WREXHAM's windows and doors replacement programme continues to progress despite budget challenges.

Wrexham Council says it remains committed to its 10 year windows and doors replacement programme which improves the thermal efficiency and security of its properties.

It also supports the council’s ongoing commitment to provide homes that meet the new 'Welsh Housing Quality Standard' and also contributes towards decarbonising its housing stock.

The programme is subject to funding and all of the investment programmes in Housing are under the same budget pressures.

The programme is being delivered by concentrating on the age of the existing windows and doors from its asset management system.

During the first phase of the programme, the council completed over 400 properties across Wrexham and the surrounding villages of Holt, Penley, Overton, Bettisfield, Bangor on Dee, Gwersyllt, Cefn y Bedd, Cefn Mawr and Pentre Maelor.

Further areas are included during the second phase of the programme, which is due to commence and run during the 2024-25 financial year.


As part of the council's mission to lower carbon footprint, the existing windows and doors that are removed are being recycled in a recycling plant and processed into resin so that they can be reused for other items.

Councillor David A Bithell, lead member for housing said: “We are committed to continuing to provide high quality windows and doors via our 10 year programme, this will be subject to available funding.

“Our second phase is due to commence in the next approaching financial year, and we look forward to updating you further on our progress."
