Penyffordd Groups Invited to Apply for Redrow Cash

Redrow have contacted the Community Council and requested that this information is shared with their community.

The deadline to apply is Oct 31, 2018.

COMMUNITY projects in and around Penyffordd in North East Wales have a chance to share £10,000 of funding from Redrow.

 Ahead of launching its new Millstone View development, off Chester Road, the homebuilder is now inviting applications for funding from local charities, community groups and other good causes.

 Redrow wants to offer support to as many local groups, organisations and individuals as possible and will share out the £10,000 budget accordingly.

 “A greater number of smaller applications will be favoured over large individual requests,” Jason Newton, sales director for Redrow Homes (NW), explained.

 Redrow’s ethos is to create and support communities as well as build new homes and its developments generally come with a package of community benefits attached to them via planning, such as contributions to education, healthcare, public transport and road improvements.

 “However, we also like to play a role in supporting communities at grass roots level and ensuring we make a positive contribution locally. Our community funds are a great way to do this,” Jason continued.

 “In other areas we have supported a wide range of things from toddlers play groups to knit and natter groups for pensioners; from sponsoring sports teams to providing circus trips for under-privileged children; and from paying for afternoon tea for carers to funding a monument to commemorate one of the suffragettes.

 “We’ve been really surprised – and thrilled – by the variety of applications and we’re really looking forward to hearing how people in Penyffordd, Penymynydd and the surrounding villages think we can help.”

Redrow’s new Millstone View development is due to launch in spring 2019 and has planning consent for 186 two, three and four-bedroom homes, including 27 affordable properties within the development and a contribution of £450,000 towards affordable housing elsewhere.

 Redrow will also contribute over £930,000 towards local education, which will benefit Penyffordd Primary School and Castell Alun High School. In addition, the developer will provide and manage greenspace areas and contribute to highways improvements in the area.

 Millstone View is adjacent to a previous Redrow development, Heritage Park, in Penymynydd. As well as 85 new homes, the completed development created the new White Lion Nature Reserve, whose ponds, wildflower meadows and walkways were cultivated by Redrow and are now managed and run by national wildlife charity, the Amphibian and Reptile Conservation (ARC) Trust.  

 Anyone wishing to register their interest in the latest homes at Millstone View can do so via the website or by calling 01244 432832.

 Those wishing to nominate a project for Redrow to consider supporting should email to request an application form stating ‘Penyffordd Community Fund’ in the subject line. The deadline for completed applications is October 31.
