Llain Delyn Gwalchmai
The development at Llain Delyn, Gwalchmai is now home to ten local families.
The £1.85 million development was a partnership between Grŵp Cynefin and the Isle of Anglesey County Council and the project is part funded through the Welsh Government social housing grant.
All homes boast environmentally friendly elements. One of these is the hot water and heating system that absorbs heat from the outside air to generate the energy for the home – an air source heat system.
With a mix of 2 one-bedroom bungalows, 2 two-bedroom bungalows, 4 two-bedroom houses and 2 three-bedroom houses, a variety of people were able to apply for a home on the estate.
“The bungalow is very warm and comfortable”
Terence Thomas, 65, who suffered a stroke some years ago, said that hearing the news that a bungalow was available for him and his wife, Vanessa, was a great comfort to them:
“We have settled in well and the bungalow is very warm and comfortable. Vanessa’s put a bench outside where I can sit and have a chat with neighbours as they pass by and we feel fortunate that the development happened at the right time for us. We are looking forward to a more comfortable year in our new home.”
“Making a positive impact on local people’s lives”
Grŵp Cynefin’s Director of Innovation and Growth, Mel Evans said: “Providing quality affordable housing is one of our priorities, and we are delighted that the Llain Delyn development has been completed and is now home to local people.
“As a social landlord who manages and owns more than 4,800 properties in these areas, we are proud to be making a positive impact on people’s lives.”
“Opportunities to live in affordable quality homes”
Anglesey’s Housing portfolio holder, Councillor Alun Mummery, added: “The development at Llain Delyn, in Gwalchmai, is another fine example of our work with key partners, including Grŵp Cynefin. Together, we are making sure that people in local communities have opportunities to live in affordable quality homes across a wide range of tenures to meet their housing need.”
