Pending consideration


The principle of housing on this brownfield site has been accepted by local residents.  The current proposal for 143 dwellings has evolved from a series of consultations in which the density, layout and mix of housing as well as open space provision has been at issue.  The proposals include for traffic calming on Yew Tree Lane with chicanes. road narrowing and changes to the Rossett Green Lane junction.  There are still concerns chiefly about the highway and traffic implications.  The site is still in the ownership of the Home Office until a satisfactory solution can be achieved by the developer.
