The future of Mold – consultation opens on Draft Town Plan

Have your say on Mold’s development over the next 15 years – through the public consultation on the Draft Mold Town Plan which is open from 4 July to 15 August.

Following the two public exhibitions last November about a vision for the future of Mold, a draft Mold Town Plan has been developed. This builds on an outline Plan produced by Mold Town Council and Mold Town Partnership based on previous consultations and studies including key principles identified in the Sense of Place study, Mold Action Plan and the Cittaslow goals.

Flintshire County Council, as the local planning authority, has identified new sites for housing and other forms of development to meet local needs. The draft Mold Town Plan incorporates the Town Council’s responses to these ‘candidate sites’.

The Plan takes five key themes and sets out a series of principles for each theme, and outlines strategies and key projects which should be delivered. It helps to provide a framework for making decisions about the future of Mold. It will help to provide evidence and a focus for influencing FCC’s emerging Local Development Plan.

A six week public consultation on the draft Mold Town Plan opens on Monday 4 July until 15 August, please share your views and help the Town Council to accurately reflect the priorities of the community on the future of Mold to 2030.

Copies of the Plan will be available to view at:

Mold Town Clerk, Sam Roberts said, “At the exhibitions in November many people said how shocked they were by the potential future development of Mold identified by FCC’s candidate sites. The Mold Town Plan is a big project and the more people we have input from, the more successful we will be at accurately reflecting the collective view of the local community.”

The draft Mold Town Plan suggests that brown field sites should be developed before farm land. Left: One of FCC candidate sites on Gwernaffield Road.
