New affordable homes register to help people secure their dream home Friday 18 May 2018
Would-be homeowners and tenants in North Wales and Powys are being urged to join a new online affordable housing register to increase their chances of securing their dream home.
The Tai Teg register has been launched in a partnership between the region’s housing associations, local authorities, and the National Park Authority to simplify how people apply for an affordable home.
A number of schemes are available for those in employment and earning between £16,000 and £45,000, with some options catering for those earning up to £60,000.
Grŵp Cynefin is leading the project. In addition to Grŵp Cynefin, partners include The Snowdonia National Park Authority, as well as seven local authorities: Conwy County Borough Council, Denbighshire County Council, Flintshire County Council, Gwynedd Council, Powys County Council, Wrexham County Council, and Isle of Anglesey County Council.
The other associations involved are Cartrefi Cymunedol Gwynedd, Pennaf Housing Group, North Wales Housing, Wales & West Housing, and Cartrefi Conwy.
An affordable home is one that is provided at less than market value, either for rent or purchase. Tai Teg does not include social housing, with people advised to continue to access the relevant council housing register in their area.
Grŵp Cynefin chief executive Shan Lloyd Williams said: “Tai Teg will streamline the process of registering for and securing an affordable home in North Wales and Powys.
“I urge individuals who are seeking to rent or purchase an affordable home to sign up. Even if you have registered in the past, you must re-register but your original registration date will remain.
“A number of innovative schemes are available that will help people get onto the property ladder or secure a rented home. Interested parties can also find out more about the criteria and available properties on a dedicated website for Tai Teg.
“We would also like to speak to developers about how affordable homes can play an important role for them on their individual sites.”
The register will be used to comment on planning applications and support local authorities and housing associations to plan for future developments.
