Work underway to build 60 houses at new development near Anglesey college
A new housing development scheme in Anglesey has recently started near the Coleg Menai Pencraig campus in Llangefni.
The £9.6m project, which is led by ClwydAlyn in partnership with Anglesey County Council and Welsh Government, will create 60 new affordable homes that will be available to buy or rent by May 2023.
The development aims to offer energy efficient homes, including air source heat pumps to reduce heating costs and lower the carbon emissions.
Craig Sparrow, executive director at ClwydAlyn said: “This is an exciting new scheme on Anglesey that will provide high quality affordable homes and will address a key need for housing in the local area as well as provide a great learning opportunity for students from the college.
“Our mission is to beat poverty and ensure that everyone in North Wales has access to excellent quality housing.
“We’re delighted to be working in partnership with Anwyl Partnerships and Anglesey County Council to bring the scheme to fruition and meet local demands, as well as boosting local employment.”
Anwyl Partnerships will be carrying out construction work at the site, using its local in‐house project team.
The 4.2 acre site, which was formerly part of the college campus, will be transformed into a new development that will include 44 two‐ and three‐bedroom houses and 16 two bedroom apartments.
Mike Nevitt, managing director of Anwyl Partnerships, said: “This is a large project that essentially includes the construction of a brand new community in Llangefni, creating 60 much needed affordable homes for rent/sale.
“Community really does matter with this project and the site has been designed to help cultivate this ethos. Our approach will marry the long term vision of our clients and will be community led throughout.”
Anglesey Council’s housing portfolio holder, Councillor Alun Mummery, said: “This new housing project in partnership with Clwyd Alyn and Welsh Government represents our continued commitment to providing tenants and families with quality homes in communities across the island.
“I’m pleased to see that the work has started in Llangefni. We have seen significant increases in house prices on Anglesey recently and there is an even greater need to support local families to get on the housing ladder. This development will help us do this; benefiting local companies and the economy.”
This scheme is part of ClwydAlyn’s development programme to deliver a further 1,500 new homes in North Wales by 2025 at an investment of £250m, bringing the total number of homes in management to over 7,500
