A £4.6m project to renovate and redevelop housing in Rhyl will receive more than £900,000 Welsh Government regeneration investment and the first phase will create 32 affordable homes.
Deputy Housing and Local Government Minister Hannah Blythyn announced the Targeted Regeneration Investment funding for the project, being delivered by Denbighshire County Council with Pennaf Housing Group.
The first phase of the project will involve:
- the renovation of a property on Crescent Road into three affordable housing apartments for the over 55s
- two properties at on Water Street will be renovated to create six affordable housing apartments
- eight properties on Aquarium street will be renovated to create homes available under the Low Cost Home Ownership scheme
- a site on John Street will be redeveloped to create 15 accessible apartments suitable for older residents.
Cllr Tony Thomas, Denbighshire’s lead member for Housing, Regulation and the Environment, said:
“This funding will enable the Council and Pennaf to undertake further improvements to housing in the West Rhyl Regeneration Area and build on the success of the earlier property acquisition programme undertaken by the Council and the investment in new homes which was recently recognised as the best regeneration project of its size in the UK-wide Inside Housing awards. It will also contribute towards the delivery our Corporate Plan priority to provide affordable homes in the county.”
