Home-seekers are invited to view and find out more about homes available to rent in Rowan Place, Rhymney, NP22 5DU at an open day being held from 3pm – 5pm on Wednesday 15th June. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Caerphilly County Borough Council is hosting the event to encourage prospective tenants to view the flats which have been transformed through a regeneration programme of over £4 million. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

There are currently a number of fully refurbished 2 bedroom ground and first floor flats available to rent, each with its own private garden. Only families with one child are eligible for the properties and the council welcomes applications from people not currently on its waiting list. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

As well as being able to view a show flat, there are also opportunities for people to view new plans for the area and talk about proposals to further improve Rowan Place. There will also be a free barbeque, children’s activities and information on local services available in the area. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Additional improvements to the area have been made possible through £1 million funding from Welsh Government’s Vibrant and Viable Places Tackling Poverty fund. As well as enhancing the project at Rowan Place, this funding was used on the refurbishment of Hafod Deg Resource Centre which re-opened last year on Rhymney High Street to provide a ‘hub’ for local people to access services. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Cllr David Poole, the council’s Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Housing, said “Rowan Place has been transformed dramatically through this investment and further improvements planned to the wider environment will enhance the area even more. I would encourage families who may be looking for a home to go along to the open day, to view the standard of improvements the council has made to these properties for themselves.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Anyone with questions about the open day should contact Owain Morgan on 01443 864291 or by emailing morgao@caerphilly.gov.uk ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
