Further Comment on 190 extra houses - brought to the top

Anon says " Following the 'Brexit' debacle - construction is exactly what the country needs to boost it's economy. Providing that the council work to get what they need from the 106 agreements and any further cash they can get to help local amenities then I don't see why halting the build of 190 new homes is a problem."
This is my 2 penny worth, may sound a bit of rant in parts but I'm pretty cool about it.

You say " Brexit debacle" and "190 houses not a problem"

Lets take the "190 houses not a problem" first.

1. I want to live in a village not an urban sprawl.
2. I want to live in a village with little traffic.
3. I want to live in a village where I can call my doctor and get an appointment next
day and not have to wait 90 minutes in the waiting room.
4. Current villagers with young children want to know that their child will go to Castell Alun and not have to compete for entry with an extra 190 new households on top of the expanding new residents from existing recent developments. Last time I looked Castell Alun was "full up".
5. I don't want to be standing in a queue every day when I go to the Post Office.
6. I don't want to be sitting in queues to get out of the village, bypass or Chester Rd
7. Well House estate don't want 190 new houses.
8. More ASBO which cannot be dealt with properly by an overstretched North Wales Police.

More people mean more crime and anti social behavior
Local residents children will not be able to buy any of these houses.

"Brexit Debacle"
I presume you are one of those that think we are foolish
17 million people nationally, 49,000 in Flintshire who voted to leave the EU.
I was one of the 49,000.

This despite "advice" from President Obama, David Cameron, Mark Tami MP, George Osborne, lefty celebs, Universities, large business, the EU, BBC, local largest employer Airbus, Uncle Tom Cobley and all that remain was the only option.

My dad fought in World War 2 against a dictatorship, I voted against the EU because it is basically a dictatorship.

We've sacked David Cameron, George Osborne and the EU.
I'd like to sack the BBC, stop paying the License Fee.

I've stopped taking The Daily Post and The Flintshire Chronicle over their tardiness with the result
When's the next General Election....................

No School Bus? Knock on effect for all local transport?

GHA Bus Company who take Penyffordd school children to Castell Alun have gone bust as of last night. 400 redundancies. ( edit 320)
postscript: HMRC winding up notice ie. not paying taxes due.

Alternative arrangement will be made.

GHA were the biggest bus company in Wales.

Redrow's proposals to build 190 houses meeting Monday 18th July.

A community meeting about Redrow's proposals to build 190 houses on the land off Chester Road is being held on Monday 18th July at 8.30 pm at the Legion in Penyffordd.
Please help to spread the word! Thanks.

190 more houses - A Point of View

A comment brought to the top.

"I think Penyffordd & Penymynydd is stretched for amenities as is - but this future development is a positive thing - as it will push the need over the edge to therefore bring better services.

In such a green and pleasant village - won't 190 new houses be a good thing? In general the purchase pool is MBNA and British Aerospace, both of which represents higher earning, respectable members of the community.

walking round older areas of Penymnynydd around Penymynydd road some of the houses are tired, badly looked after and the low cost of these houses has the potential to attract society members with lower standards.

Personally I feel the development won't inherently change the feel of anything, is situated on a parcel of land that at the moment no one can see anyway, so therefore isn't spoiling any vistas etc, and would bring much needed wealth into the area."

Plenty of work signed up for Airbus

I've been to Farnborough. Hell of an experience if you have an interest in aviation engineering. Lots of engineering companies vying for work at the show.

Cllr David Williams - Email communication re proposed 190 Redrow houses

Email to Trish Sanderson - Penyffordd and Penymyndd Facebook page

This is the latest email from David Williams.

Hello All,

Just making contact as agreed where hopefully Ken can get the subgroup organised and we can branch out information as it comes to us.

I have been told that messages have gone out on facebook complaining that the meeting was not publicised well enough, and maybe there is a point in that, but I would hope that it can be understood that Friday was a starting point for more meetings as word gets around. I have also been told that there is a meeting to be held again on Monday, so if anybody can enlighten me further, I will happily attend, as will Cindy.

I have also attached copies of the plans Redrow have sent me, and I have also been sent details of the application that is on Flintshires site where I have copied the link below. No formal notice has been sent out to me as yet, but as soon as I get any more information I will send it on to you.…

I hope this helps for now and thanks for the support and special thanks to Ken for organising the sub group.

Further Education News

I've brought a comment up from my previous post. Is our Pen041 architect planning further destruction?

Quote "Keep an eye on this one Colin, a certain councillor is trying to get it built on the existing scout hut and youth centre rather than the infant site....wonder why? "

Prime Minister Prediction

Theresa May

I hope there are big jobs for Gove and Boris.

A Lordship for Farage.

Education News

New plans for a new primary school have been finalised. This is to replace the two existing primary schools in the village.
Clue. It's got nothing to do with LDP Pen041.

Can't see why St John's can't be thrown in too, a bridge too far for the Church of Wales. Perhaps we should be like France ie. secular, having no religious schools.

Saying that we are a Christian nation, those who choose different should live with it or go.
I await a visit by NWP to question my thoughts...........

A primary school site has been chosen, 2019 being the target date for completion.
More details when an official announcement is made.
