News: 30 May 2019Phase two of steelworks regeneration in the pipeline

Following an extensive and well backed public consultation in 2018 our multi-disciplinary team, led by our Birmingham Planning team, have submitted a pre-application consultation for a district centre and housing at the former Brymbo Steelworks in North Wales, on behalf of Brymbo Developments Ltd, a subsidiary of Parkhill Estates.

Phase two of the regeneration of the disused steelworks aims to deliver 450 houses and a new district centre, including a primary school, anchor retail store, ancillary retail, a pub/restaurant and a medical centre, alongside essential infrastructure to link the villages of Brymbo and Tanyfron.

Kathryn Ventham, Partner said “Further to an extensive public consultation in 2018, the public support for Phase two was extremely positive. This new community will not only provide many new homes for local people but also a spine road to connect local villages and over 32 acres of open space for the community to enjoy.”

It is anticipated that following the grant of outline planning permission in late 2019, the first residential dwellings and the District Centre will start to be delivered in 2020. 

Brymbo Heritage Trust are submitting applications to commence work on the heritage development of land around the Machine Shop, which sits alongside this site and has received significant National Lottery Funding to promote its former industrial heritage. 

After a month of consultation, the plans will be formally submitted to Wrexham County Borough Council at the end of this month.
