A planning application has been submitted to Flintshire County Council for the conversation of the Rose & Crown pub, New Brighton, Mold into houses.

However unlike the proposals for the Boars Head just down the road in Ewloe (see below) where developers want to demolish the pub, the Rose & Crown development aims to utilise the existing pub building.

Although, like the Boars Head,  the pub is deemed ‘poor’ internally preventing it being developed into what “customers now demand” the planning application states.

Sadly, the former Punch Taverns-owned pub closed several months ago having been on the market since January 2014, another clear signal that the small ‘drinking pub’ market is in irreversible and terminal decline.

The plan for the Rose & Crown is to convert the public house into two dwellings, level existing outbuildings and building another house on the reclaimed land creating three dwellings in total.

Planning Documents via Flintshire County Council’s website:

The historic Boar’s Head pub in Ewloe is set to be flattened and land used to build houses and apartments if developers get the gop ahead from Flintshire planners. 

The 17th-century pub on Holywell Road in Ewloe closed its doors to the public for the last time in 2002, it was threatened with demolition last year as plans submitted by developers in May 2014 included levelling the pub to make way for new flats.

Former councillor and heritage campaigner Klaus Armstrong-Braun had attempted to get listed status for the former staging post as a site of national importance, it is believed to be the oldest building in Ewloe and documents show the building was in use as early as 1602.

Hawarden Community Council also made a formal objection to its demolition, they asked Flintshire Council planners to ensure the building was retained in any future development plans.

The outline application submitted this week proposes to ‘replace’ the pub, structural consultants have concluded it’s not feasible to retain any part of the existing building due to age and condition, the pub will be replaced by a ‘mix of two story properties’ – from the plans it looks to be around 12 in number.
