A PLANNING application to turn a vacant Wrexham property into an apartment block is among the latest submitted to the council. 

Plans have been submitted to turn Flat 1 of 3 Central Buildings, on Hall Street in Rhos, into five one-bedroom apartments. 

The building, which used to be a residential property containing a small shop, has been empty for 20 years.

An application has also been submitted to build new homes on the site of an old garage in Llay. 

The plans would see three homes built on the site of Woodville Garage, at 14 Gresford Road in Llay. 

Outlining the plans, the applicant said in documents submitted to Wrexham Council: "The existing site has residential properties to the side and rear. The proposed new dwellings are of similar scale to those surrounding it and have been positioned within the site to provide a coherent street scene whilst allowing for a large front parking area and generous rear garden.

"There are existing buildings within the site which are in poor condition and are proposed to be carefully removed and replaced with the proposed high-quality dwellings, thereby enhancing the site and the surrounding area. The existing Garage is no longer running as a business."
