NEWPORT: Planning application for 122 homes near River Usk

Usk Way Flats Plans 1

More than 120 new flats could be built near the River Usk.

A planning application has been submitted by Jehu Group and Newport Homes to build 122 flats next Newport Student Village off Usk Way.

The land is currently being used as a car park.

The proposals include a residential and commercial developement with a cafe and a retail unit.

In total, 82 flats built as part of the developement would be considered affordable – which equates to 67% of the flats built.

Of these affordable flats, there would ten three-bedroom maisonettes, 37 two-bedroom flats and 35-one bedroom flats.

The remainder of the flats would be sold on the open market and would consist of five one-bedroom flats and 35 two-bedroom flats.

The developement includes plans for landscaping, sustainable drainage and parking spaces for both cars and bikes.

Residents can share their thoughts on the planning application by emailing planning@newport.gob.uk or by writing to: Head of Regeneration, Investment and Housing, Newport City Council, Civic Centre, Newport South Wales, NP20 4UR.
