Twelve new apartments could soon be built in Rhos as part of new plans submitted to Wrexham Council.

The application, submitted on behalf of North West Housing Association by Broadgrove Planning and Development, proposes that three buildings are erected on “vacant land adjoining a local authority car park” at Bonc Wen.

If approved the development will consist of 12 one bedroom “affordable” apartments.

18 car parking spaces and bike storage will also be provided on the site.

In terms of the design of the development, the applicants say: “The layout consists of three apartment blocks each consisting of 4 walk-up apartments.

“The ground floor units will be accessed from a door in the front elevation and have the benefit of a private rear garden.

“The first-floor units would be accessed via a door to the side elevation with outside space being provided in a generous balcony to the rear.

“All units have one bedroom and would comprise affordable housing. The size and type of units proposed has regard to local need.

“The buildings will have the appearance of a traditional semi-detached dwellings which is in
keeping with the built character of the surrounding area which predominant comprises two
storey dwellings.”

They add: “The proposal represents a well-designed development which would protect and enhance the appearance of the site and wider area. The height and scale of the apartment’s blocks are appropriate given the local context and will ensure the amenity of neighbouring and future residents is protected.

“The proposals have been assessed against all relevant national and local planning policy and the Planning Policy Wales presumption in favour of sustainable development.

“For the reasons stated in this statement it is requested that the officer appointed to determine this application should look upon this scheme favourably and recommend approval without delay.”

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