Castle Green unveils 315 home vision for Ewloe

A consultation has begun on the developer’s plans for a 24.7-acre site off Holywell Road and Green Lane in the Flintshire village.

Of the proposed homes, 126 would be classed as affordable, equating to 40% of the scheme, according to documents prepared by Castle Green Homes as part of the public consultation.

Access to the consultation documents can be found at Castle Green’s website, where comments on the plans can also be submitted.

The consultation runs until 8 April.

The land is currently in agricultural use but is earmarked for housing in Flintshire County Council’s local development plan.

A local housing market assessment produced by the county council and included in Castle Green’s pre-consultation documents points to a shortfall of affordable homes in the Mold and Buckley area of the county.

According to the plans, the housing mix will range from flats to terraced, semi-detached, and detached properties. These homes will vary in size from one to four-bedrooms.

Of the 24.7 acre site, 5.6 acres has been designated for public open space, an equipped play area, and access to the development.

As part of the access and road layout work, pedestrian footways would be provided from Holywell Road and Green Lane to join up with the current footpath network.

The developer says the scheme would include energy efficient heating systems, insulated flooring and new areas of tree planting.

Castle Green also says an agreement will be reached with the council on a range of financial contributions to support improvement to nearby facilities and infrastructure, with a view to mitigating the impact of the development.

On the project team, SCP has carried out a transport assessment, and Ascerta has put together arboricultural and ecological assessments.

TPM Landscape is the landscape architect, and Coopers is the civil engineer.

The developer has prepared a design and access statement, with a view to submitting an application to the county council post-consultation.

Lets hope its better than their development in Warrington which has the worst quality lanscaping I’ve ever seen on a new build estate – rubble and clay filled planting areas with a half-hearted skim of mulch, most of the planned tree planting did not appear, trees that were planted then removed, proposed lanscaped areas instead just seeded orhalf finished, its horrendous and very sad to see.
