Glanrafon Regeneration Update
Over the last couple of years we have been looking at Glanrafon from a long term financial view and listening to the views of tenants that live there. So using our housing expertise we did some research to find out what type of housing we need for Glanrafon.
This helped us reach a decision, with tenants to:
Demolish the main block of maisonettes.
Keep the other five blocks of flats.
We will be spending over £1.5M on:
- Giving the flats a brand new modern look
- Adding render and insulation to the outside walls
- Closing in the flights of stairs and adding a secure door entry system
- Renewing roofs
- Changing the design of the windows
- Making better use of shared outside space
- Upgrade and improve the existing children’s play space which is at the heart of the site
- Demolish the existing flats numbers 1 to 30 and replace with a mix of family homes
These homes will be built using a ground-breaking modular build construction method. The design provides high quality houses that are flexible and fast to build.
The homes will be built with:
- the highest levels of technical performance
- low running costs
- a healthy, comfortable living environment
- superior levels of sound and fire protection
We thank tenants for talking to us about the improvements. We shared what you told us with our architects and this helped them with their design plans.
Re-developing the maisonettes block
We have planning approval to demolish the maisonettes block and build 12 new family homes. The development will include a mix of 3 and 4 bedroom family homes with gardens and off road car parking space. There has been a delay on starting the new development because of the COVID-19 lockdown. We will let tenants and residents know all the information on demolishing the block, the timetable for building the new development and what to expect during this time.
We’ll keep you up to date through the development by writing to you, putting up posters, holding events, having the information on our website and let you know ways to contact us.
Making better use of shared outside space
Come out to play and tell us your thoughts and ideas for the new play space at Glanrafon. Following on from our consultation packs we want to hear from you in person.
We want to make this green space welcoming, fun and creative.
But how this looks and what we do here depends on you.
You can make this area the envy of the county.
So come out and tell us your thoughts and ideas on:
Thursday 9th July 2-4pm
We will be set up by the bridge on the footpath at Glanrafon
Please keep the safe 2 metres away from us and others.
Also, meet Lynda Johnson at her first outdoor housing surgery. She’s there to talk to tenants and residents about Glanrafon.
If you can’t come out and see us but want to know more, or tell us your ideas, you can call or text Matt on 07919 568669.
