A HOUSING association in North Wales and its construction partners welcomed Conwy County Borough Council delegates to see how a former farmland has been transformed into a new housing development.

Adra, along with Beech Developments, has been developing 29 properties on the Cae’r Llynen estate off Narrow Lane, Llandudno Junction.

They include eight two-bedroom flats; 15 three-bedroom houses and six two-bedroom houses.

They will be a mixture of social rent, intermediate rent and rent to own, while some will also be advertised on the open market.

Hywel Eifion Jones, chair of Adra, said; “We are proud of the development at Cae’r Llynen and it is such an amazing location, close to the A55 expressway and with commanding views of the Conwy estuary and Conwy Valley.

“We have made a firm commitment in our corporate plan to build brand new, high quality homes that people can be proud of.

“There is clearly a demand in this part of Conwy county for this kind of development and reflects the position in many communities in North Wales. 

“The development will help meet that demand and we were delighted to be able to take the delegation from Conwy Council around the development, to see at first hand the high quality properties that are on offer.”

Cllr Charlie McCoubrey, leader of Conwy County Borough Council, said: “It’s extremely impressive the work that has gone on to provide such quality housing in this part of our county.

“There is so much focus on new properties being more energy efficient and it’s great to see Adra leading the way in terms of making these new properties cleaner and greener in terms of reducing the carbon footprint, whilst saving people money on energy bills at the same time.”

Cllr Emily Owen, cabinet lead member for housing, said: “It’s great to see a progressive housing organisation like Adra working in partnership with Beech Developments to invest in quality housing to meet the demand in Conwy county. 

“It’s a great place to live and work and this particular site is close to amenities, so we expect there to be a lot of interest in these properties.

“The housing demand issues facing Conwy residents is not unique and developments like this can only contribute positively to the increasing demand for high quality homes.

“Working together is clearly the way forward to addressing housing issues in North Wales.”

John Gardiner, director with Beech Developments, said:  “It has been a pleasure to work in conjunction with Adra to deliver much needed affordable housing in the local area.

“We hope we can continue to work with Adra to bring more affordable and energy efficient homes to North Wales.”
