Demolition of village parish hall proposed to make way for flats

A parish hall in a Wrexham village could soon be demolished to make way for housing.

In an outline application submitted to Wrexham Council it has been proposed that the parish hall on Church Street, Rhosymedre is knocked down to allow six flats to be built on the site.

The proposals have been put forward due to the building being increasingly expensive to maintain and underused. It is hoped that the proposals for the land would help “provide local starter units”.

The plans also include the development of a new dedicated parish office, which would be located on the right hand side of the site.

Details about the proposed development are provided in the application’s design and access statement, which says: “The site currently contains the parish hall with associated car parking. There is also pedestrian access to the parish church.

“The proposal has been designed to take account of the physical characteristics of the site. The site will be visible from nearby properties and the adopted highway.

“The proposed location of the properties is sympathetic to neighbouring dwellings and will sit comfortably within the urban landscape.”

If the proposals are given the go ahead, six one bedroom flats built over two floors, will be developed on the site.

The existing nine car parking spaces on the site would also be retained.

The application will be considered for approval at a later date.
