Working with housing provider Clwyd Alyn, the Deeside-based contractor has started on a £3.1m scheme to deliver 30 retirement apartments in Connah’s Quay.
Funded by the Welsh Government’s Social Housing Grant, secured in partnership with Flintshire Council, along with private investment by Clwyd Alyn, the project includes the regeneration of a derelict site next to the listed St Mark’s Church.
Planning permission has been secured and demolition works are under way ahead of a full start on site in the coming weeks. The project is set to hand over in September 2020.
Cassidy + Ashton is the architect.
Tom Anwyl, managing director of Anwyl Construction, said: “This is a positive and exciting scheme for many reasons. Not only are we regenerating an abandoned site that has become an eyesore for the local community, but we are creating a high number of quality homes for local people.
“This is one of the first schemes that we have developed under our new ‘turnkey’ approach where we partner with a housing provider to identify a site, acquire the land, secure planning and deliver the build. In effect, we are able to present a complete package and solution to registered housing providers, supporting them in the often complex and challenging route to delivering new homes.”
