A consultation has been launched over plans to build new houses in Flint. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Draft proposals show up to 18 properties could be created on land at Bryn Road in the town. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Planning consultants acting on behalf of those behind the application said it would help to increase the availability of housing in the county. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

They added that it would also deliver road improvements in the area surrounding the development. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

In a planning statement, they said: “Flint is a principle settlment in the county with key social and community infrastructure capable of absorbing a modest development of a site of this size. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“The scheme would deliver enhancements to widen and upgrade Bryn Road along the site frontage and to deliver a new footway. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“The council cannot ignore its housing need position. The need for housing is acute and ongoing. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“The development comprises sustainable development, located on previously developed land in a n accessible key settlement. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“There is a presumption in favour of sustainable development on the land.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Comments are currently being invited on the proposals as part of a pre-application consultation up until 21 August. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
