PLANS have been entered which could see a derelict house demolished to make way for four new homes.

The proposals would see a property at 57 Bryn Glas in Rhosllanerchrugog knocked down.

The house is boarded up and an application has been submitted to Wrexham Council, which would see it replaced with two semi-detached

and two detached houses.

Outline permission for the scheme was originally granted in 2011 and the owners are now seeking full approval.

The original application was refused in 2010 because it would result in the loss of a number of trees.

However, a consultancy company has carried out an arboricultural assessment  which found the development would not have a detrimental impact.

A representative from Shields Arboricultural Consultancy said: “The proposed development site is situated to at the south end of a residential cul de sac, Bryn Glas, within the village of Rhosllanechrugog, Wrexham.

“A derelict dwelling currently stands on the site.

“It is proposed to develop the site to provide four dwellings, two semi-detached and two detached, along with an internal site road and associated infrastructure.

“Although a number of trees will be removed, in general these are either overgrown garden conifers or self-set saplings that have been allowed to establish through the neglect of this site and are not important elements in the landscape or character of the area.

“The most significant trees and particularly the area of woodland along the stream to the west are to be retained and integrated into the site layout.

“This will provide a mature landscape setting for the site which can be enhanced through new tree planting forming part of the landscaping of the development.

“The development in a sufficient distance from the woodland to protect

the trees and avoid damage from the construction works.”

A bat survey has also been carried out on the house, which found there are currently no bats roosting.

However, a recommendation has been made for a bat box to be fitted the new buildings to help transient bats.

The proposals will be considered by Wrexham Council at a future date.
