Delivering affordable housing

It's an important planning committee meeting tonight at which councillors will be asked to support outline permission for 100% affordable housing on 11 sites throughout the borough. That comes on top of the sites approved last month.
Whitegate ward has two sites - one for two bungalows on Rubery Way, where there are already some pensioners' bungalows and the other on the northern car park by the entrance to Whitegate Industrial Estate. This will provide up to a dozen affordable homes and will hopefully meet some of the high demand for family homes in that part of the ward.
Both are part of the joint venture scheme between the council and the Welsh Assembly Government, which has kick started the affordable housing scheme through releasing the Bridge Street site in Wrecsam town centre.
