GWYNEDD Council has submitted plans to develop 10 affordable homes for intermediate rent on the former site of Ysgol Babanod Coed Mawr, Bangor – the first houses to be built by the council for 30 years.

As the planning application enters its consultation period, residents can view and submit comments on the plan on the council’s planning website,, using the reference C22/0525/11/LL.

Cllr Craig ab Iago, cabinet member with responsibility for housing and property, said: “Ensuring that homes are available for local people is acutely important and is of key importance to our Housing Action Plan.

“So, I’m extremely pleased that the Tŷ Gwynedd project at Coed Mawr is moving ahead.

“I would urge anyone who is interested in what the project offers visit the Tai Teg website at to see if they’re eligible to register with Tai Teg for affordable housing.

“There is also more information about similar plans on the website.”

This development, the first of its kind under the Tŷ Gwynedd banner, will give people opportunities to live in the region – which is one of the main objectives of the council’s Housing Action Plan.

All Tŷ Gwynedd homes built by the council will follow five core principles: affordable, adaptable, sustainable, energy efficient, and promoting the wellbeing of residents.

Plans for the Coed Mawr site will include six three-bedroom houses and four two-bedroom houses.

The two-bedroom houses will be available on intermediate rent, which will provide more opportunities for those not eligible for social housing, but are not able to afford or rent on the open market either.

The plans in Bangor are the first under the Tŷ Gwynedd plans, and the council is currently looking at other sites across the county, specifically in Dwyfor and Meirionnydd, for the next Tŷ Gwynedd developments.
