Wates Residential, part of the Wates Group, is one of the UK’s leading developers. The business operates across London and the South, working with public and private sector clients to build more and better quality homes. This is driven by a shared vision that everyone deserves a great place to live.
Wates Residential applies a special type of regeneration to every scheme that it develops. This looks beyond bricks and mortar and is focused on supporting the wider long-term development of sustainable communities. By engaging with key stakeholder groups early, the team ensures that local needs are placed at the heart of every development.
Cardiff Living is an exciting, award-winning development partnership between Wates Residential and the Cardiff Council to deliver 1,500 new homes across 40 sites in Cardiff over 10 years. At least 40% of the 1,500 total homes will be council rented. The first of three phases of development commenced in March 2017.
The Cardiff Living partnership is an outstanding example of how collaboration between the public and private sector can deliver a different approach to residential development, as well as real long-term sustainable community benefits. To date, £15.3 million has been generated in economic, environmental and social value for the local community. This includes the creation of local training and employment opportunities and investing in local charitable organisations and community groups.
