An outline planning application for over 20 new houses in Rhosrobin has been submitted.

If the application is successful, 24 houses could be built on vacant land just south of the Rhosddu Industrial Estate and to the west of Llay New Road.

The application states that the site is ‘in a sustainable location; adjacent existing residential homes, schools, shops, post office and a general store and employment’. Before going onto note that the facilities are all within ‘convenient walking and/or cycling distance’.

As the application is in its outline stages, no indication to the design of the houses and the number of bedrooms is provided in the documents at present.

The report however does go onto note however that a new vehicular and pedestrian access would be created off the Llay New Road.

The application’s Design and Access Statement notes: “The site forms part of a poor quality agricultural field, which is currently let for sheep on a short term lease.

Earlier this month we reported that an application had been submitted to build 117 new dwellings on vacant land between Pandy and Rhosrobin.

The development would consist of twenty nine ‘affordable’ houses, broken down to:

  • 16 x one bed terraced apartment
  • 10 x two bed semi and terraced houses
  • 3 x three bed semi and terraced houses.

Along with housing proposals, if the application is successful alterations would be made to the Llay New Road with the implementation of a new roundabout.

If both applications are passed, the two new developments would lie within a short walking distance of one another.

The Design and Access Statement for the most recent outline application concludes with seven bullet points, including: “The site is in a sustainable location, the indicative scheme suggests that 24no dwellings can be accommodated on the site and the site is within an area of other developments.”
