LCB procured land and obtained planning approval to Trivallis’ requirements to deliver this new build/conversion social housing scheme. The conversion has provided 18 new homes (14 flats in the existing block, 4 new homes to the rear) on the site.
The old Welsh Language Primary School at Llantrisant, Pontyclun, had remained unoccupied since the school’s closure in 2005. The school was originally opened in 1867 and is formed of a solid Welsh stone construction, with a typical Victorian school layout, based around a central corridor. The building, whilst not listed, is registered as a ‘Structure of Merit’ as it sits within the Llantrisant Conservation area. The new homes have been sympathetically designed to maintain the original façade of the building, and the new build homes to the rear of the existing school’s footprint have been designed in a similar complimentary style.
