Council tenants are being invited to view proposals for improvement work due to be carried out to their homes.

We’re currently modernising hundreds of homes on the Plas Madoc estate to ensure they meet the Welsh Government’s Welsh Housing Quality Standard.

The improvements include re-roofing and installing External Wall Insulation.

The insulation is designed to help keep the houses warmer, improve their appearance and extend the lifespan of the buildings.

The first phase of the work is now well underway in the Bodlyn, Bran, Aled, and Idwal areas of the estate. Some properties in Idwal have already been completed (see photo).

The second phase is due to start soon and will cover homes in the Alwen, Dinas, Glaslyn, Gwynant and Peris areas.

Big plans for the estate…

The information event will be a chance for tenants to come and view the design plans for their homes. Housing Officers will be on hand to answer any queries about the work.

There will also be a chance to view some initial proposals/plans for new-build properties we are planning to build on the estate.

More improvements on the way

In February, the Council’s Executive Board approved a £50.3m investment for housing improvement work to continue in 2018/19.

This includes a Major Repairs Allowance grant, which the Welsh Government awards to local authorities to help them achieve the Welsh Housing Quality Standard.

Lead Member for Housing, Cllr David Griffiths, said: “We have committed to this huge investment to help us continue improvement work across the County Borough over the next 12 months. Our aim is to ensure that all our tenants homes meet the Welsh Housing Quality Standard by 2020 and I’m pleased to say we are well on track to achieve this.”

The information event will be held at the Aqua Lounge, Plas Madoc Leisure Centre, 11 April, from 2pm-6pm.

It’s a drop-in event and anyone is welcome to attend.
