Wales & West Utilities is urging residents in Llanfair Dyffryn Clwyd who want to be connected to the mains gas network to come forward.

The gas emergency and pipeline service is working to lay gas pipes to feed a new housing estate in the area and has identified an opportunity for homes in the village to connect to mains gas for the first time.

Wales & West Utilities is now urging local people to get in contact to understand the work required to connect to the gas network and the associated costs, while also giving them the opportunity to gather information on the many benefits, including substantial cost savings, of being connected to the mains network.

By connecting their home to the mains gas network, residents can save hundreds of pounds on their household bills.

Due to the way we’re funded, to extend the gas network we have to make sure that a high proportion of the local community is interested in connecting – so we’d urge people to get in touch. We’ll be able to let them know the benefits of connecting to the mains gas network – as well as the ways we could help them meet the cost.

We’re asking everyone interested in connecting to mains gas to please complete the required form within 28 days and return it to us.
