Parc Eirin

The UK’s largest actively managed housing development

Parc Eirin, Tonyrefail with Pobl Housing Association and Tirion Homes. This 15-acre site at the head of the Ely Valley will cater for 225 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 15-acre site is situated about 2.5km south of Gilfach Goch and 3km west of Tonyrefail, at the head of the Ely Valley and will cater for 225 homes for rent and sale. 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
