A terrace of derelict properties in Ruthin are set to undergo a major refurbishment programme, creating six new homes for local people.
North Wales Housing has purchased the properties, set in a prominent position onMwrog Streetin Ruthin, as part of the Denbighshire Empty Homes Project. All of the houses have been unoccupied since 2000 when they were damaged during floods and tenants were relocated.
Under the refurbishment programme, North Wales Housing are set to create two family houses and two flats with parking. The remaining land to the rear will be used to develop two additional bungalows.
Work is expected to begin during the summer and will take around nine months until completion.
Phil Danson of North Wales Housing said: “Mwrog Streetforms part of the roll out of our Empty Homes initiative that involves a partnership with Denbighshire County Council to identify empty properties suitable for affordable housing. We can consider their potential for redevelopment tied in with the housing needs within that particular area.
“Mwrog Streetis an excellent example of the type of property we target - sitting in a prominent location, falling into disrepair but with huge scope for improvement. We are set to appoint a contractor in the coming weeks whilst our housing team will begin finding potential tenants these new homes.”
