The proposed development site is located on land to the west of Gladstone Way and West of Ash Lane, Mancot.
Castle Green Homes are undertaking pre-application consultation in advance of submitting a planning application seeking full consent for 300 new homes, including 105 affordable homes alongside vehicular and pedestrian accesses of Gladstone Way and Ash Lane, areas of public open space, equipped play, structural landscaping and sustainable drainage infrastructure.
The Site is approximately 27.33 acres (11.06 hectares) and consists of a number of agricultural fields bound by existing residential properties on its northern, eastern and western boundaries. Land beyond the site’s southern boundary is open countryside currently in use for agricultural purposes.
The Site is allocated for residential development in the adopted Flintshire Local Development Plan. The proposed 300 homes will comprise a range of 2-storey one-to-four-bedroom properties and include a variety of flats, terraced, semi-detached and detached properties to meet the needs of a wide range of buyers from first time buyers, families and downsizers. Properties will incorporate a range of measures including double glazing, energy efficient heating systems, insulated flooring and a high standard of roof and wall insultation.
In addition to the provision of on-site public open space, Castle Green Homes will agree a range of financial contributions with the local planning authority as part of the planning application, to provide funding for the improvement of local facilities and infrastructure to mitigate the impact of the development.
The dwellings, roads and associated landscaping will be designed and constructed to a high standard and will be entirely in keeping with the character of the surrounding area and in accordance with relevant policies within the Flintshire Local Development Plan, offering a well-considered and attractive place to live for future residents and make a significant contribution to meeting the identified housing needs of Flintshire.
