipping and littering.
What we are doing:
We are working with Barratt Homes and Vale of Glamorgan Council to bring 36 new affordable homes to Barry Waterfront, just two miles from Treharne Road.
As part of the contract, a percentage of the development cost has been donated for community benefit, for reinvesting back into Barry.
We consulted with residents about how the garden area could be improved, resulting in a new side gate, pergola roof with guttering, rotary washing lines and a water butt being supplied and fitted by Barratt Homes, transforming the garden space for residents to enjoy again.
Through the fund, our team also secured a job for a resident at the Barry Waterfront site though our Targeted Recruitment and Training scheme.
Part two of the garden revamp is underway. We’re working with residents to create a new wellbeing space within the garden, including a new bench, raised beds and hanging baskets. These will be watered using rainwater from the water butt.
