Plans to demolish a nursery to make way for new housing have been submitted.
In an outline application lodged with Wrexham Council it has been proposed the vacant Scallywags day nursery, Pentre Maelor, is demolished and seven homes are built on the land.
Within the application’s design and access statement the “vacant day nursery site” is described as being subject to vandalism – with scattered content of a storage building “all over the site”.
Fences have also been damaged following the closure of the nursery.
The site itself is described as ‘brownfield’ with the applicants stating that support of the application will help Wrexham Council ‘reduce its deficit’ on new houses in the county borough.
Details are also provided on the appearance and potential design of the properties – which will be made up of two and three bedrooms.
It is noted that the “development will provide the area with additional family homes”, consisting of semi-detached and mews style properties.
The design and access statement concludes: “We feel this planning application should be looked favourably upon as we feel there are no justifiable reasons for refusal.
“Support of this application on a brownfield site would allow the local authority to reduce their deficit on new dwellings required for the county borough.
“Development of this parcel of land within the community will vastly improve on the current characteristics of the site, adding to the natural surveillance for the area.”
The application will be considered for approval at a later date.
