Developer Gets Green Light On Appeal For Wales Project
Developer Wales & West Housing Association has won an appeal to deliver ‘much-needed’ affordable homes in Gwersyllt in Wrexham.
The scheme, which was initially refused by Wrexham Council, was sent on appeal to the Welsh Government and their appointed planning inspector has now overturned that decision.
The housing association, who’re speaking at the Wales Development Conference about their projects in January, are planning to build 23 homes at the Woodlands Farm site. These would be a mixture of flats, bungalows and houses.
Richard Jenkins, the Planning Inspector, said the affordable homes would deliver big benefits for the area: “The fact that the appeal relates to an application submitted by a housing association for a 100% affordable housing scheme weight substantially in favour of the development. The evidence indicates that there is a significant need for affordable housing within the area and this scheme is deliverable – with the site already in the ownership of a registered social landlord and social housing grant funding available within the deliver programme for the next three years.”
Wales and West Housing Association will be revealing their future development projects and pipeline of new homes at the Wales Development Conference. Click here to view the event >
