WYG has secured planning permission from Newport City Council for the redevelopment of the former Olde Oak Stave public house, Rogerstone, Newport.
The proposals will see the demolition of the former public house and delivery of six no. 4 bedroom family homes, together with landscaping, access and associated works.
The Olde Oak Stave pub site in Rogerstone lies vacant following cessation of trading in 2018. The site has since become a target for anti-social behaviour. The proposed redevelopment will deliver large family homes on this vacant brownfield site, to the benefit of the local community and wider Rogerstone area.
Negotiations with Newport City Council helped shape the design and layout. A collaborative approach has ensured the development will complement and enhance the existing residential character of Rogerstone. Together with family homes, the scheme will provide contributions towards affordable housing, local education, and leisure facilities.
Oliver Hanney, Town Planner at WYG, said: “We are delighted to obtain planning permission for a scheme that is located in a highly sustainable location and delivers family homes, whilst also bringing a previously developed site back into use.”
