Plans Submitted for Over 300 New Homes in Ewloe Village

North Wales news and information

PLANS have been put forward to build more than 300 new homes in a village in Flintshire.
Castle Green Homes wants to create a total of 315 properties on land off Holywell Road and Green Lane in Ewloe.
If approved, the scheme would include 126 “affordable” houses, as well as new vehicle access points, public open space and a play area.
The site measures approximately 24.7 acres and mostly consists of agricultural fields.
The developer previously held a consultation over the proposals and has now lodged a formal application with Flintshire Council.
The same company also recently submitted plans to build 300 homes on land off Ash Lane in nearby Hawarden.

A draft statement regarding the Ewloe plans, which has been shared on Castle Green’s website, states: “The principle of residential development is established through the site’s allocation for housing in the Local Development Plan and its location within the existing settlement boundary.
“The site is in a highly sustainable location with good access to schools, shops and employment opportunities, also being well served for public transport links.
“The development of the site for housing will make a significant contribution to the delivery of new market and affordable homes in Flintshire.
“(This will) deliver an appropriate mix of housing to meet housing needs set out in the local housing market assessment and represent an efficient use of land.
“In the overall planning balance, this statement demonstrates that the development of the site would be sustainable development having regard to the social, economic, and environmental aspects of the proposal.”
The housing company has pledged to provide financial contributions to improve local facilities and mitigate the impact of the development.
Representatives said the houses would be designed and built to a “high standard”.
Further details regarding the application will be uploaded to the council’s website in the near future, with a decision to be made at a later date.
