Visit to Housing Development in Welshpool

Eluned Morgan AM was pleased to join members Mid-Wales Housing Association and Pickstock Homes Ltd, on a visit to one of their new housing projects in Welshpool.

The development of 54 homes of 2, 3 and 4 bedroomed properties at at Clos Gungrog and Bron Gungrog include 9 two bedroomed bungalows is located at an attractive position between the canal and open countryside.

The homes are being developed with Pickstock Homes Ltd., a trusted development partner, and with significant financial assistance from the Welsh Labour Government.  All properties will have private gardens and will be built to the most modern standards of thermal and energy performance. 

An exciting part of this project is that 14 of the 54 homes will be available to buy under the Welsh Government’s ‘Rent to Own’ programme. This is specifically aimed at people who would like to buy their own home but have struggled to save enough to do so by helping them to take the first step onto the property ownership ladder.

Commenting on the visit, Eluned said:

“The Welsh Government knows how tough it is for people to get their foot onto the property ladder and we are committed to giving support where it matters.

“We’re delivering on our commitment to build more, and better, homes for the people of Wales and leading the way in developing new co-operative and mutual solutions to housing needs – making more and more properties available for rent and part-ownership across both urban and rural parts of Wales, through a wide range of innovative, support programmes.

The Welsh Labour Government believes that everyone has the right to a safe, secure, good quality home, and that’s what we’re going to fight to deliver.”

The development programme is anticipated to take just over two years to complete with the first stage of the development expected to approach completion towards the end of 2019.
