Gwynedd clears path for 41 affordable homes
Housing associations Grŵp Cynefin and Clwyd-Alyn partnered with Williams Homes on the successful planning application for houses and flats in Penrhyndeudraeth.
Gwynedd County Council voted to approve the 41 homes at its planning committee meeting on Monday.
The fully affordable resi scheme will be built on three acres of agricultural land by Trem Y Moelwyn. Despite the site’s current use as a livestock pasture, it was allocated for housing in the Anglesey and Gwynedd Joint Local Development Plan.
Of the 41 homes, most will be houses. This includes one two-bed bungalow and one four-bed bungalow with wheelchair access. A six-bedroom supported living house is also included in the plans.
The other house mixture comprises 20 with two bedrooms, nine with three bedrooms, and one with four bedrooms.
The remaining eight homes are all one-bedroom apartments.
Tenures will be a mix of social and intermediate rent, part-ownership, and affordable intermediate housing for sale.
Each home would have at least one off-street parking space, with the six-bedroom house having four spaces.
Grŵp Cynefin is set to manage 19 of the homes, while Clwyd-Alyn will be charged with 22.
Ainsley Gommon Architects designed the homes, which will be built by Bala-based Williams Homes. The homes themselves will have locally built timber frames and be constructed using MMC.
In addition to the residential side of the project, the scheme includes a new access road off the Trem y Moelwyn Estate and a pedestrian access point from the nearby A487.
Owen Devenport is the planner for the project, which also has Land Studio, SCP, Enfys Ecology, Brython Archeology, and Datrys as members of its project team.
