A DEVELOPER has revealed plans to build over 300 homes in a Flintshire village.

Castle Green Homes has launched a pre-application consultation over a proposal to build 315 homes on land off Holywell Road in Ewloe.

The proposed development site is located to the south of the B5125 Holywell Road, north of Green Lane and to the west of existing residential properties on the western boundary of the existing settlement of Ewloe Green.

The development would include 126 designated affordable homes, new vehicular access off Holywell Road and Green Lane, public open space and equipped play.

The site is approximately 24.7 acres and comprises a series of agricultural fields subdivided by existing trees and hedgerows. The site is currently utilised for agricultural purposes and bound by existing residential properties on its eastern and southern boundary. Land beyond the site’s northern and western boundary is currently open countryside in use for agricultural purposes.

The proposed homes will comprise a range of 2-storey one-to-four-bedroom properties and includes a variety of flats, terraced, semi-detached and detached properties. Castle Green Homes said it will agree on a range of financial contributions with the local planning authority as part of the planning application to support improvement to local facilities and infrastructure to mitigate the impact of the development.

It comes after the company submitted an application last week to Flintshire Council to build 300 homes on land off Ash Lane in Hawarden. 

The controversial development site has been the subject of staunch local resistance, with 2,500 people signing a petition in opposition to the Ash Lane development. 

There are growing concerns in the Hawarden area over the impact on flooding, the loss of green space and inadequate local infrastructure to meet the need of extra population.

Cllr Sam Swash said: "Even if those pushing this plan wish to continue to ignore the residents of Hawarden and Mancot, the residents of Hawarden and Mancot will not ignore them. They should expect our complete resistance."
