NEW homes could be built on land at the back of a former pub.
A planning application has been submitted to Wrexham Council detailing proposals to build nine new properties near the site of the old Nags Head off Main Street in Bettisfield.
A design and access statement submitted to the local authority as part of the application shows the planned houses would all have five bedrooms.
The site has previously had consent granted on two separate applications – one for five homes and another for nine homes.
A further application of the demolition of the Nags Head and the construction of four homes in its place was approved in 2012 and this development has since been completed.
The statement reads: “The proposal is for nine five-bedroom, two-storey dwellings which is appropriate in density and massing to the adjoining residential developments.
“The proposed layout respects the format of the adjoining residential properties on Main Street and Cadney Lane. This scheme provides improved security for existing residents by utilising this vacant parcel of scrub land.
“The scale of the proposed development will be in keeping with the surrounding dwellings in Cadney Lane. All dwellings will be accessible by the disabled as well as ambulant people both inside and outside.
“Bettisfield does not have a dedicated bus service. However, we understand the county borough council operates the rural taxibus service providing links to nearby villages that run bus services.
“With regard to onsite parking, all dwellings have a minimum of two spaces plus garage.”
It concludes: “The proposed development will provide family homes within the heart of the village.
“The development will make optimal use of a redundant, unattractive site that has been designed to fit in well with the surrounding properties.
“The development will not impact on neighbouring residential amenity and an acceptable access can be provided.”
No date has been set for a decision on whether the proposed development can go ahead.
