The housebuilder has completed projects totalling almost 100 homes, under contracts worth £10m on behalf of social housing provider ClwydAlyn.

The three apartment schemes are the redevelopment of the Boars Head pub in Ewloe, the Edelweiss hotel in Colwyn Bay and the site of the Albion hotel and social club in Connah’s Quay.

The former public house and hotels had all been left unoccupied for several years and were in need of regeneration, according to Anwyl Partnerships.

The first, the £3.5m Boars Head scheme, saw the construction of 28 one- and two-bedroom apartments for over-55s, as well as three houses for families, to create affordable homes in Flintshire.

The £3.5m Edelweiss project involved the demolition of the former hotel building after it had suffered years of neglect, and the construction of 31 affordable homes including 14 one-bedroom and 17 two-bedroom apartments.

In Connah’s Quay, meanwhile, the former Albion hotel was redeveloped into 30 elderly living apartments under a £3.1m contract. The site which again had become unsafe and a target for antisocial behaviour, Anwyl said.

Tom Anwyl, managing director of Anwyl Partnerships, said: “We’ve worked closely with ClwydAlyn to develop these homes based on specific, local need. Not only have we created much-needed, high-quality homes in these towns, but we’ve also transformed and redeveloped key sites, helping further drive critical regeneration.”

And Craig Sparrow, executive director of development at ClwydAlyn, added: “These three projects are an important part of our strategy to deliver new housing across North Wales, to provide new homes for people needing a variety of different types and tenures of accommodation.”
