A PUBLIC meeting is being held over plans for a 141-home development in a Flintshire town.

It would be situated on land off Highmere Drive in Connah's Quay, and has prompted concerns from residents living nearby over increased traffic. 

Fears have also been expressed that schools and GP surgeries in the area would be unable to cope with the extra demand for spaces.

There has been a petition against the application - which goes before Flintshire Council's planning committee later this month. 

This Thursday (June 15), a public meeting is being held by local councillor Andy Hughes at Connah's Quay Cricket Club regarding the plans.


It will run between 7.30pm and 8.30pm and is open to all residents of the town who wish to have their say over the application.

Cllr Hughes said: "I will be given five minutes to put any objections/concerns forward to the planning committee June 21. I need to ensure I use every second to great effect, so it will be great to hear and discuss this with residents on Thursday.

"If you can't attend, but have concerns please drop me a message."

Edwards Homes has submitted the application to develop a field measuring around 5.2 hectares off Highmere Drive.

The proposed development includes a mixture of two, three and four-bedroom houses, with most being three-bedroom family homes.

The Ewloe-based company said the scheme had been designed to meet the current market demand, with a total of 39 affordable homes included in the plans.
