Flintshire set to back 235 homes plan for Mold

Anwyl is behind the proposals to develop a site to the north of Gwernaffield in the town.

The plan is to develop 22 one-bed, 44 two-bed, 92 three-bed, and 77 four-bedroom properties on a 27 acre plot of agricultural land. Of these homes, 94 will be classed as affordable.

Flintshire County Council’s planning committee will determine the application when it meets on Wednesday, with officers recommending approval.

More than 50 objections have been raised to the scheme, with traffic concerns raised by town and community councils.

The site is allocated for development in Flintshire’s Local Development Plan, but councillors have been advised Welsh Government ministers have already received a request to call in the application.

According to the planning officer’s report, if permission is granted it will be as a holding direction to be referred to the Welsh Government. The call in request came during the LDP examination process. The LDP was adopted by the council last year.

Should ministers decide to back the council in granting permission, Flintshire’s chief planning officer will be authorised to approve the development.

Satplan has put together the planning statement which outlines a mix of detached, semi-detached, and townhouse style homes.

The proposals earmark 6.5 acres of public open space as well as play space which includes a multi-use games area, according to the planning report before the committee.

A link road will also be created between Denbigh Road and Gwernaffield Road providing access to the proposed development.

Astle Planning and Design has put together the design and access statement for the application, while Turley has undertaken the heritage assessment.

HK Planning has produced the green infrastructure statement.
