UPDATE 26th October 2017

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: emma.hancock@flintshire.gov.uk
quoting reference: 057388

Full planning permission has now been submitted for a development of 36 over-55's retirement apartments off Rhos Road.

This is sited on land opposite the Rhos Road site which was recently given planning approval, on appeal, for 40 homes. There is a small plot of additional land between this site and the A550 which has been included in the LDP candidate register - this means that someone would like to develop the land under the Local Development Plan, but details are not known and it may not be considered.

What is in the plan?

The proposal is for:

12 one bedroom apartments
24 two bedroom apartments of which 4 are slightly larger

The site would include:
- a communal 'hub;' building,
- allotments,
- 36 allocated car park spaces,
- 8 garages,
- landscaped gardens,
- a pumping station
- fitness trail

The developer has proposed that the site should provide 'nil' affordable housing contribution.

Future residents will have to pay a site management fee to contribute to the ongoing management and maintenance of the shared facilities and ownership will be limited to over-55s only.

What happens next?

The plan will go before the Community Council at Septembers meeting and will be open for the 28 public consultation soon. It is expected to go to planning committee in October or November for a decision.

The Community Development Group will be meeting to discuss the proposal and an appropriate response. The village questionnaire provides a substantial insight into the views of the community and the effects on the potential sustainability of future developments.
