We have created 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.

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 sets 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 sets policy Aims and Actions based on the opinions of the people in the community.  

The Process

The plan has been prepared by volunteer residents alongside the Penyffordd Area Community Council and our local County Councillors. It was based on feedback from a village-wide questionnaire in late 2016 and has been presented at village events and public meetings. It was adopted by the Penyffordd Community Council in May 2017 and is currently being consulted on with Flintshire County Council. The aim is to have Flintshire adopt the plan as part of their own Local Development Plan and more widely to support the needs of our community.
