WORK has started on two new housing developments located just a few miles from one another.

The sites are Cysgod Y Graig in Dyserth and Parc Tirionfa in Rhuddlan.

When fully developed, Cysgod Y Graig will feature 61 homes ranging from two to four bedrooms all at two-storeys high. Six of the properties will be affordable housing.

At Parc Tirionfa, there will be 48 new homes, five of which will be affordable, also ranging between two and four bedrooms.

Both sites are being delivered by St Asaph-based Macbryde Homes.

Before the spades have hit the ground, the company say demand for the new homes has been high; more the 200 enquiries have already been received.

Gwyn Jones, managing director at Macbryde Homes, said: "The fact that both sites had already been earmarked for residential development, suggests that an acknowledgement existed of the need for quality, affordable family housing in the area. However, what is planned for and strategised is only really meaningful when that translates through in to action. That has most certainly been the case in these two examples.

"Before we’ve even moved in on site, over 200 enquiries have been received from interested purchasers.

"Interestingly, these are wide ranging enquiries that include local first-time buyers, young professionals, growing families and older couples alike. Both sites are proving equally popular and enquiries are being received for all house types.

"What this confirms is that quality new homes are desperately needed across this part of North Wales for local people and so we’re delighted to now be moving forward with these two developments.”

Macbryde Homes confirmed its planned for new homes in Dyserth in November 2018. In March 2018, planning was granted at the site in Rhuddlan which Macbryde had acquired just weeks beforehand.

Sales at both sites are due to launch later this summer.
