Plans submitted for 155 Flintshire homes

Castle Green Homes intends to address the “chronic local housing need” with its proposals for the vacant 13-acre plot off Well Street in Buckley.

The housebuilder has submitted plans to Flintshire County Council to deliver 155 homes in the North Wales town.

Proposals feature a mix of apartments and bungalows, as well as detached and semi-detached houses.

There would be 16 one-, 30 two-, 95 three-, and 14 four-bedroom properties, of which 62 would be available through social landlord Clwyd Alyn under affordable tenures.

Residents would have access to two acres of public open space, with plans to retain existing landscaping.

The site, which is made up of two agricultural fields, was previously the subject of an undetermined outline application from Clwyd Alyn for 140 homes.

Stuart Andrew, design and planning director at Castle Green, said the plans have been designed “to address chronic local housing need.”

“As such, we’re proposing that 40% of the development will be much-needed affordable housing, to be delivered in partnership with Clwyd Alyn,” Andrew said.

“Subject to planning, we would also commit to funding local community facilities and infrastructure to support the growth of the neighbourhood.”

Grimster Planning is the scheme’s planning consultant. Also on the project team are Ascerta, Tower Surveys, SCP, Nexus Heritage, Alan Johnston Partnership, and E3P.
