Project Overview


Client: Wales and West Housing
Contract: JCT 2009/D&B
Estimated Value: £2.8m
Completed: June 2018

Information


The new Coed Onn affordable housing development consists of 23 units including 14 semi-detached houses, 2 semi-detached bungalows and 6 terraced properties and 1 special needs bungalow specifically adapted for wheelchair use and with other accessible facilities.

The £2.8m social and affordable housing project is in partnership with Wales & West Housing and the homes provide a welcoming community environment within the local area. With environmental awareness becoming increasingly important, all of the homes also include ‘green’ features such as rainwater-harvesting, water butts and compost bins.

Deputy Chief Executive and Commercial Director for Wales & West Housing, Shayne Hembrow, said:

“There are a good mix of properties here with three bungalows included, one fully accessible with disabled facilities, and there’s a huge demand for them. We have a very long-standing partnership with Anwyl Construction. The quality of our housing is very important to us and Anwyl are always very good at meeting our expectations”

Local School Engagement

Pupils from Ysgol Maeshyfryd were invited to help name the new road that would run through part of the development. The school hosted a competition amongst pupils and, after coming up with four possible names, Romans Way was chosen. This name marks the developments location being just meters away from where our team made an important Roman find, five years ago.

Veronica Breeze, a teacher at Ysgol Maeshyfryd, said: “It was a really good project and we spent a lesson looking at the history of Flint before picking four possible names.”

Our Senior Build Manager, Simon Rose has commented: “We were delighted with the range of names the school came up with and how hard they worked on their project. Romans Way is really appropriate because just down the road at Oakenholt we discovered an important Roman site and worked with archaeologists to preserve the finds.”

Shayne Hembrow, Deputy Chief Executive of Wales & West Housing, said: “It’s always a highlight of any new development to involve the local community in choosing a name.

“We’re delighted that it is not only bringing much-needed affordable homes to Flint but also a permanent reminder of a creative day at school for the winning group of children.”
