As a social landlord, Melin not only provides properties for rent – we also build homes to rent or buy through our low-cost ownership scheme, and provide housing for people over the age of 55. Melin was founded in 2007, and from its offices in Pontypool manages over 3500 properties throughout Torfaen, Blaenau Gwent, Newport, Monmouthshire and Powys. However, we are not just about bricks and mortar – Melin aims to engage with and provide opportunities for all of its residents and communities.
