With the shocking shortage of affordable housing to rent or buy in the region, it is great news that Pembrokeshire County Council  has acquired 46 former Ministry of Defence (MoD) properties on the outskirts of Haverfordwest to be used as council housing.

Purchased using a Land and Buildings Development Grant from the Welsh Government, the three-bedroom houses at the Cashfields Estate mean 38 properties to let over the next few months. A further eight properties are already occupied by tenants.

The properties are being brought up to Welsh Housing Quality Standards and will be added to the housing list as they become available. This is all part of a new council house acquiring and building programme which is set to see an improvement in available homes that are safe and energy efficient.

The council has let it be known that when the Cashfields Estate and other properties are nearing completion, they will appear on the weekly Choice Homes advert and will be allocated in line with the Choice Homes Allocations Policy.

If you are interested in knowing more about these properties or in any other proposed builds in the development programme, you are advised to complete a housing application form.

Please email housing@pembrokeshire.gov.uk or call 01437 764551 for an application form.

For any other queries please contact the Housing Customer Liaison Team via email on housingCLO@pembrokeshire.gov.uk.
