Supported housing scheme plans recommended for approval

Plans to build a new supported housing scheme in Wrexham could be given the go ahead next week.

In January 2018 Wrexham.com reported that plans for scheme, which would provide accommodation for four residents, is built on land at Eleventh Avenue in Llay.

The development would be based across two floors, with the “ground floor providing two one-bedroom apartments for residents with high support needs”.

In the initial application each apartment is described as having an open plan kitchen, living and dining areas, bedroom and assisted bathroom.

A staff base would also be located between the two apartments, with the application stating that two jobs will be created if the development is given the go ahead.

The scheme itself has been put forward following the “identification of housing need for four no. residents with high support needs within the Llay area.”

Next week councillors will have the chance to debate the application, which has been recommended for approval by Wrexham Council’s head of environment and planning.

The report received no formal objections, however Llay Community Council noted in their consultation that “the proposal is not in keeping with the surrounding properties by virtue of their scale and may result in overlooking and overshadowing impacts to neighbouring properties.”

The community council also requested that the outcome of the application is decided by the planning committe.

The report will be presented to members of the planning committee at 4pm on Monday 5th March. For those who cannot attend the meeting it will be webcast live via the Wrexham Council website.
