The project is to deliver an Extra Care Facility in Holywell for Registered Housing Provider, Wales & West Housing. The building will comprise of 55 apartments with communal facilities and garden areas, to create an end to end solution to supported, independent living.

Work commenced on the former Ysgol Perth-Terfyn site in July 2018, this project will see a huge uplift to the local economy for the duration on site and thereafter. The plans for the build consist of a 4-storey structure, encompassing 43 one-bedroom and 12 two-bedroomed apartments. The Holywell Extra Care Development will provide 24 hour support for its residents, including dementia care. To be managed by Registered Housing provider Wales & West Housing.

Site activity to date has included demolition and clearing of the site and piling and foundation works are now underway.

This is the second extra care housing development in Flintshire for Anwyl and Wales & West Housing. In 2013, Llys Jasmine extra care development was completed providing state-of-the-art supported accommodation to help older people with care and support needs to live independently for as long as they possibly can.

Councillor Christine Jones, Flintshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Social Services said:

This is another great step forward for our latest extra care scheme in Flintshire. With the Council working in partnership together with Wales & West Housing Association and Anwyl Construction, we are all looking forward to seeing this scheme come to fruition. The new facility in Holywell will provide excellent facilities to make a real difference to residents’ lives.

The Holywell Extra Care Development has been secured in partnership with Procure Plus. We have a dedicated team working with the community board at Procure Plus to agree and ensure many positive outcomes for the community surrounding the development.

As part of this partnership, our project team will be targeting local businesses for appointment on our supply chain.

I addition, our corporate commitment to recycling has seen mobile machines brought on to site to crush the brick, hardcore and concrete from the old school so it can be recycled on-site to produce high quality aggregate and ensure a sustainable use of these waste materials.

Simon Rose, our Senior Build Manager said:

We fully appreciate the importance of recycling as much as possible and we are fully committed to making the most sustainable use of materials. The aggregate made from the materials of the old building are being re-used on site which also cuts down on the number of vehicles that would otherwise have had to carry waste away therefore improving our carbon footprint.
Our thoughtful, sustainable approach is aimed at reducing each project’s environmental impact so that we not only deliver excellence and innovation in construction, but also in social and environmental value.
