Holyhead homes almost ready for local families to move into Wednesday 23 May 2018
Grŵp Cynefin’s new chief executive has returned to a completed development she was instrumental in commissioning in her former role as head of housing at Anglesey Council.
Shan Lloyd Williams visited the scheme at Hen Briordy, in the heart of Holyhead, to hear that local families will soon be preparing to move into the almost completed first phase of six three-bed new homes.
The properties have been funded by a combination of Anglesey Council and Welsh Government’s Vibrant and Viable Places programme, which has meant a substantial investment in the town of Holyhead, and Grŵp Cynefin funding. The total investment in phase one is £750,000.
Work is now under way on the second and final phase, to build eight one-bedroom apartments, also for local people, in a cul-de-sac at the rear of the site.
The investment of £662,000 for the second phase has been sourced from the Welsh Government’s Social Housing Grant Fund.
Commissioned specifically in response to a need for family houses and one-bed apartments in the Holyhead area, the new properties are located close to the port at the foot of the rock housing the town’s landmark grade II listed Skinner’s Monument. The site was formally a health and social care resource centre.
Local contractor, B C Services (Anglesey) Ltd, of Caergeiliog, Holyhead, carried out the construction work.
Shan Lloyd Williams said: “This is our first building contract with BC Services, and it’s great to see the first phase of six three bed houses almost complete. The homes should be ready to move into by July this year.
“It has been a great experience to visit the site as the former Head of Housing Services for the Council in charge of housing, and now in my new post as Chief Executive of Grŵp Cynefin, I am about to see these homes being allocated to local families.
“During my visit, I also heard that the contractor has been working with Môn CF, to offer apprenticeship opportunities. I was also closely involved with the development of Môn CF whilst working for the Council, and I’m immensely proud that young people have been offered career opportunities as part of the development.”
The apartments are due for completion by March 2019.
