Tyisha is changing - Testing the market
5. Regenerating Tyisha
The site at the heart of these plans is made up of council owned land spanning through Station Road and branching onto the adjacent road, Great Western Terrace.
The main redevelopment sites (the Four Ty’s and Clos St Paul) total around 15 acres, but more land could be available on adjacent sites if it is of benefit to the project.
We are seeking a partner to help us deliver this exciting project.
The project must develop and deliver a mix of house types and tenures such as affordable housing (shared ownership), occupier owned and social housing consisting of mainly 2 and 3 bedroom homes. This will need to be take into consideration the demographic profile of the area.
We also want to build on our vision of how we can create a better place to live by improving the general environment through landscaping and tree planting.
The main focus of this development is the Four Tys site which will be demolished and the land cleared by us before the new development commences. Other sites could be acquired and form part of the project.
Any partner would need to apply the current available housing need information to balance the housing requirements for the area and financial viability of the overall scheme.
We are also working closely with the Town Council and others to improve local transport links and the traffic flow. This is central to our plans to ensure the connectivity of Tyisha.
Plans should take into consideration the area’s heritage including the old Copperworks school site. It was the first primary school in Llanelli and also the site of the first Welsh medium school in the area. Consideration should also be given to the investment to improve the train station (on the Fishguard to London main line) and the redevelopment of the grade one listed goods yard (for community led use).
