Torfaen County Borough is offering for sale land, which was formerly the site of Trevethin Comprehensive School at Penygarn Road.
The site is approximately 12.4 acres and lies 1 mile to the north east of Pontypool town centre. Penygarn is approximately 6 miles north of Cwmbran town centre and approximately 10 miles north of Newport City centre. The site is bounded by residential properties, woodland and open space.
The site is in an elevated position and offers unobstructed views across Pontypool. The development will consist of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes, which includes a mix of detached, semi-detached and terraced dwellings.
A public consultation was recently conducted at Trevethin and Penygarn Community Centre. Based on the feedback received, a planning application is due to be submitted to Torfaen County Borough in January 2013. As part of this planning process, a second stage of public consultation is expected to take place towards the end of January 2013.
