Work on large scale Rossett housing development begins

Work to build more than 130 new homes in Rossett has begun.

Castle Green Homes will carry out the works on Rossett Road following the discharge of the final pre-commencement planning condition.

The controversial development for 132 homes on land to the north and south of Lane Farm was initially refused by Wrexham Council’s planning committee in January 2019 amid concerns over the loss of green land, the risk of flooding and the impact on pedestrian safety.

However, the decision to decline outline planning permission was overturned the following year after Welsh Government housing minister Julie James said the demand for more homes in Wrexham “significantly” weighed in favour of the plans.

Known as Trevalyn Place, in a nod to nearby Trevalyn Hall, the development will offer 99 private sale properties and 33 ‘affordable’ homes.

Castle Green Homes state that community investment agreed during the planning process includes local schools sharing circa £900,000.

Simon Finlay, development director at Castle Green Homes, said: “Castle Green Homes has a rich history of developing in the Wrexham area.

“We’re building 189 homes across a 39-acre site at Llys y Coed in Rhosrhobin and have just started work at Trevalyn Place in Rossett.

“The Rossett site is allocated for housing in the Local Development Plan and we’re keen to help meet targets for new homes in the area.

“We worked with local agents to understand any shortfalls in local housing supply and this research helped determine the mix of new homes we’re building in Rossett.”

The homes are being built across two parcels of land on the north and south side of Rossett Road.

Around 11 acres of the overall 15-acre site will be developed, with mature landscaping around the boundary retained and pockets of public open space throughout the new neighbourhood.

According to the developers the “private sale homes will offer a mix of three and four-bedroom semi-detached and detached homes, many of which will benefit from views over open countryside.”

The affordable homes will include one-bedroom apartments, plus two and three-bedroom mews and semi-detached homes.

 Castle Green will likely be promoting and advertising further details including pricing elsewhere.
