Work coming to an end on a new housing development in Caernarfon

Adra, North Wales’ largest housing association, is about to complete the development of 17 homes on a site near Ysgol Syr Hugh Owen in Caernarfon. The contractor for the development is DU Construction.

The development includes a mix of intermediate and social rent housing for local residents, with the first residents moving into the development early in the new year.

The name of the new estate is Rhandir Mwyn, to reflect the former use of the site.

Elliw Owen, Adra’s Senior Development Project Manager, said: “We are extremely proud to be able to provide quality homes for local people, there is so much demand for affordable housing in the area, which reflects the national picture.

“All the houses on the development will have an energy performance certificate (EPC) of A, with solar panels and heated by Air Source Heat Pumps.

“In addition, all properties will have a EV charger as part of a pilot scheme by Adra, in order to see if they would be of benefit to the residents.”
