Construction commences on Dutton Fields in North Wales
9th October 2019
Housebuilder Countryside has commenced construction on 283 homes on the site of the former RAF Sealand South Camp in Deeside.
The 18-acre site, called Dutton Fields, was granted planning permission by Flintshire Council in June following the submission of a reserved matters application by Nexus Planning. The scheme will deliver three and four bedroom houses which will contribute to Flintshire’s family housing offering and significantly improve the character and quality of the area.
There will be 28 homes earmarked as affordable and 99 available for private rent through Sigma Capital. There will be 156 homes for open market sale which will be available through the help to buy scheme.
Mark Hadfield, regional managing director for Countryside, said: “Dutton Fields is a particularly strategic development for Countryside. It will see our business expand into North Wales with the ultimate objective of providing high quality and affordable homes for Flintshire.
“The development of RAF Sealand is a long-anticipated project and we are very proud to be taking it forward. Throughout our time on site we will work with the local community to create on-site training and employment.”
