Plan to build 170 new council houses in Denbighshire approved
Scores of new council houses are to be built in Denbighshire as part of a commitment to provide affordable homes.
Denbighshire County Council is embarking on an ambitious programme to ensure access to good quality housing by building 170 council houses over the next five years, as part of its new set of corporate priorities which were approved at a Full Council meeting on October 17 at County Hall, Ruthin.
It will complement the ongoing improvement work to the Council’s existing housing stock.
Denbighshire Housing’s five-year programme focuses on creating more homes to meet local need and demand.
Jamie Groves, the Council’s Head of Facilities, Assets and Housing, said: “Denbighshire is rising to the challenge for the need for more affordable housing by utilising new freedoms granted to local authorities by building 170 new council houses over the next five years. We will be ensuring that sufficient suitable homes are provided to meet local need and demand. Our strategy is for residents to be able to live in homes that meet their needs, within vibrant and sustainable communities throughout the county.
Preparing Winter Colour
Councillor Colin Hardie, Mayor of St. Asaph and members of the City Council, cleaned out the flower towers sited on the corner of High Street and Mount Road, and on the corner of Lower Street, and replanted them with an array of winter flowering pansies to provide some attractive seasonal colour. The plants have also been interspersed with spring flowering bulbs to welcome the new season and add interest to the displays.
