THE first phase of new affordable homes in Rhosrobin have been delivered under a deal between Castle Green Partnerships and North Wales Housing Association.

It’s the third housing association Castle Green has partnered with in North Wales as part of its commitment to providing affordable housing.

At Llys y Coed on Main Road, Rhosrobin, 47 affordable homes are being provided under a development agreement signed in January, as part of the Section 106 contributions agreed during the planning process.

Thirty of the homes are now complete. The first of those homes have now been handed over to NWHA and tenants will be moving into all of the completed homes in the next few weeks.

Contracts were exchanged last month on a deal for a further 14 homes, known as additionality units, six of which are now complete.

Eoin O’Donnell, partnerships director at Castle Green Partnerships, said: “Handing over homes under our partnership with North Wales Housing Association marks a key milestone in what we hope will be lasting and mutually beneficial relationship.

"Llys y Coed was among the schemes held up because of issues relating to phosphates, environmental targets and waste water, which meant a lack of new homes being built in the Wrexham area in recent years.

"This in turn has contributed to a deficit of much-needed affordable housing. The fact that North Wales Housing Association have purchased additional homes is an indicator of the high demand in the area for affordable homes.”

Castle Green Partnerships, part of St Asaph based Castle Green Homes, specialises in building homes for housing associations.

Lauren Eaton-Jones, assistant director of development at North Wales Housing Association, said: "We are delighted to have partnered with Castle Green to provide 61 homes in Rhosrobin, Wrexham, as part of our drive to provide more affordable homes in all six local authorities across North Wales.

"We are determined to make a difference for communities across North Wales, providing safe, well- maintained and affordable homes for our residents. Growth and development are extremely important in our vision.

"These houses are of the highest quality and will be homes that our residents will be proud to live in.

"We hope this is just the start of our partnership with Castle Green as we look to work together and deliver homes where they are needed the most."

The affordable homes in Rhosrobin are part of a wider 189 home development taking shape across a 39 acre site.

Work started on site in November 2023 and is expected to be complete by June 2025.


Half of the overall Llys y Coed development is preserved as open space, including the retention of ancient woodlands, for walks and bike trails.

Castle Green will fund improvements to Watts Dyke, a Scheduled Ancient Monument within the public open space, and provide a 400 square metre local equipped area of play, with seven pieces of play equipment.

To support the growth of the neighbourhood, Castle Green will make a £400,000 education contribution.
