Eight new apartments could soon be built on land in the Erddig area.

Plans submitted to Wrexham Council for approval propose that the properties are developed on what is currently used as a residential garden at 2 Belgrave Road, Wrexham.

Blueprint Architectural Services Ltd, which have submitted the proposals on behalf of the applicants, say that “when the land for 2 Belgrave Road was developed the owners purchased the land which was originally to be used as another building plot.”

They add that the “land is too large for a garden to number two and the decision has been made to obtain planning and make better use of the land.”

If approved the properties would consist of two bedrooms and open plan kitchen, living and dining space.

The development would also include the creation of a new access road off Belgrave Road and parking in front of the apartments.

In terms of the appearance of the homes, the applicants state: “Materials will be in keeping with the Conservation area.

“Brickwork to the elevations with Stone heads and cills. Elevations indicate the horizontal feature brick banding which is replicated from the opposite property.

“Hipped roof structure is proposed, again to mirror the opposite corner structure. Coverings will be natural Welsh slate.

“The building has several projections similar to the bay windows which many of the surrounding properties benefit from.

“The stepped elevations which form from these projection will add interest to the appearance as well as avoid a bland, structure which would appearance overly large.

“All works are to be done sympathetically to the adjacent buildings and the local area.

“The new apartments will be fully insulated to meet the requirements of the current Building regulations, thus ensuring the dwellings will be thermally and acoustically efficient.

“The proposed new build properties will be fitted with lighting outlets which take lamps of luminous efficacy of at least 40 lumens/circuit watt to ensure that the dwelling has efficient light fittings. 100% of light fittings installed are to be energy efficient light fittings.”

The applicants add: We feel this proposal complies with the Local Authority Planning guidelines and policies.

“The large garden provides a perfect opportunity to provide much needed housing to Wrexham within a settlement limit.

“With the care that has been taken in the design of the external appearance and relationship to the site boundaries and surrounding properties it will provide a positive contribution to the Conservation area.”

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