Information


The new Maes Helyg development in Garden City, Deeside, is an affordable homes development consisting of 6 one-bedroom and 15 two-bedroom apartments which was completed in time to house local people for Christmas 2017. The development was funded by Pennaf Housing Group and supported by the Welsh Government Social Housing Grant.

The £2.4m affordable housing development, has been named as Flintshire’s Best Social Housing / Affordable Housing Project in the prestigious Local Authority Building Control Awards (LABC).

Flintshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing, Councillor Bernie Attridge, said:

“The new homes in Maes Helyg are part of the Council’s commitment to investing in affordable housing options across the County. This is an excellent example of working in partnership to increase affordable homes for local people”

 

Through our partnership with the Prince’s Trust, work experience opportunities were provided on site, supporting and helping young people get into the construction industry.

We were also involved with some local charity efforts along with Pennaf Housing and Clwyd Alan Housing Association’s O.D.E.L training programme working with the residents to raise money for the NSPCC.

Anwyl Construction Site Manager Dave Bradley added:

“I joined Anwyl as an apprentice joiner and they’ve always been very keen to help me and other colleagues to develop by putting us through courses and as a result there are a number of us like me who began as apprentices who have climbed the ladder and made careers with them.”
