Branching out to provide more housing

Adra housing association are forming exciting new partnerships across the north, with work on over 50 new properties in Conwy county now underway.

Last year, Adra were approved to be zoned in Conwy, Denbighshire and Wrexham which means they can now apply for Welsh Government grants to build affordable homes in these three counties as well as Gwynedd.

Working in partnership with Conwy Council and local contractors, four exciting schemes are being developed across the county.

Adra Chief Executive Ffrancon Williams explains: “As a progressive and growing organisation, we are aiming to build 800 new homes across north Wales over the next seven years. We are forming exciting new partnerships with local authorities, with the Single Access Route to Housing (SARTH) housing register and affordable housing register, Tai Teg as well as many contractors and developers who will work with us on building these homes.

“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our partners at Conwy Council for welcoming us as a new partner, we look forward to developing many more homes with their support over the coming years.

“We are passionate about ensuring people in north Wales have a great home and the support they need to live and thrive in their communities. We hope to make an impact through these partnerships and expand our scale whilst remaining true to our core Gwynedd tenants. There are exciting times ahead.”

Councillor Elizabeth Roberts, Cabinet portfolio holder for Social Care (Adult, Community Services and Housing) at Conwy Council added: “We would like to welcome Adra to Conwy, we are excited to work with them on these much-needed quality affordable homes and look forward to the delivery of more affordable housing for local people across Conwy.”
