The £3.89m project, which is a partnership between ClwydAlyn, Denbighshire County Council and the Welsh Government, has seen the 33 of the existing flats demolished and now the construction of 13 three-bedroom affordable family homes by NWPS Construction.
These new homes are part of the Transforming Towns Scheme for the redevelopment of West End of Rhyl. Five of the new homes fall into the conservation area which will see the reconstruction of the facades to look the same as the existing properties in order to preserve the area’s rich heritage.
All homes are built as lifetime homes and designed so that they are easily adaptable to the changing needs of the residents, helping them to live independently for longer. These new homes meet and exceed the current regulatory standards: Welsh Government Housing Quality Standard, Welsh Government Development Quality Requirements and Welsh Government Beautiful Homes and Spaces Standards.
ClwydAlyn’s aim is to tackle fuel poverty and help minimise the impact less energy efficient homes can have on people’s health and wellbeing. Built using greener technologies and innovative designs, these new homes are super energy efficient and benefit from:
- Air source heat pumps
- Solar electricity panels
- Homes positioned to maximise solar gain and natural daylight
- Electric car charging facilities
- ‘Modern Methods of Construction’, using as many natural and sustainable materials as possible
- Sourcing materials from local manufacturers and suppliers, keeping carbon footprint low.
These homes can make a big difference. They’ll help residents support the environment; save precious energy and they could save money in the long run too.
The site has 13 homes
