Approval for 90 homes in Mold amid housebuilder woe

An 8.3-acre site south of New Brighton Road contained within Flintshire’s Local Development Plan will be developed, despite applicant Stewart Milne Homes being in administration.

The scheme was approved at a meeting of Flintshire County Council’s planning committee, during which it was said that administrators were keen to proceed with the application as it would provide them with a valuable asset.

Lingfield Group is acting as the delivery partner on behalf of the landowners who remain committed to progressing with the development.

The scheme provides a range of house types and sizes with mews-type, three-, four-, and five-bed dwellings mixed within the proposal. A total of 36 homes will be earmarked for affordable sale.

This application had previously been deferred by Flintshire last November amid concerns about safe routes to schools from the site, with access due to be from the New Brighton Road leading to nearby village Sychdyn. A pedestrian crossing is proposed as part of the scheme.

Some of the concerns remained but it was explained to councillors that developers are under no obligation to provide safe routes to school as part of their plans.

The project team includes Hourigan Planning, Sutcliffe, Ascerta, Brownfield Solutions, Ensafe, and SurveyEng.
