Parc Eirin

The UK’s largest actively managed housing development

Parc Eirin, Tonyrefail with Pobl Group and Tirion Homes. This 15-acre site at the head of the Ely Valley will cater for 225 affordable homes for rent and sale. The project is on site from late spring 2019 and is the host site for funding from the Welsh Government Innovative Housing Programme and UK government funding for domestic Demand Side Response. The scheme is the UK pilot for Western Power’s trial of three phase power into homes, and is believed to be the largest new build example of this in the UK.

The project was awarded planning consent in 2015 and has subsequently been proposed as an innovative development integrating low carbon technology seamlessly into the building fabric. The project has been awarded funding through the Welsh Government’s Innovative Housing Programme to demonstrate and promote a new scalable housing model for Wales. Sero has worked to integrate an advanced renewable technology solution for heat, hot water, electricity and vehicle charging, all linked to the Sero Life platform giving residents a simple low cost, low Carbon solution.
