Protect Summerhill's Green Space

PLANNING APPLICATION FOR 31 HOUSES ON BOTTOM ROAD, SUMMERHILL

A formal application for outline planning permission has now been submitted to Wrexham Council, which you can view here by searching with the Case Number P/2020/0151 :

www.wrexham.gov.uk/english/planning_portal/plan_policy/haveyoursay.htm

In 2016, an application for 59 houses on this site and adjoining fields was refused by Wrexham Council, and then again on appeal to the Planning Inspectorate (Case Number P/2016/0738). Factors such as traffic and flooding/drainage were considered, but it was refused mainly because it extended the village boundary into green barrier. It was described by the Inspector as “an illogical addition to the development of Summerhill” which would be “materially detrimental to the landscape and townscape character” of the area. 

Nothing has changed!

Re-submitting the application bit by bit still breaches the village boundary and is still illogical.

If you agree, please sign our open letter to Wrexham Council and the developers to protect our open space - click here

No to urban sprawl in Wrexham

.

Plans for 455 new houses on the Circus field on the Mold Road are the latest example of growing urban sprawl in Wrexham borough. If you look at the map you'll see the planned new estate will fill all the fields to the south of the farm shop right to the A483 and Mold Rd roundabout. In addition,there will be houses on both sides of Stansty Lane beyond the underpass.

This raises serious questions about increased traffic on what is essentially a country lane. It also raises questions about how the road network by Ysgol Plas Coch and adjoining roads will cope with hundreds of extra cars at peak times. There is already planning permission for 400 new flats on the Glyndwr university campus that will be accessing Plas Coch Road. Imagine the congestion at rush hour!

And what about health services, schools and other essential services?

Countess of Chester Hospital - reverse decision to bar patients from Wales

We call on the Countess of Chester Hospital Foundation Trust to reverse its decision to bar patients from Wales from new outpatient referrals. The unilateral ban on Welsh patients is unethical and goes against the values of the NHS. There is a financial dispute that needs to be resolved urgently between various NHS bodies and they must act immediately to end this stalemate. In the meantime we demand that patients are allowed to access services at the Countess of Chester Hospital.
