New homes for local people in Wrexham

North Wales Housing has announced plans to create 12 newly built properties in Wrexham, representing further growth and a commitment to build sustainably, by the housing association.

Working closely with Wrexham County Council, the new scheme will be built in the Whitegate area of the town on the site of a former car park. At present the plans are to build 2 bedroom properties, in order to fulfil identified local need and will be built to Code 4 for Sustainable Homes, which is the Associations current new-build standard.

With work set to begin on site in spring next year, new tenants will be identified via the Councils housing waiting list.

North Wales Housing are now looking to appoint an architect for the development and will then be looking to draw up detailed plans for the site. An event will also be held locally in Whitegate, prior to the scheme starting on site, where residents and those interested in applying can find out more about the new development.

This scheme marks the first development that North Wales Housing has been involved in within Wrexham and forms part of a wider strategy to create new homes in key areas and tackle the wider issue of housing shortage.

Paul Diggory, Chief Executive of North Wales Housing said:

“The Wrexham scheme represent a fantastic opportunity to work in a new local authority area and live up to our ‘North Wales Housing’ name!”

“Not only will this development help tackle a shortfall in housing for local people within Wrexham but will support future tenants in reducing their energy bills by building to a sustainable and low energy design.”
