Garden City: Flintshire Council greenlights Leprechaun pub demolition
A Garden City pub, located near the A494, has received approval for demolition from Flintshire County Council.
The former Leprechaun public house on Welsh Road has been closed since the pandemic and remained vacant since then.
In July, a proposal for the demolition of the building was submitted by EDGE Architects NW Ltd, acting on behalf of the property owner, Corbett Bookmakers.
The application indicated that the demolition was necessitated by the building’s poor condition.
Although the demolition method was not detailed extensively, it was confirmed to involve stripping out and hand demolition, with materials and debris being transported to a landfill site.
“The land will be levelled to match the existing terrain.”
The planning officer’s report notes that the application form indicated plans for redevelopment of the land, but the Local Planning Authority (LPA) has not been informed of the specifics at this stage.
“The proposed demolition aligns with the criteria outlined in Schedule 2, Part 31 of the GPDO, therefore no additional approval is necessary.”
Currently, there are no plans detailing what will replace the pub.
