Almost 60 new homes could be built green space in Wrexham if planning proposals are given the go ahead.
In outline plans submitted to Wrexham Council it has been proposed a housing development consisting of 59 dwellings is built on land to the east side of Bottom Road, Summerhill.
Reasons as to why the location has been chosen are listed within the Design and Access Statement, which notes that nearby amenities include the local health centre, education facilities, golf course, local shop and the sports centre.
The document continues onto add: “The proposal aims to strike a balance between the provision of housing with sufficient parking, amenity space, landscaping and the preservation of the existing key features of the site.
“The level of development would allow for a sufficiently spacious layout to accomodate suitable areas of recreation open space and allow for the necessary separation between properties to ensure that there would be no significant impact upon residential amenity.”
As the application is in outline stages details of how many bedrooms per house are not provided.
However it is proposed that 45 of the properties are ‘market housing’, 10 are social rented housing and four are intermediate housing.
Details of parking spaces for the houses are not provided, however the Design and Access Statement notes that parking ‘will be provided close to each dwelling with a mixture of garages, parking bays and parking courts’.
The document continues onto state: “The intention will be to avoid parked cars dominating the street where parking is visible this will be softened with landscaping.
“An area for the provision of onsite parking and construction traffic during development can be achieved and should be secured via condition.”
The Design and Access Statement concludes: “Overall, it can be seen that this proposal will offer a quality development, contributing to a mix of housing stock within the vicinity, in a manner that would complement and enhance the character and setting of the local area including the SLA, whilst remaining compatible with the surrounding land uses.”
It is anticipated the application will go before Wrexham’s Planning Committee at a later date.
