Plans to build an affordable housing development on land behind a Wrexham hotel have been given the go ahead.
The application for 19 dwellings and six flats on land off Jaques Way – behind the Premier Inn on Mold Road – was approved by Lawrence Isted, the chief officer of planning and regulatory, via a delegated decision.
Last year it was reported that Castlemead Group Limited and Wales and West Housing had put submitted the application for the former scrap yard site after a public information meeting in the summer.
Plans show that the development will consist of a mixture of two and three bedroom properties – along with one and two bedroom apartments.
Details released at the time stated that Wales and West Housing would manage the social rented housing scheme in a bid to try to boost the amount of affordable housing in the area; with a market assessment carried out in 2018 finding that 4,586 households in Wrexham are in need of such accommodation.
In the joint planning application Castlemead Group and Wales and West Housing said explained that the plans had been put forward to make a “valuable contribution” to meeting the housing need.
