The development of 10 single storey units is a redevelopment of the former Withy Beds Traveller site in Leighton Road, Welshpool. The site, first established in 1982, had a number of deficiencies which are addressed under the redevelopment. The Tŷ Unnos Modular amenity units are part of a wider improvement scheme which includes a new access road, footpaths, fire prevention systems, improved lighting and recreational facilities.

Each factory finished single storey building offers a lounge, dining room, kitchen, bathroom, cloakroom and storeroom, and requires only the completion of external cladding and roof assembly once on site.

Using a modern method of construction in the form of prefabricated units enabled the site to be refurbished quickly and with quality assured. The speed of installation also helped the scheme to be completed on time and to budget.
