Tenants move in to Denbighshire modular homes

One of the two Denbighshire modular homes

Tenants have moved in to two new modular homes in Denbighshire. The homes were built off-site, and were erected at Grŵp Cynefin’s development at Maes Glyndwr, Cynwyd.

The two new homes are in addition to six traditionally built houses already owned by Grŵp Cynefin on the site, at Cynwyd near Corwen.

The modular housing scheme, built in partnership with the Welsh Government’s innovative housing programme, helps reduce energy costs for tenants.

The two-bedroom homes are designed to retain heat, with environmentally friendly timber frames that help keep the properties warm.

By using a modular construction method the contractor was on site for less time, and there was less disruption to the local community.

Shan Lloyd Williams, chief executive of Grŵp Cynefin, said:

‘This project is an important part of our development programme, as we aim to build 120 new homes a year for the next few years, and are actively looking for more opportunities to develop.

‘Building quality affordable homes in rural areas such as Cynwyd in Denbighshire helps to address the identified need, giving each and every one of us a sense of pride in our work – thank you to everyone involved.’

Angela Bethan Gregory, who has moved in to one of the Denbighshire modular homes, said:

‘It’s been reassuring to be able to continue to live here in Cynwyd, a village that has been my home for over a quarter of a century, and where I have raised my family.

‘I am so pleased that I spoke to my local county councillor for advice and that the housing officer of Grŵp Cynefin made contact with me to say that two new houses were being built here. Within a few months, I have moved into an innovative house and settled well into my new home.’

Denbighshire County Councillor Mabon ap Gwynfor said:

‘It has been a positive experience to assist two local tenants within Llandrillo to discuss their housing needs with Grŵp Cynefin. Ensuring quality homes in a rural location like Cynwyd is always a challenge, and I take great pride in the fact that tenants who live and work locally have moved into these new homes.’
