The urban revival begins

The Welsh Government, IHP funded project at Goodsheds has broken ground in Barry Docks with the country’s first ‘Urban High Street’ being developed. The scheme has been developed in conjunction with Welsh Government, The Local Authority, Simon Baston and Newydd Housing Association all working in partnership to develop a space where the local community of Barry and the Vale of Glamorgan can live, work and play in a sustainable environment.

The project is split in to 2 distinct parts. The 1st being the renovation of the existing GoodSheds Building and installation of a ‘Shipping Container Village’ which is a natural extension of the innovation quarter of Barry. The scheme will support a number of   superb restaurants, tech hubs, outdoor gym, cinema screens, a shipping container village, farmers markets and more.

The 2nd part is the construction of 42 Apartments that will further complement the project. These units are being built by construction partner Jehu for Newydd Housing Association, who will manage and own the apartment block. Newydd will be instrumental in providing affordable homes to the local community and users of the innovation quarter.

RPA are delighted to be fully involved in both parts of the project and look forward to the successful completion of the project.
