In one of his final visits to the region as First Minister of Wales, ClwydAlyn welcomed Mark Drakeford to its newly completed affordable housing development in Pentraeth, Anglesey.

Joined by Lesley Griffiths, Minister for Rural Affairs, North Wales and the Trefnydd, the ministers had the opportunity to visit the much-needed new homes and speak with residents moving into the development.

ClwydAlyn has been working in partnership with Anglesey County Council and Welsh Government, to bring affordable and energy-efficient housing to Anglesey.

The project has seen the construction of 23 new homes, including a mix of 1-bedroom apartments and 2, 3, and 4-bedroom houses.

Thirteen of the homes are managed directly by ClwydAlyn, with the remaining ten managed by Anglesey County Council.

Built by Williams Homes, each home in the development incorporates a range of innovative features aimed at minimising environmental impact, enhancing energy efficiency and reducing bills. These include air-source heat pumps, solar panels and electricity storage batteries, as well as electric car charging facilities.

ClwydAlyn also prioritised sourcing materials from local manufacturers and suppliers, further minimising the carbon footprint of the construction process and supporting the local economy.

Completion of the homes represents a significant step in addressing the need for more affordable housing in Anglesey and contributes to the County Council’s commitment to build more than a thousand new homes on the island.


“I was really pleased to visit this development of new homes in Pentraeth, which represents a significant investment in affordable housing for the local community.

“We know that more people are being affected by rising heating bills amidst the cost-of-living crisis and some are facing fuel poverty. Energy-efficient developments such as this are hugely important in driving down costs for residents while minimising the impact on the environment.”

The Minister for Rural Affairs, North Wales & the Trefnydd, Lesley Griffiths added:

“Projects like this, which focus on sustainability and energy efficiency, are crucial in addressing housing challenges and ensuring that everyone in Wales has access to safe, secure, and affordable low carbon homes, not just for today but for years to come.”

The development, located adjacent to Stad Diwydiannol Pentraeth, is part of ClwydAlyn’s mission to tackle fuel poverty and promote environmental sustainability.

ClwydAlyn is currently constructing a further 558 high-efficiency homes and is taking proactive measures to improve sustainability in the sector ahead of Welsh government legislation ensuring housing efficiency by 2030.

Craig Sparrow, Executive Director of Development at ClwydAlyn said:

“The transformation of this site into 23 new high-quality, carbon-friendly and affordable homes is a reflection of our wider mission to enrich communities across North Wales while ensuring housing that is fit for the future

“We were really pleased to welcome the First Minister and Minister for North Wales to the scheme to show the impact that affordable housing developments like this have on local people and the wider community

“The completion of the scheme is a testament to the success of our partnership working with Anglesey Council and Williams Homes, who have helped bring the scheme to fruition.”
