Decisions:

The report of the Head of Housing Services seeking the Executive’s approval to move forward with the development of 10 housing units on land near Pentraeth Industrial Estate was presented for consideration.

 

The Executive was advised that the site is located near Pentraeth Industrial Estate and full planning permission was approved in September, 2021 for 23 new houses as part of a development led by Clwyd Alyn Housing Association. Clwyd Alyn is one of three operational housing associations building affordable housing on the Island. The Authority where possible  seeks to work in partnership with other housing providers and in this case it has been offered 10 out of the 23 properties on site thereby providing an opportunity to offer some of the new properties for sale to local first time buyers through shared ownership and/or rent at intermediate rent. The houses will be built on sustainable principles and will be highly energy efficient. As part of the planning process, information provided by the developer showed that 37 applicants for housing in Pentraeth are on the Council’s waiting list and a further 7 are on the Tai Teg affordable housing list. These properties, ten of which will be in the Council’s name will contribute towards meeting the housing demand in the area. The development will be funded partly through a Welsh Government grant and partly through the Housing Revenue Account. The financial model adopted by the Authority to assess the financial viability of housing development schemes shows the scheme and associated costs to be viable and compliant with the Authority’s guidance on developing new housing. 

 

It was resolved to approve proceeding to develop new council housing of 10 units on land near Pentraeth Industrial Estate.
