take shape into a beautiful, well-appointed home.
This area in Tredegar contained a high proportion of run down, neglected properties
which were mainly privately owned. The privately rented properties were mostly derelict
The Local Authority used Welsh Government's Vibrant and Viable Places funding to
regenerate the area as a pilot project to educate and inform future ECO work.
During this time, other parties undertook internal refurbishment work to bring their
empty properties back in use.

The owner entered into a 10 year lease agreement with United Welsh, which commenced August 2014.
