Plans have been submitted for 21 apartments; 15 two bed three person apartments, and six one bed two person apartments which will all be for affordable rent. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The application states the mix of accommodation is in line with high demand highlighted by Flintshire CC and Pennaf Housing who have submitted the application. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The proposed development will be 3 storeys high and situated on land next to the Gateway to Wales Hotel, the six lane section of the A494 and Welsh Road. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Details from the planning document: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The building will take the form of a single block of one and two bedroomed apartments arranged around communal stairs and internal ‘streets’, with shared
gardens and communal space. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

As the occupied part of the site is remote from Welsh Road, the proposed design takes context from the adjacent three storey apartments, the existing Days Hotel, and the A494 highway, which adjoins the site to the south-east. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The road in particular, dictates the form of the layout both visually and functionally. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The south-east corner will be visually prominent to passing traffic, but will also present an open aspect over the highway and to open countryside to the south. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The resulting layout has a communal entrance to the Welsh Lane access elevation, a central top-lit circulation spine running from east to west, and apartments facing either to the south-east or the north-west. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Feature one bed apartments are located to the prominent south-east corner. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

All of the apartments share a communal parking area to the front of the apartment block which acts as amenity space and a buffer to surrounding properties to the north. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Traffic noise dictates that window openings should be controlled to ensure that the new dwellings are quiet. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
