Adra welcomes planning news in Y Felinheli

As one of the main providers of affordable housing in north Wales, we welcome the planning decision for 23 affordable homes for local people in Y Felinheli.

Planning permission has been granted to develop the site near Y Wern, Felinheli to include 23 modern homes, including 15 houses, 4 bungalows, and 4 flats which are a mix of social rent and intermediate rent homes.

Following planning permission being granted last month, the intention is that the development work will start on the site in the summer.

Huw Evans, our Head of Development, said: “We are pleased that this development has been granted planning permission, and we look forward to seeing the work begin on site.

“There is so much demand for affordable housing in Gwynedd and north Wales, which reflects the national picture. We have made a firm commitment in our Corporate Plan to build new homes that local people can be proud of, which are energy efficient, of high quality and affordable in terms of rent and heating costs.”

This development is part of a partnership between Cyngor Gwynedd and Housing Associations as part of Cyngor Gwynedd’s Affordable Housing Development Programme. The plan was funded by the Welsh Government through Cyngor Gwynedd’s Social Housing Grant.

Councillor Craig ab Iago, Cyngor Gwynedd’s Housing and Property Cabinet Member, said:

“There is an urgent need for more affordable housing in Gwynedd, and I welcome the great news that Adra has received planning permission to move forward with this development in Y Felinheli.

“Working together with Adra and other housing associations, the Council is committed to increasing the housing supply in Gwynedd, and the Gwynedd Affordable Housing Development Program is a key part of the efforts to ensure that the people of Gwynedd have access to suitable homes from standard, which is affordable in their own communities. This is part of a wider Housing Action Plan by the Council which aims to create over 1000 new homes over the next few years.”

It is hoped that the homes will be completed by spring 2026.
