A housing group has opened a new development which was delayed after the collapse of a building firm. Adra had employed RL Davies (Construction) as the main contractor for the development of the 28 flat Frondeg site in Pwllheli but the firm went into administration in February.

The group quickly appointed OBR, based in Llangefni, who moved onto the site April. It has now been completed and will meet the needs of residents over the age of 55 and those with disabilities.

This development is part of a partnership between Cyngor Gwynedd and Adra as part of Gwynedd’s Affordable Housing Development Programme and funded by the Welsh Government through Cyngor Gwynedd’s Social Housing Grant. It contributes to the Council’s goal of constructing 700 social houses by 2026/27.

Daniel Parry, Director of Development at Adra, said: “We appreciate the patience and understanding from the residents whilst the work was being completed after a delay. We have ensured that these are quality homes that the residents can be proud of.”

Councillor Craig ab Iago, Cyngor Gwynedd Cabinet Member for Housing and Property, said: “‘It's fantastic to see that this development is ready to open its doors to new residents. Providing high-quality, affordable, and modern homes in this area, and elsewhere in Gwynedd, is of the highest priority and the council’s partnership with local housing associations, including Adra, demonstrates our shared dedication to tackling the urgent housing needs in this county.

‘’There is more to this milestone than just the opening of a new housing development; it is a commitment to creating a resilient and inclusive community for the well-being of both the future residents of Frondeg, and the wider community in Pwllheli and I'm looking forward to watching this site evolve into long term homes for the people of Gwynedd.’’
