Client: Pobl Group & Powys County Council
Location: Ystradgynlais, Swansea
Scheme Overview: On behalf of Pobl Group and Powys County Council we will be redeveloping and extending the Pont Aur housing complex.
The accommodation for older people on Ynyscedwyn Road is being extended and will provide ExtraCare housing for the first time in the south of Powys, in a £5.5m partnership project between Powys County Council and the Pobl Group.
The development will consist of; upgrading the existing sheltered housing accommodation, including the introduction of the ExtraCare element to accommodate local people with some or no care needs. The scheme will add 12 more homes for local older people in an extension to the existing building.
ExtraCare delivers modern purpose-built accommodation which has 24-hour care and support available on site to meet the needs and changing expectations of residents, allowing them to live as independently as possible in their own homes with their own front door. 24-hour care services are located on site, couples and friends can stay together and there is a mix of people with differing levels of need, including those who are living independently.
