NEW Homes in Abermorddu
Flintshire County Council's property management company, North East Wales (NEW) Homes, has recently taken possession of ten brand new homes to help boost the number of affordable houses for rent in the County.
Three of the new homes are on the new Anwyl housing development in Abermorddu.
Designed to respond to the challenges experienced by residents in accessing affordable housing, NEW Homes (North East Wales Homes) was set up by the Council to increase the housing options available to local residents. It offers tailored housing management services which are designed to increase the quantity and quality of affordable housing across the county.
These properties have been transferred to NEW Homes as part of the developers' affordable housing obligations on private developments. This ensures that new developments meet the affordable housing need for local people in the local community.
New tenants were delighted to be able to move in on the same day that the homes were handed over to NEW Homes.
Flintshire County Council's Deputy Leader and Chairman of the NEW Homes Board, Councillor Bernie Attridge, who has visited many of the new tenants to welcome them to their new homes, said:
"NEW Homes has been set up specifically to meet the affordable housing need within local communities and gifting of these properties as part of the developer's planning permission helps to achieve this. I'm proud to welcome new tenants into their new homes and it is rewarding to see families making a new start in their lives."
Mathew Anwyl, Housing Managing Director at Anwyl Homes, says: "We are proud to be part of NEW Homes' affordable housing campaign in Flintshire through the provision of three affordable units in Abermorddu. Delivering high quality, new build affordable housing for the benefit of the local community is important and we are pleased that NEW Homes has already welcomed their first tenants."
