A building firm has increased the number of properties in the fifth phase of its huge development to allow for affordable homes. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

Anwyl’s resubmitted application was confirmed in a letter to Denbighshire council planners on April 21. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

In the original proposal, lodged in January this year, the property company said it planned 96 detached and semi-detached homes for the latest tranche of housing on Parc Aberkinsey, Rhyl. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

Now it has resubmitted the application, for land between Bro Deg and Dyserth Road in the town, and amended it to include 10 affordable homes. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

Rhyl Town councillors objected to the original 96 home plan unless:  “…community benefits including open space, community centre and new school required under Planning Application No. 45/2004/1376/PO will be delivered for the benefit of existing and future occupiers of the earlier and currently proposed development built”. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

It also called for the company to address traffic issues affecting the B5119 Pen Y Maes Avenue junction with Dyserth Road and the stretch of road known locally as “Dyserth Bends” ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

The town’s council also wants Anwyl to make provision for local bus routes, including bus shelters for passengers. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

The revised total of properties is now 105 – broken down as: ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

  • 10 two bedroom open market houses
  • 51 three bedroom open market houses
  • 34 four bedroom open market houses
  • A one bedroom affordable apartment
  • Three two bedroom affordable houses
  • Six three bedroom affordable houses

The larger Parc Aberkinsey scheme was granted planning permission in 2006, two years after submitting plans, and having fought off local objections relating to flooding and transport issues. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

This would be the fifth phase of building on the wider site. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​
