Visible Results For Major Housing Project In Denbighshire

This article is old - Published: Wednesday, Mar 22nd, 2017

A Council-run major renovation project is transforming the appearance of properties throughout the county. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The works which started last year will see improvements to building facades, including new rendering, roofs, soffits, facia boards and guttering. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

To date, 45 properties in Parc y Dre, Ruthin and Maesafallen, Corwen have been fully refurbished externally. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Jamie Groves, Denbighshire’s Head of Facilities, Assets and Housing, said: “The completed works have significantly improved the appearance of both estates, and tenant reaction has been overwhelmingly positive. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

“The Council’s Housing Officers and the contractors’ Tenant Liaison Officers have ensured excellent communications with all tenants throughout the process. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

“It’s great to see the completed works carried out to such a high standard and we look forward to seeing works taking shape in other parts of the county”. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The next phase of the programme will see improvements to several estates in the north, with extra environmental refurbishments to paths and fences planned. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The contract has commenced in Trellewelyn Close and will also see improvements delivered to Trellewelyn Road, Pendre Avenue, Hen Afon Road, Glyn Avenue, Foel View Road, Leonard Avenue, Howell Drive and Colin Drive. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The project, part funded by Welsh Government, is due to be completed in July, and will see a total of 114 properties fully maintained in line with the Welsh Housing Quality Standard. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
