“We will use UK and Welsh grown timber to help the local supply chain, which will benefit the rural economy of Wales” says Cllr James Evans in this short video talking about Powys’ upcoming housing projects.

One of the sites mentioned in the project, The Bowling Green in Newtown is a three storey development of one and two bedroom flats. Through the Home Grown Homes Project, Woodknowledge Wales and our delivery partners TRADA, Coed Cymru and Cardiff Metropolitan University are helping to inform on the construction method to help improve the quality of the build and the use of locally sourced timber.
