Carmarthenshire Council announces plans for 61 new council homes

Plans have been revealed to construct 61 new council homes in Carmarthenshire, as part of an £8.5 million investment to increase the council’s housing stock.

The houses will be built in Llwynhendy, Pembrey, Llandybie and Llandovery.

The council was the first local authority in Wales to build new council homes since the 1980s when it developed 12 new homes in 2014.

Almost 20 homes have already been bought this year at a collective cost of £1.7 million.

If the plans are approved by full council, building could be begin next March.
