MORE than 500 people have registered interest in new homes being built in Wrexham.

Building work at Trevalyn Place on Rossett Road in Rossett is currently taking place, with Castle Green Homes preparing to release the first homes for sale this summer.

Sales director Sian Pitt said: “The volume of enquiries we’ve received from people looking for a new home in Rossett reflects our research into the local market.

"There’s a high demand for homes in Rossett and at Trevalyn Place we’re addressing that need by building a good mix of aspirational yet functional homes. In response to the number of enquiries we’ve received, we’ll soon be releasing the first homes for sale off plan.

“There’s already the option to take virtual tours inside the homes we’re building via the website, with the ability to view furnished or unfurnished. We’d encourage anyone considering moving here to create a Willow account via our website in readiness for the launch. They’ll be able to book an appointment with the sales team, select their favourite homes, explore the exquisite specification options we offer and then reserve their new home online.”

The land Castle Green is building on is allocated for housing in the Local Development Plan.

Permission for the 132-home scheme was initially refused by Wrexham Council's planning committee in January 2019 amid concerns over the loss of green land, risk of flooding and impact on road safety.

The decision was overturned the following year after the then Welsh Government housing minister Julie James said the demand for more homes in Wrexham "significantly" weighed in favour of the plans.

Despite 170 objections, the application was approved in 2022. 

Around 11 acres of the overall 15-acre site will be developed, with mature landscaping around the boundary retained and pockets of public open space throughout the new neighbourhood.

Trevalyn Place will offer 99 private sale properties, including a mix of three and four-bedroom semi-detached and detached homes, many of which will benefit from views over open countryside. The development will also include 33 designated affordable homes.

Community investment agreed during the planning process includes local schools sharing circa £900,000, with the funding to be distributed via the local authority.
