New homes for Old Colwyn as planning given green light

New homes for Old Colwyn as planning given green light

Macbryde Homes has confirmed that work will start on a significant new housing development on Dolwen Road, Old Colwyn in the coming weeks. 

The approved plans outline how the 42-home development, to be called Parc Elian, will be a mix of two- and three-bedroom semi-detached homes and three- and four-bedroom detached properties.  It is anticipated that the homes will be particularly attractive to local first-time buyers, young professionals and growing families.  Twenty percent of the homes will be designated as affordable.

Significantly, the new development is expected to support 130 jobs in the local community (1), whilst an on-site equipped play area and improvements to off-site open public space will be financed by the developer.  A financial contribution has also been made towards improvements to the local highways network.

Simon Finlay, Head of Development at Macbryde Homes, comments:

“We are delighted to now announce a start date for our latest development in Old Colwyn.

“The mix of homes that Parc Elian will be comprised of, means that it should appeal to a significant number of local purchasers.  Our other developments across the region have been hugely popular with first-time buyers and young professionals so we appreciate the huge demand that continues to exist for these homes.”

The properties will all be two-stories high and have been designed to sit comfortably within the context of the local built environment.  Landscaping will be focused on a mix of ornamental plants and native species to encourage local wildlife to forage.

Enabling works will commence shortly, with a full site start anticipated in January.  An announcement on the sales launch will follow early in the New Year.
