Great progress on new affordable homes in Rhyl

14 November 2016

Work is underway on a development of new affordable properties in Rhyl, some of which will be available under the Welsh Government’s ‘Homebuy’ scheme, helping people to own a home of their own.

The Pennaf Housing Group, which includes Clwyd Alyn Housing Association, have engaged leading regeneration experts Galliford Try Partnerships to build 20 two and three bedroom houses facing the new Gerddi Heulwen green space area in the town, some of which will be available under ‘Homebuy’ allowing people who have a local link, either living or working in the area, to own their own home.

The new homes have been made possible thanks to partnership support from Denbighshire County Council and the Welsh Government as an integral part of the wider regeneration work in the town and representatives from all the partner agencies visited the development on Wendesday (Oct 5), including Cllr Ann Davies, Chairman of Denbighshire County.

“Work is really progressing well and we expect a high demand for the properties,” said Rob Hopkins, Sales and Leasehold Manager for Clwyd Alyn who added that the homes are being built by award-winning contractors Galliford Try.

“Homebuy is a great way for people to get their first step on the housing ladder. Under the scheme house-buyers who meet the eligibility criteria only need a deposit and mortgage for 50% of the property, so it can work out cheaper to buy than rent.

“Clwyd Alyn provides a loan for the other 50% of the property, but there is no cost for this to the home-buyer, it is simply repaid based on the value of the property if it is sold in the future.”

“The new, contemporary homes on Gronant Street are ideally suited for couples and families. They have been built to a high quality and each also has an allocated parking space.

“We’re expecting a high demand for the homes which are for sale and these will be allocated to first-time buyers who are working and directly connected to Rhyl, or moving to the town to take up employment.”

Councillor Barbara Smith, Denbighshire County Council’s Cabinet Lead Member for Housing said: “We are delighted to see work progressing on this initiative. It’s another quality project that will help improve the quality of life for local people.

“This is an exciting time for Rhyl, as we have seen the housing redevelopments taking shape and the ambitious waterfront proposals are progressing well.

“This development is another milestone in the wider regeneration of Rhyl.”

The homes are part of Pennaf’s £4.5 million investment in housing regeneration in Rhyl, working in partnership with the Welsh Government and Denbighshire County Council, transforming housing in the heart of Rhyl around the new Gerddi Heulwen Green Space area.

Pennaf has already completed a number of extensive refurbishment programmes around the area and is also nearing completion on a separate renovation scheme to properties in Abbey Street and Edward Henry Street.

The homes currently being built by Galliford Try Partnerships on Gronant Street and Abbey Street have been made possible with Welsh Government assistance and will be available to rent or buy under a tenure neutral scheme.
