Construction work is now underway to deliver 100% affordable homes in Garden City, Deeside that will provide a mixture of homes for the area.
The Northern Gateway development, which is led by ClwydAlyn in partnership with Flintshire County Council, Welsh Government and Lane End, will feature 100 homes, of which will be two, three and four bedroomed homes as well as two bedroomed bungalows and one and two bedroomed flats.
The scheme will offer energy efficient and carbon friendly homes, with an EPC rating of A and will include a range of sustainable technologies.
