Anwyl Partnerships kickstart work at abandoned site in Cefn Mawr


Anwyl Partnerships has begun work at the Cefn Mawr site in Wrexham as part of a housing project for Wales & West Housing.

The long-awaited development includes 34 new affordable homes for rent including two and three-bed houses, as well as two one and two-bed bungalows. The site had been left in state of decay for almost 15 years having been abandoned by a previous developer . The site had grown to become a ‘blight on the community’ and a target for anti-social behaviour.

“It’s fantastic to see this project underway. It is an important site in terms of its location that not only represents an important regeneration ‘kick-starter’ but will create much needed additional housing stock within Wrexham.

“Initial site clearance works are now underway and with a programme of 15 months, we will be completing and handing over the project in November 2022.

“We continue to work closely with Wales & West Housing, building homes and community throughout North Wales and are pleased to be working with them once again at this great scheme.”

Mike Nevitt, Managing Director of Anwyl Partnerships commented.

“There is a continued shortage of high quality affordable homes in the Wrexham area and we are pleased that our new homes at Wrenbury Court will help alleviate this. Once completed, the development will revitalise the site and provide a secure, safe place to live for individuals and families.

“Wales & West Housing is continuing with its ambitious development programme throughout 2022 and the homes at Wrenbury Court will be among many we handover to new residents during the year.”

Gary Cook, Regional Development Manager for Wales & West Housing in North Wales, said.
