New homes being built on old Kwik Save site
HOUSING association Cartrefi Cymunedol Gwynedd (CCG), has started two £1.8m homes projects in Bangor – including developing a former Kwik Save site.
The schemes include eight flats at Trem Elidir and nine flats at the former supermarket site at the bottom of the high street in Hirael.
North Wales-based Gareth Morris Construction (GMC) are building the flats on behalf of CCG with local Caernarfon-based Wakemans appointed as employer’s agent on the high street scheme. It is anticipated that the flats will be completed by summer 2020.
Assistant Director of Assets Daniel Parry said: “We are very proud to be working with Gareth Morris Construction on these developments.
“With approximately 1,800 applicants on the waiting list for affordable housing in Bangor, it is important for us to be playing our part in meeting the demand for housing and providing people with efficient, modern and comfortable homes in the communities they want to live.
“We have already invested £1.5million in substantial regeneration work at Hirael, and built homes at Maesgeirchen, Tan y Bryn and Porth Penrhyn.
“Over the next seven years, we are aiming to build 800 new homes across north Wales, and Bangor is an area which will benefit from more new homes as we aim to achieve this target.”
