We are creating a Place Plan for our village, which sets out the needs of the community as viewed by the people who live here.

The people of the village are not opposed to development and growth that is proportionate, sustainable and addresses the needs of the community, rather than speculative proposals from Developers. 

We have created quick links for the current major planning applications affecting the village.

Our Beginning

The ward of Pen-y-ffordd, containing the villages of Pen-y-ffordd, Penymynydd and Dobshill, nestled between Chester, Mold and Wrexham, in the beautiful Welsh border country, have become a popular place to live. In the last 10 years, the number of homes in the village has increased from 1,300 to over 1,700. Flintshire County Council are currently reviewing their Local Development Plan (LDP) for the next 15 years and as a village we would like to have a united voice in that process.


“...putting people, and their quality of life now and in the future, at the centre of decision making.”

— planning policy wales chapter 4.3.1


The Community Development Plan will set out the village priorities in the things that affect our lives the most. Transport, housing and land development, sports and clubs and the environment. It will set policy plans based on the opinions of the people in the community.  


The Process

To start with, the Community Group, which consists of a team of interested villagers along with our Community Council, will draft an outline plan using Gwernymynydd and Mold plans as a template. We are inviting contributions from any villagers who are involved in community groups, team or clubs or individuals who want to be heard. We have circulated a questionnaire to get opinion on policy matters and, in time, we will exhibit the draft plan in the village to get more feedback.
