Cartrefi Conwy are currently developing on the old Maelgwn school site in Llandudno Junction. We are working together with Conwy County Borough Council Housing Strategy and Social Services teams to provide much needed specialist accommodation and affordable housing for local people.

This £3 million housing scheme is helping to keep 70 existing jobs and creating six new ones, whilst breathing new life into the former primary school, Ysgol Maelgwn which closed its doors three years ago when the pupils moved to a new local super school, Ysgol Awel y Mynydd.

The development will include 27 homes in total with 13 specialist units for Conwy County Borough Council, 6 semi-detached homes, 6 apartments and 2 bungalows. It is being part-funded by a Social Housing Grant from the Welsh Government, and forms part of our strategy to create 400 new homes over the next four years.

It is the most complicated project Cartrefi Conwy have worked on to date because the old school which opened in 1907 is architecturally important, and many of the original features are being conserved, such as the main school building and detached classroom’s glazed tiling and vaulted timber ceilings. Much of the outside of the building will remain as well, benefitting from new Welsh slate roofs.

There will also be a brand new communal wellbeing garden, alongside  the main entrance to the building to help residents with mobility issues. A central tree will provide shade for the seating area, surrounded by a series of raised beds with plant selection including  edible herbs and flowering shrubs.


The development will open its doors with tenants moving in late 2020.
