Morganstone - Developments - Jobs Well Road

Jobswell Road, Carmarthen

Client: Pobl
Status: Completed

The scheme situated off Bro Myrddin, Carmarthen was designed by Rio Architects and was a partnership between housing provider Gwalia part of the Pobl Group, Carmarthenshire County Council, Wales Co-operative Centre and Morganstone Ltd.

The co-operative housing project was the first of its kind in Carmarthenshire and at the time of development was one of only three being piloted in Wales. It featured 27 homes consisting of two, three, and four bedroom house types. Members of the co-op managed the homes democratically, encouraging increased levels of satisfaction from doing so. Co-op members also decided how any surpluses made are used to improve the community.  A number of residents were elected to sit on the board, and they were responsible for making the key management decisions.

Since September 2014 residents who are living in the development have been attending fortnightly housing management sessions run by Gwalia and the Wales Co-operative Centre to ensure that they have the skills necessary to actively participate in the management of the co-operative. Morganstone attended a number of these sessions throughout the development.

Construction commenced in September 2015 and was completed in December 2016.
