Glan y Morfa’s looking good
Flintshire County Council has partnered with a number of building contractors
to help complete the upgrade work needed on our housing stock.
The contractors are working on the Welsh Housing Quality Standard (WHQS) which
is a national standard of quality for homes set by the Welsh Government and
this work gives employment and apprenticeship opportunities to local people.
Not only that, but our contractors have been active in helping local
communities in various ways.
Repairs and maintenance provider, Wates Living Space, has been working on
improvement works at Glan y Morfa Court in Connah’s Quay. They also spent time
on a makeover for a covered walkway and the community garden and provided
plants and a new bench so that the residents can sit and enjoy the garden.
Flintshire County Council Cabinet Member for Housing, Councillor Bernie
“The standard of the work carried out is really good and I’d like to thank
Flintshire’s Clerk of Works, Peter Bates, and our contractors Wates Living
Space – their partnership working and commitment to our local communities
really is appreciated and I’m sure residents will be very pleased with their
David Morgan, Managing Director, Wates Living Space, commented:
“Flintshire County Council is really setting the standard for the improvement
of local homes, and it’s very rewarding to witness the positive impact it is
having on the local community.
“Since we began working with Flintshire, we have been committed to identifying
ways that we can positively impact the county. Our work at the community garden
in Connah’s Quay is a great example of the positive legacy we want to leave as
part of our work in Flintshire. We hope the garden is a source of enjoyment for
many years to come.”
