The Barry Waterfront Consortium is made up of the UK’s three major house builders; Persimmon Homes, Taylor Wimpey and Barratt Homes who have come together embark on a quarter of a billion pound regeneration scheme for Barry.
This is expected to take between 10 and 12 years to complete, and will play the major role in the ongoing regeneration of the area. The success of this scheme is wholly reliant on significant private investment and there is no doubt that it will attract further investment into the town.
This complex development scheme will see the undeveloped waterfront opened up for public use, and will bring a range of much needed facilities to Barry, including the new link road to Barry Island, a waterfront café quarter, hotel, primary school and approximately 2,000 new homes comprising a mix of private and affordable housing.
There are huge economic benefits associated with a project of this magnitude, as the scheme will create significant new employment opportunities for local people and businesses both during and after the development period. This project will be a catalyst to improve the economic prosperity of the town.
