Schools and travel
My family and I are looking to purchase a property in the village as we love it. Can anyone tell me which primary school is used by most of the local children and if there is a school bus service?
I can see a variation of schools in the catchment area ie. Milton, llanmartin and langstone. I was hoping to enrole my 8yr old in a school that other children in the village attend to ease his transition.

New Windows for the Village Hall
New windows are currently being installed in the Village Hall, they are going to look fabulous. Many thanks to the Community Council, Village Hall Management Committee and FCE (Steve Davies) for making it happen.

Llanwern Development
I am looking to purchase a property on the Bishton Road that starts just after the Miilton Pub and then runs through Bishton until you reach Underwood. There had been a lot of talk about the regeneration of Llanwern, so could you let me know if there are any reasons that would put me off buying in Bishton Road.

Many thanks

Development In Lanwern
Hi there, we are looking to potentially purchase a property on Milton Hill. We love the way the village is now. However checking around on the internet it shows that their is going to be massive development in the village which would according to what I have seen completely change the dynamics of the village from that of surrounded by fields to housing estates. Obviously this is a concern and may deter us from purchasing property in the village. Then when I read the information again it said that this was first phase and to start in 2011 and the second part at Llanwern steelworks to be the second phase. I know that second phase has started however I am interested to find out if the first phase has been abandoned, Can anyone give me their views please? you can either respond on here or email me.

Thank you.

Have they abandoned work on the gypsy site in Hartridge Farm Road? There has been no activity on the building site since before Christmas?
Posted by Sam Morgan on 25 February 2014
The work that Welsh Water were doing,was related to a Sewer improvement,nothing to do with the proposed Gypsy and Traveller site.
The Local Development Plan is still to be approved, but the site proposals still stand.

Is there anymore activity on the proposed travellers sites at Cothill and Hartridge Farm Road?
