“Together with WWH, we have insisted that the sub-contractors we used took on apprentices from the area and developed local supply chains because it is vital that major developments like this involve, invest in and benefit the local economy and community. We’re delighted to have completed their 3000th home in North Wales for them and look forward to building many more in the future.”
Shayne Hembrow, Deputy Chief Executive and Commercial Director for WWH, said:
“This is an important milestone as our ambition is for everyone to have a home that they can be proud of, in a place they want to live. Our plan for the next five years includes investing £250 million, delivering 1000 energy efficient new homes across Wales and investing in our existing properties. This will create more jobs and work opportunities and bring a substantial economic boost to local communities and businesses.”
