New year, new facelift for 100 new council houses

The start of 2018 will make an exciting chapter for 100 council homes in Llangollen, Ruthin and Rhyl as a major improvements programme is due to get underway.

The work to improve the homes includes roofing, replacement windows, doors and fascias, together with widespread refurbishment of brickwork and rendering. Residents can stay in their properties whilst the work takes place, to avoid any inconvenience.

The Council has commissioned Torus Property Solutions to carry out the works.

Councillor Tony Thomas, Cabinet Lead Member for Housing, Regulation and the Environment, said: “This is an exciting time for residents in these properties as they will benefit from the work

“This project is one part of a much wider programme of investment in our properties across the county.  We want our residents to live in high quality and safe accommodation which is also better insulated and we firmly believe that investing in the properties will improve the quality of life for individuals and families.

“We look forward to seeing the work progress in the New Year and I’m sure that the residents will be delighted with the end result”.

Torus Property Solutions director, Wayne Booth, said: “We are thrilled to have won this significant work for Denbighshire County Council and can’t wait to get started.

 

“Work like this doesn’t just transform homes, it helps revitalise estates and improve the wellbeing of residents. We’re proud to be a part of it.”

 

Work on the mix of flats, detached and semi-detached homes, terraced houses and bungalows is expected to begin on January 8th.
