A former Royal Welch Fusilier Territorial Army building on Connah’s Quay High Street is to be converted into housing after planners gave a proposed development the go-ahead.

Broadstone Property Limited, a St.Albans based developer bought the property for £145,000 and have submitted plans to create seven three bed houses along with four flats within the existing building. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

According to documents submitted to planners the building was constructed in 1936 by the Territorial Army and was home to the Royal Welch Fusiliers 5th (Flintshire) Territorial Army. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The building had been on the market for some time having been vacant for a number years, it has fallen into a state of disrepair say the developers. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The former army building is separated into two distinct elements, the two storey building which fronts the High Street and the hall at the rear. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The existing buildings, which documents describe as “a nice example of 1930’s Architecture” will undergo mainly alterations. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The single storey portion external to the main hall at the rear is to be demolished to make room for external garden space. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The front building is being internally refurbished while the hall at the rear will undergo extensive alterations to provide doors and windows at the correct levels for the seven houses. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The development has been designed to be in keeping with the original building and the main entrance to the front building will be retained. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

At the rear of the hall the existing carpark will be re-configured to provide 11 car parking spaces and a children’s play area. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

It’s not known when work will begin. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
