Alexandra Court in Mold is the latest development of new council housing under Flintshire's Strategic Housing and Regeneration Programme (SHARP) in partnership with Wates Residential.
Located on the former site of Ysgol Delyn off Alexandra Road, Alexandra Court is a cul-de- sac of 16 brand new council homes which is nearing completion. The first tenants have already moved in to their new homes
The Leader of Flintshire County Council, Cllr Aaron Shotton and local ward member Cllr Chris Bithell recently visited the development where they met with new tenants and saw how the former school site has been transformed into a modern, high quality housing development.
Cllr Aaron Shotton, Leader of Flintshire County Council said;
"I am delighted at the fantastic progress that continues to be made in the delivery of our house building programme.
"The demand for social and affordable housing in all our communities, urban and rural, continues to grow and we are determined to maintain the momentum gained over the last three years by our ambitious housing programme to address that demand. We are continuing to press Welsh Government to increase Flintshire's borrowing cap so that we are able to build more to meet local need.
'I am proud that Flintshire County Council is delivering the first new build council housing in Mold for a generation.'
"Alexandra Court and other schemes completed under our programme so far, such as Custom House Court in Connah's Quay and Heol y Goron in Leeswood, are at the heart of our local communities and provide high quality housing, helping to sustain those communities and create employment opportunities."
Cllr Attridge, Cabinet Member for Housing said;
"As with all council home schemes developed under SHARP the properties at Alexandra Court will be handed over to new tenants under a local lettings policy meaning priority is given to local people to enable them to remain living in their local communities.
Cllr. Chris Bithell, local member for Mold East said;
"Alexandra Court is situated opposite the first council homes built in Mold back in 1924 which were built to provide much-needed social housing in local communities at that time. I am very pleased that the site of the former Ysgol Delyn has been used to provide much-needed affordable housing for Mold people today."
