Caerphilly County Borough Council has a number of homes available to rent in Rowan Place, Rhymney; an area currently being transformed thanks to a £4.2 million regeneration programme. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The council is carrying out extensive internal and external improvements to homes in Rowan Place including new roofs, rendering, kitchens, bathrooms and heating systems. Residents are also being consulted on plans to transform the general appearance of the area, including improved street lighting and environmental improvements. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The improvements are being carried out as part of the council’s wider Welsh Housing Quality Standard (WHQS) programme, which will see an investment of £200 million made into transforming the homes of council tenants throughout the county borough. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Cllr David Poole, Deputy Leader of the Council and Cabinet Member for Housing, said “Since the council embarked on the Rowan Place regeneration programme in October 2014, the area has seen a remarkable transformation. The multi-agency approach that’s being taken on this project is also having a significant impact upon the lives of local people; with different agencies working together to provide additional support for residents, including a range of services being delivered for local people from the Hafod Deg Resource Centre on Rhymney High Street. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

“The renovated flats that are available to rent in Rowan Place have all been finished to an extremely high standard and I would urge people to contact the local housing office to arrange a viewing.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Homes available to rent currently are a mix of 2 bedroom ground and first floor flats which are available only to families with one child. The properties are all owned by the council and have been fully refurbished. Each flat has its own private garden and is close to local transport links, shops and amenities. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
