Brownfield regeneration deal signed

The regeneration of one of the largest brownfield sites in the UK has moved a step closer following the agreement of a section 106 planning deal.

The deal binds the developer of the Glan Llyn scheme in south Wales to investing in a set of community facilities and infrastructure improvements.

The agreement on the scheme near Newport means that work on the first phase of homes can start as soon as a development partner is confirmed, according to the scheme’s developer St Modwen.

Andy Evans, head of planning, regeneration and strategic housing at Newport City Council, said that the section 106 deal would require St Modwen to build two primary schools on the site of the scheme, as well as making an £8M contribution to the provision of education in the city.

He also said that the deal means that St Modwen must include a new district centre in the development, including a library, a doctor’s surgery and a police station.
