New Affordable Homes In Llanfyllin

Locally based Mid-Wales Housing Association is pleased that the new affordable homes located at Maes-y-Dderwen, Llanfyllin are now complete and residents have moved into their new home.

The completed scheme provides 10 two, three and four bedroom attractive new homes located in a lovely rural position adjacent to the existing Maes-y-Dderwen estate.

The homes built by Williams Homes (Bala) Ltd have been built to a very high standard of thermal efficiency and performance and comply with the Welsh Government's Development Quality Requirements, Life Time Homes and Secured by Design Standards.

Mid-Wales Housing is once again proud to have promoted local employment and opportunities through the procurement of this scheme. The construction contract required the contractor to employ 80% local labour and provided training placements for building trade apprentices with Williams Homes achieving this and much more. Significant elements of the houses, such as timber frames and many of the building materials have been supplied by local companies.

The £1.9 m scheme was funded by significant funding from Welsh Government's Social Housing Grant with the remainder funded by Mid-Wales Housing Association.

Mr. Alex Dawson, Development Manager of Mid-Wales Housing said: "We are proud of the homes that are being developed in the town which will not only provide quality affordable housing for local people but also support local employment. He added: "The development is on land long identified by the community as suitable for affordable homes, in a rural location, where making such schemes a reality is a real challenge. The partnership with Williams Homes is a very positive way of dealing with such opportunities and we very pleased to welcome local families into their new homes".

New residents who recently moved in said: "I love my new family home", "we have a good sized kitchen and bedrooms in well insulated warm homes in a lovely rural setting".
