There is such a lot happening to our village at the moment, here is a quick update on where everything is up to and what you can do:

Chester Road - 186 Houses (Redrow)

There is to be a public inquiry held in our village. Barristers representing Redrow and Flintshire County Council will present the cases to the planning inspector. 

15th / 16th / 17th November 2017 10:00am
Royal British Legion, Penyffordd

Please come along if you can and show how strongly the village feels.

Hawarden Road - 32 Houses

New Reference: APP/A6835/A/17/3182034
The planning inspectorate have decided to continue to work with the original appeal timeline and therefore we only have until the 31st October 2017 to submit any additional comments to the inspector via this link:


The decision has been taken to hold another public inquiry and the details and dates have not yet been provided.

Hanson Cement - Expansion

Planning reference 057343
This is now closed for comments officially but no date has been set yet for committee and therefore you can comment by writing to the planning officer directly Mr G Nancarrow at Flintshire County Council

Rhos Road - South - 36 Retirement Apartments

Planning reference: 057388
This application is now closed for comments, but because the date of planning committee has not been finalised it is still possible to comment by emailing the planning officer directly:

Rhos Road - North - 40 Houses


Proposal for 40 houses which was granted outline planning permission last August. There is now an application submitted for reserved matters - the next step in getting full approval to start building.

New School

Reference No: 057599

The plans for the new school have now been submitted to planning as they are. You can now view the plans and comment via the planning portal. One significant change from the public meeting and consultations is that they have included Phase 2 expansion plans in the planning permission.

The planning officer will decide what transport measures need to be included. You should let him know if you are concerned

Is there more?

We have heard of reports about surveyors working on land off Vounog Hill, close to Meadowslea, and on Tom Jones farm on Penymynydd roundabout . We need to be vigilant and prepared - above all we need to remain strong and use our collective voice through our Village Place Plan. 

If you haven't signed up to it already please do it now - it only takes a minute!
