development isn’t just run of The Mill: Community event calls it a great place to live

Leading housebuilder Lovell supported a local community event recently held at Treganna Primary School in Canton, Cardiff, to enable residents, local groups, services and businesses to make connections within the local area. Lovell Homes was chosen back in January 2016 as the preferred developer to work on The Mill development, which has been one of Wales’s biggest regeneration programmes. Combining the efforts of Lovell, the Tirion Group and Cadwyn Housing Association, the event was run by The Mill Living, the community network set up to keep residents informed and involved in the local area. The event turned out to be a success with lots of residents coming along to show their support. Canton locals chatted over tea and biscuits whilst interacting with local businesses including The Compound Gym, Principality Building Society, The Boiler House and Hollie’s Day Nursery, who ran an activity for children. The school hall had display boards featuring future phases of the development, including proposals for the neighbourhood centre. Lovell’s technical director, Shane Jay, also attended to answer any questions residents had about the development. Kathryn Williams, community partnership lead for The Mill Living said: “We knew there was interest from residents for this type of event, to get together and discover more about the development and the local community. “The local businesses are already very community minded and were keen to get involved. “Many of the businesses already work together in a range of different ways so this was an

opportunity to ‘join the dots’ and bring people and ideas together to find out how the community could be further enhanced.”

Bernadette Vickery, community coordinator for Lovell added: “The event was really positive, well attended and we were so pleased that so many residents and businesses got involved.” Tina Wilson Office and Corporate Affairs Manager at Tirion Homes added: “We are delighted with the attendance and positive feedback. It just goes to show that if you make a real effort to engage with residents then you can make real progress in forming the foundations of a vibrant community going forward”.
