This year, Merthyr Tydfil Housing Association will be celebrating its 40th Anniversary. There will be lots of events happening to celebrate, so keep an eye on our website for an update of what is going on. Here is a taste of what will be happening:
A little bit of history for those of you who can’t quite remember 40 years ago……
Merthyr Tydfil Housing Association was established in 1977 as a non-profit making Industrial and Provident Society with non-charitable rules (which were changed to charitable based rules in 1998). Initially the Association worked in the specific areas of Dowlais, Aberfan, Troedyrhiw and Cefn Coed. The work of the Association gradually spread to encompass the whole of the local authority borough of Merthyr Tydfil.
By March 1989 the Association had 513 units in management and through targeted acquisitions and rehabilitation had considerably improved the fabric of communities such as Dowlais.
We are continuing to develop new properties and also recognise the need to bring disused building back into use such as the Old Town Hall – Redhouse.
For more information on any of the above events, please contact the Association.
