Coed Darcy

Coed Darcy is the site of the former oil refinery in Llandarcy and measures over 500 hectares. It is the largest regeneration project in Wales, with £1 billion of investment being poured into the scheme. The site is being comprehensively redeveloped for 4,000 homes, a town centre, employment and retail facilities, primary and secondary schools, landscape and ecological benefits and other associated community infrastructure.

Project Details

On the site of a former oil refinery, the site is over 500 hectares in size.

  • 4,000 homes
  • Primary and secondary schools
  • Employment and retail facilities

As part of a proposed redevelopment of a beautiful and historic site, Barton Willmore gained planning consent for a new community including 4,000 homes, securing reserved matters for 302 homes on behalf of Persimmon Homes, as part of Phase 1. In terms of the reserved matters consent and associated discharge of conditions, Barton Willmore provided the planning and design services whilst managing the input of a range of sub-consultants.

With the removal of all but one of the existing and rather tired buildings, together with new roads and other infrastructure, the new development will be an exemplary holiday park that will complement and harmonise with the natural form and landscape of the site.

The project has not only created a vibrant, desirable destination that brings beneļ¬ts not only to the site, but also to the historic town of Laugharne, with its beautiful castle, and the surrounding areas.
