Investing in housing
The first tenants have moved into a new council housing development at the former Custom House Lane School site on Mold Road, Connah’s Quay.
The development of 12 council properties is the first site to be completed as part of Flintshire County Council’s Strategic Housing and Regeneration Programme (SHARP) and are the first new council homes to be built in Wales for over 20 years. Wates Residential has worked closely with the council to ensure that the properties have been built to a high quality standard with features that are both modern and energy efficient to keep running costs at a manageable level.
Councillor Aaron Shotton, Leader of Flintshire County Council said;
“I am delighted at the fantastic progress made on this site since work began in May 2016. I felt very proud to meet some of the new tenants as they saw their new homes for the first time and I was so pleased to hear the new tenants speak of ‘a new chapter in their lives’ and how excited they were to be moving into the Custom House development.”
More developments are in the pipeline over the next few months with work on building 40 new Council homes scheduled to begin at Leeswood, Mold and Connah’s Quay.
