Bellway Homes is due to start on site as soon as possible to deliver 54 homes at Jubilee Place, located at the former Corus steelworks site in Deeside.

Plans form phase three of the masterplan for the Northern Gateway, a key strategic site in the Flintshire Local Plan, which calls for 1,300 homes and 200 acres of employment land to be built there.

Jubilee Place will introduce a mixture of houses and apartments on a four-acre brownfield plot.

Homes delivered will feature two one-, four two-, 29 three-, and 19 four-bedroom properties.

There will be 10% affordable housing provision provided.

Lichfields is the scheme’s planning consultant. Also on the project team is landscape architect Highstone Design and transport consultant Curtins.

Imogen Zulver, senior planner at Lichfields, said: “We are working with property developers and local planning authorities to ensure schemes like this are both viable and a welcome addition to local areas, contributing towards providing high quality homes for local people.

“The Jubilee Place scheme will be a terrific development, creating a sustainable residential neighbourhood within walking distance of local amenities”, she continued. “It will undoubtedly contribute positively
to this part of the local area and we look forward to work on the project getting started.”
