Development contractor Worthington Properties has submitted a planning application to Wrexham Council to build a Premier Inn on the site of the former Jacques scrap yard.

The proposed development will cost £6m bringing new life to the plot of land off Mold Road which has gone unused for several years.

Rumours of the creation of a new Premier Inn on the site emerged on the Wrexham.com forums late last month.

A spokesperson said that the hotel will have 83 rooms within a four story building and will create 33 jobs for the area in total.

The proposals also include plans for 83 guest parking spaces and a ground floor restaurant.

It is estimated that work could start as early as May if the planning application is successful with work expected to be completed within 12 months.

The planning application is expected to appear on the council website’s planning section at some point this week.
