Reason 2

A local success story

You’d be amazed at some of the things we’ve achieved. We’ve won awards of all types of things from affordability to excellence and housing to heritage. And since we first started we’ve amassed 822 granted planning permissions, built 174 new homes and improved a further 331 buildings. But perhaps we’re proudest of what we do locally – developing better communities and positive experiences for people that need it most – with the completion of over 250 affordable homes across Mid Wales.
