A DEVELOPER has revealed plans to build over 100 affordable homes in Flintshire.

Castle Green Homes has launched a public consultation on its plans to build 128 new homes in Oakenholt, near Flint.

The consultation website can be accessed via https://bit.ly/47TtuWQ.

The site is located south of the A548 Chester Road, west of Leadbrook Drive and east of residential properties on the Croes Atti development.

The site is approximately 12 acres (4.87 hectares) and is currently used for agricultural purposes, surrounded 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.

All of the proposed 128 homes will be designated affordable housing and comprise a range of two-storey one-to-four-bedroom properties and include a variety of flats, terraced and semi-detached properties.


In addition to the provision of on-site public open space, Castle Green Homes will agree on a range of financial contributions with the local planning authority as part of the planning application, to provide funding for local facilities and infrastructure to mitigate the impact of the development.

Castle Green Homes said the dwellings, roads and associated landscaping proposed will be designed and constructed to a high standard. They will be entirely in keeping with the character of the surrounding area and in accordance with relevant policies within the Flintshire Local Development Plan, while making a significant contribution to meeting the identified housing needs of Flintshire.

The scale of the proposed development would equate to 53 per cent of Flintshire Council's annual affordable housing requirement of 238 dwellings per annum.
