The report of the Head of Housing Services outlining a proposal to build 43 new homes on the former Parch. Thomas Ellis School site in Holyhead was presented for the Executive’s consideration. Should the scheme be approved, the new dwellings would be offered as social rent and immediate rent properties to applicants on both the Council’s waiting list and the Tai Teg waiting list.
The Executive was advised of the details of the scheme as regards the type, size and energy efficiency credentials of the proposed dwellings with the report confirming the need in the Holyhead area for the type of housing proposed, Holyhead being the area with the highest demand for social housing on the Island. It was emphasised that during this unprecedented economic period, the Executive’s approval is being sought on the basis of the existing need for the type of units described in the report and not the costs as set out. Should the scheme be approved by the Executive and by the Planning and Orders Committee, the intention is that work on the scheme should start towards the end of summer, 2023.
It was resolved subject to the receipt of planning approval, to approve moving forward to develop a scheme of 43 new homes in response to the local housing challenge, which will be available to local residents as affordable homes to buy or rent on the former Parch. Thomas Ellis school site, Holyhead.
