Corus regeneration will bring "significant benefits"

Plans to regenerate the old Corus site on Deeside will bring about a "series of significant benefits", according to Flintshire Council's Head of Planning.

Andrew Farrow expects the scheme to bring over 4,000 permanent and temporary jobs to the area:

"The proposed development has the potential to bring about a series of significant benefits in terms of housing provision, employment opportunities and community infrastructure...It is expected that the scheme will deliver 2,800 temporary construction jobs and 2,169 permanent jobs. It will deliver a range of housing type to meet local needs and consequentially there will be additional demand for local services supporting local regeneration."

– Andrew Farrow, Flintshire Council

The multi-million pound plans to build 600 houses, a hotel and a shopping centre will be decided upon in a meeting today.
