Work is starting on a £3.3m project to build a new block of 33 apartments for people over 55 years of age in the centre of Flint.

Builders Anwyl Construction will work on the site of the former Delyn council offices in the town.

The project is due to be completed by February 2015.

The four-storey building is for social housing provider Wales and West Housing in partnership with Flintshire council.

Anwyl Construction recently completed an £8.5m 61-home care complex in Mold.

It is also working on another £15m project to provide 147 homes on two sites in Wrexham.

Helen Brown, Flintshire council's cabinet member for housing, said the council was committed to providing affordable housing throughout the area.
