Work begins on 36 new homes in Broughton

Construction work is underway on Bloor Homes new housing development in Broughton.

02/03/2017 - General

Bloor Homes is building 36 new homes on land off Chester Road at the eastern edge of the town.

Planning permission for the scheme, which forms an extension to Bloor’s existing Parc Jasmin development, was granted in November last year.

The new phase of homes will comprise a range of two-bedroom flats, two and three-bedroom mews houses and three-bedroom semi-detached homes.

Eleven of the homes will be provided as affordable housing to be sold at 70 per cent of the open market value.

The scheme will also feature a linear park along the eastern boundary of the four acre site, and Bloor will be contributing £35,653 towards off-site public open space through a legal agreement with Flintshire Council.

Rhys Nicholson, Regional Managing Director at Bloor Homes North West, said: “Our Parc Jasmin development has provided a range of much-needed new homes in an attractive and sustainable location and we pleased to be delivering a further 36 homes in this latest phase.
“The new homes will represent a logical and seamless extension to the existing development and have been carefully designed to complement their surroundings. Flintshire has an acknowledged housing shortage so this development will go some way to meeting the increasing demand for homes in the area.
“The scheme will also deliver a range of additional benefits to the local community, including funding for green spaces and the creation of additional jobs during the construction phase. Work is now underway and we look forward to welcoming visitors to the site when the sales office opens in April.”
