Plans have been entered which could see more than 50 new homes built in a village in Flintshire.

Anwyl Homes has put the proposals forward as part of the latest phase of the Croes Atti development in Oakenholt, near Flint.

It would see 52 detached and semi-detached properties created as part of the scheme, which has already seen hundreds of houses constructed.

The Ewloe-based firm already has approval for 132 houses as part of the scheme.

However, they said a change in market conditions mean that alterations needed to be made.

In a planning statement, they said: “This detailed planning application seeks planning permission for the erection of 52 detached, semi-detached and mews style dwellings use with associated car parking, access and landscaping.

“The overall site has reserved matters approval for residential development consisting on 132 dwellings, new roads, open spaced and all associated works.

“The principles applied to the current approval still stand but a change in market conditions reflects the need for a new planning application.

“Whereas the reserved matters approval was for the whole site, this applications is for a reduced site area as illustrated.

“The overall intention is to create a quality residential development that has a mix of opportunities in terms of scale, accommodation and tenure.

“The scheme also connects to the other phases of the Anwyl Homes development at Croes Atti which is currently under construction.”

An application for 78 houses on the site was submitted by the company in October and is currently being considered by Flintshire Council.

In 2013, work on the development unearthed evidence of a Roman settlement, including a well-preserved section of Roman road, pottery and buildings.

During a consultation into the latest plans, questions were raised over how it would impact on an existing public footpath.

The firm said the right of way would be kept under the proposals.
The local authority is aiming to make a decision on the application  by February 8, 2019.
