Wales new homes round-up – the best new build property on sale now
Posted 12 February 2016 by Keith Osborne
The Welsh government has announced a £20m investment into social housing that is set to build 230 affordable homes and create up to 500 jobs.
Finance and government business minister Jane Hutt will spread the funding across 22 local authorities in an announcement made as she visited Llys Santes Ann in Grosvenor Road, Wrexham, an extra care housing project of 60 units which has benefited from £693,000 from the grant.
“I have been delighted to see how Welsh government funding is making a real difference here in Wrexham,” said Hutt. “Extra Care facilities provide an important opportunity for older people to live independently in their own home safe in the knowledge support is on hand when required and the scheme on Grosvenor Road will offer exactly that.
“The need for good quality affordable accommodation is vital to progress the Tackling Poverty Action plan and Welsh government investment, including the additional £20m for the Social Housing Grant I have announced, is playing a key role in ensuring developments such as these become a reality.”
