New Council energy efficient apartments in Prestatyn have welcomed their first residents.
The keys have been handed over to two of the four one-bedroom new apartments located at the site of the former Bodnant School, canteen at Caradoc Road.
Denbighshire Housing’s new low carbon apartments are all certified to the energy-efficient Passive House Standard. Construction was carried out by North Wales based Peter T Griffiths Building Contractors and was part funded by the Welsh Government through its Innovative Housing Programme.

These new homes are part of Denbighshire County Council’s commitment to tackling waiting times for accommodation by addressing the need for more local housing provision.
Following moving in, a tenant of one of the new apartments said:
” I love my passive house it’s definitely the way of the future and I feel that anyone would be blessed to have a home like this.”
Cllr Rhys Thomas, Lead Member for Housing and Communities at Denbighshire County Council said:
“We are delighted to welcome the first residents into these new apartments at Prestatyn and wish them all well in their new homes. The Council is also very grateful for all the support of our partners who have helped make this site possible on Caradoc Road.
