A local father and his two daughters have settled into a new affordable home in Wrexham, provided by social landlord Adra.
Single parent Wayne Edwards moved into Llay with his two young daughters last month, enabling him to live closer to his family, with his mother from Llay and his father from Cefn-Y-Bedd in Flintshire.
Adra’s family homes form part of the major mixed-tenure development in Llay, on the outskirts of Wrexham, built with partners Bellway Homes and Anwyl Homes.
‘Safe and secure’
Speaking of his new home, 44-year-old Wayne Edwards said: “Adra has provided us with a place we can make our home, and we feel safe and secure.
“The estate we have moved onto is very well designed and provides diversity to our lives through a mixed demographic.
“Adra have been extremely supportive through the whole process of applying, moving, and settling in.”
Elin Owen, Affordable Homes Officer at Adra, added: “It’s extremely rewarding to see people move into their new homes and being part of that process.
“We have a range of options available for people looking to move to these new affordable and comfortable homes in Llay, Wrexham.
“We have homes available under a scheme called Shared Ownership where customers can part-buy and part-rent their new home, with a minimum equity of 25% to a maximum of 75%.
“Customers can get their foot on the housing ladder and increase their share of the ownership at any time based on sustainable repayment plans. A monthly rent is then based on the share not purchased.”
Adra owns and manages a range of affordable two- and three-bedroom new family homes, which are available for shared ownership scheme or by intermediate rent.
