Here’s what’s on the agenda for today’s Planning & Development Control Committee at County Hall, Mold.

Members of Flintshire County Council’s planning committee look set to approve multi-million-pound modernisation plans for Connah’s Quay High School. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Wrexham based Kier Construction have been chosen to carry out the proposed work which includes the demolition of an existing Design and Technology block and Art and Food Technology block. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The three storey block will be replaced with a new two-storey building comprising Administration, D&T, Food Tech, Art and Design and room for additional teaching provision, office space, toilets, lift, stairs and a plant room. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The work, costing around £10m forms part of the Welsh Government’s 21st-century schools programme and follows the successful completion of Holywell Learning Campus and Deeside 6th Form College. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Kirsty Williams AM, the Cabinet Secretary for Education said upgrade plans for the school have to be in place by  July 2017 as part a demand she set out when ruling in favour of Flintshire County Council’s proposal to close John Summers High School in Queensferry this summer. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Should planning be approved building work is due to start this summer with completion slated for early 2019. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The application has been recommended for approval. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Also under consideration today are plans to build two wing-shaped restaurants at Broughton Park.

Plans to build the aviation inspired restaurants on Broughton Retail Park were submitted to Flintshire County council last July however, concerns over the land owners long term approach to parking and the loss of car parking space saw the application deferred. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Following a car park survey the planning officer has concluded the addition of the two restaurants and public realm improvements would “enhance and complement the current offer at Broughton Park.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The planning officer also says “It is not considered that on the whole, the loss of parking spaces is significant.
The proposed uses will complement the existing uses on the park and will not in themselves lead to an increased number of visitors.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

It too has been recommended for approval. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
