Affordable homes open day Wednesday 27 May 2015

People interested in buying an affordable home at a new housing development near Bangor are invited to an open day.

Gwynedd Council’s Planning Department and Strategic Housing Unit have ensured that 58 of the homes on the new Goetre Uchaf estate will be affordable, the highest number for any housing development in Gwynedd to date. Goetre Uchaf is a 245-house development currently being built at Penrhosgarnedd.

Anyone interested in purchasing one of the affordable homes must log their details with Tai Teg – a register of local people who are eager to own their own home, but are currently unable to buy on the open market. The scheme aims to match people with potentially suitable homes in Gwynedd and Anglesey.

Anyone interested in an affordable home at Goetre Uchaf can call by the open day on Saturday, 30 May between 10am and 2pm at the Goetre Uchaf Site, near Bangor. Staff will be available to answer any questions about the Tai Teg register.

Councillor Ioan Thomas, Gwynedd Council’s Cabinet Member with responsibility for affordable housing, said: “I’m pleased that so many affordable homes will be available at this housing development and would urge those who are having difficulties in getting a house to buy which is suitable to their needs to come along to the open day.

“Helping people to secure a home which is within their financial reach is a high priority for Gwynedd Council so that people can stay within their own communities, especially during these financially difficult times when house prices continue to escalate.

“I would also urge more people to register with the Tai Teg scheme by visiting the website It can help match people with suitable homes, and also helps the Council and housing associations to create a fuller picture of what the local housing needs are.”
