Castle Green bags 113-home approval in North Wales

Denbighshire Council also approved 40 homes in Llandyrnog, along with coastal defence works in Rhyl.

Advised by Grimster Planning, Castle Green Homes intends to build 113 homes off Upper Denbigh Road, St Asaph.

The professional team also includes Ascerta, SCP, Coopers Consulting Engineers, CES Ecology and Clwyd Powys Archaeological Trust.

The site is allocated for housing in the local development plan and represents the second plot within a local allocation.

Pure Residential is currently amid development on the first plot, also known as the HM Stanley hospital site, where it is building 45 homes and a 75-capacity assisted living development. Both sites are close to St Kentigern Hospice and palliative care centre, and an ambulance headquarters.

Despite its allocated status, the scheme attracted an objection from St Asaph City Council, raising concerns over both access to and from the A525 and a preference to see brownfield sites built out as a priority.

As to the mix of housing for a proposal already shrunk from an original plan for 124 homes, just under a quarter will be two-bedroom, with the remainder split equally between three and four bedrooms. Eleven homes will be affordable, meeting the 10% requirement in the area.

Castle Green’s plans also provide for two acres of space newly open to the public, and work on mature woodland. Financial contributions totalling around £250,000 have been agreed.

Denbighshire County Council’s planning meeting, held on Wednesday, also approved plans from Pen Palmant for 40 homes on land adjacent to Maes Llan Llandyrnog.

Objectors included the Llandyrnog Community Council, but as with the Castle Green proposal, there was no division at committee, with both schemes being granted approval comfortably.

This was also the case for a pair of coastal defence works applications. The first, covering 12.3 acres of land at Rhyl Golf Club covers the formation of flood embankments, ramps, outfall structures and rock armour as part of the Central Prestatyn Coastal Defence Scheme.

The second, covering central Rhyl, covers some new sea wall, along with repair and engineering works to existing sea walls, along with the raising and widening of the promenade including improved access.
