DEVELOPERS wanting to build restaurants are appealing against Flintshire Council for taking too long to decide over their planning application.

Development Securities submitted a controversial planning application for a leisure park in Broughton on December 26 last year.

The company wants to build a pub restaurant, fast food outlets and a hotel on land between Broughton Retail Park and Chester Road.

A medical centre and council contact centre are also key elements of the revised scheme which previously included a cinema complex.

But Flintshire planners and local councillors have failed to support the proposals in the absence of any certainty over whether the medical centre, contact centre and hotel would be delivered.

Now the company has now lodged an appeal against Flintshire Council for non-determination of the application and has also submitted a second, identical application.

Mark Krassowski, director of Walsingham Planning, consultants for Development Securities, said it was likely Flintshire’s planning committee would consider its position on the appeal and the fresh application at the next planning committee meeting, scheduled to take place on September 3.

“If the council decide to support the proposal, they can grant consent for the second application,” Mr Krassowski said.

“Development Securities would then withdraw their appeal.

“If the council however decide to oppose the proposal, they will have to decide at the committee meeting on what grounds.

“If the appeal proceeds it is likely to be heard at a public inquiry in December 2014.”
