The Redrow Chester Road application for 186 is finally reaching its conclusion. Barristers and experts have been putting together the cases for Redrow and Flintshire County Council - everything you said in the questionnaire and the Place Plan are referenced in the evidence along with every one of the 300+ written objections from villagers.
At the public inquiry the two sides get to make their case to the inspector and be cross examined. The public can attend (and we should!) and speak if they wish, at the discretion of the inspector. At the end of the inquiry, the inspector reflects on the evidence and makes a recommendation to the Welsh Minister who will make the final decision.
You can view all of the evidence and cases presented online now.
There is a very useful guide which explains the whole process - you can read it here:
Flintshire have a built a case around the sustainability of the village, the environmental impact and the drainage issues. Redrow have challenged the proposed payments to schools they originally included.
As part of the inquiry there will be discussion about conditions of planning if the development goes ahead - that does not mean that a decision has already been made.
We will provide some of the more interesting extracts from the evidence before the inquiry.
If you can attend on the first morning or at any time please try to be there - if you can make the full three days all the better!
