Mid-Wales Housing Takes Over Affordable Housing On The Maes Brenin Estate, Rhayader

Newtown based Mid-Wales Housing Association is delighted to announce that it has taken over the ownership of the affordable housing properties on the Maes Brenin estate, Rhayader from Gwalia Housing, part of the Pobl group.

The Maes Brenin estate consists of 59 properties, and the Association will take over the management of 19 flats and 20 houses, with the remaining 20 properties having previously been sold.

Gwalia Housing are confident that Mid-Wales Housing Association will offer an excellent service to residents in the future, by providing a more local housing management service as Mid-Wales Housing's headquarters and principal maintenance contractor are based locally in Newtown. Whilst Mid-Wales Housing currently has only three properties in Rhayader, it owns a further 127 properties within ten miles of the town. The Association understands the needs of rural communities, having provided affordable housing throughout Mid-Wales for over 40 years.

Jean O'Neill, Interim Director of Customer Services at Mid-Wales Housing said: "We pride ourselves on being a community based Association that is small enough to be able to know most of our residents by name. Staff at Mid-Wales Housing have enjoyed meeting Maes Brenin residents and we hope it won't be too long before we know the residents personnally. We are looking forward to working further with the community to improve the quality of life for all concerned".
