In the past few years the dilapidated boarding houses in West Parade have been giving way to new blocks of flats. Some of the blocks are under private ownership, although they are not really upmarket places – there is no demand for pricey accommodation around here.
Local people have not created a demand for flats at all; our younger couples in particular want and need houses – preferably with a bit of a garden for kids to play in.
The three blocks in West Parade shown above have been built by Clwyd Alyn Housing Association for elderly tenants. In the order that they were created they are: Hafan Dirion (TOP), Swn Y Mor (MIDDLE) and Gorwel Newydd.
