Countryside breaks ground on first North Wales scheme

Housebuilder Countryside has commenced construction on 283 homes on the site of the former RAF Sealand South Camp in Deeside.

The 18-acre site, called Dutton Fields, was granted planning permission by Flintshire Council in June. The homes will range from three to four bedrooms and will be located on Welsh Road.

There will be 28 homes earmarked as affordable and 99 available for private rent through Sigma Capital. There will be 156 homes for open market sale which will be available through the help to buy scheme.

This will mark Countryside’s first foray into the North Wales housing market. There is no definitive end date on the development as yet.

Nexus was the scheme’s planning consultant.

Mark Hadfield, regional managing director for Countryside, said: “Dutton Fields is a particularly strategic development for Countryside. It will see our business expand into North Wales with the ultimate objective of providing high quality and affordable homes for Flintshire.

“The development of RAF Sealand is a long-anticipated project and we are very proud to be taking it forward. Throughout our time on site we will work with the local community to create on-site training and employment.”
