Pumphouse project praised by AM

Jane Hutt

Jane Hutt, Vale AM, visited the Grade II-listed Pumphouse on Friday, April 24 and met with director of DS Property Developers Simon Baston.


The Hydraulic Pumphouse is part of the regeneration project within the Innovation Quarter on Barry’s Waterfront, which is a joint venture between the Vale Council and Welsh Government.

Jane Hutt viewed the progress on converting the building into business and leisure units as part of a ‘Live, Work, Play’ vision for the site.

She was around the building which was recently restored following an £800,000 Welsh Government grant and investment by the Vale of Glamorgan council.

Viewing the exciting new units which use the fabric of the building combined with local materials incorporating sustainable features, she also heard about plans for cafe and restaurant facilities.

Jane Hutt congratulated Simon Baston for his vision and commitment to this new development for Barry.
