"It was good to recently visit the new housing development being developed by Wyro Green Homes in Kerry. Very positive to hear that this scheme is going to be highly energy efficient, with some homes being 'Carbon Neutral' and achieving an 'A' Energy Performance Certificate rating. Also great to see much needed houses being built here in Montgomeryshire."

Dolforgan View: Work begins on next phase of popular housing development near Newtown

19th October 2020

The next phase of a popular 62-home development in a village near Newtown is underway.

 

Nineteen new three and four-bedroom detached homes at Dolforgan View in Kerry are expected to go on the market from Spring 2021. So far 26 homes have been completed since the development began in 2019. And with the coronavirus lockdown and subsequent problems, Wyro Developments revealed that it has not impacted house sales at the site.

Mark Bamber, manager, said: “We’ve managed to surpass sales targets for Phases 1A and 1B having already been fortunate enough to sell 25 of the 26 homes that we’ve built so far”.

Site Manager Alan Cound added: “We are all proud to be building high quality energy efficient homes in the local area of Kerry and utilising the latest technologies for better value living and knowing that our new homes will have less of an impact on the environment." Since the development began last year, new speed limit signs, traffic calming measures and a zebra crossing have been installed in the village to improve road safety.

First phase of new 62 home development in Kerry gets underway

19th June 2019

The Dolforgan View scheme, situated on the Western end of the village, was originally proposed in 2008, and includes a mix of two, three and four bedroom homes. A total of 21 'affordable houses' were included as part of the original application by WYRO Developments Ltd., a joint venture between local companies Wynnstay Group PLC and SJR Group, but were subsequently removed from plans. Nonetheless, County Councillor Kath Roberts-Jones, Independent councillor for Kerry, said the development would be welcomed by young buyers looking to get on the property ladder.The scheme will also see road safety improvements carried out in the village, with a new zebra crossing as well as a 40mph 'buffer zone' proposed at either end of Kerry to help slow down traffic passing through to and from nearby Newtown.

"This is an important development in North Powys, providing much needed new quality homes in the area." The first phase of the development will include 22 properties, consisting of nine two-bedroom homes, and thirteen three-bedroom homes. Two further phases will follow to complete the 62 home development. Developers say the new 'energy-efficient' properties will include UPVC double glazing and will use locally sourced timber frames from Marton based firm Lowfield Timber Frames, part of the SJR Group.
