A meeting will take place later to decide whether to push ahead with multi-million pound plans to regenerate the old Corus site on Deeside.

The plans include building 600 houses over a twelve year period, a business and technology park, hotel and a shopping centre. Over 2000 jobs would be created.

Other features of the development include a parkland, footpaths, cyclepaths and improved flood defences.

Opponents to the plans have raised concerns over privacy issues and increased traffic to the area.
