Broad Oak Farm Barns are situated in a semi-rural setting within the hamlet of Broad Oak, on the fringe of the popular villages of Rossett and Pulford. Rossett offers an excellent range of local amenities, including a dentist, Co-operative store, doctors’ surgery, restaurants and public houses, whilst Chester and Wrexham provide a more comprehensive offering.
There is good local state schooling in the area, including St Peter’s Primary School and Darland High School in Rossett. Highly regarded independent schools include King’s and Queen’s Schools in Chester, Abbey Gate College, Saighton and Ellesmere College; the latter having a local school pick-up in the area.
The area is well-placed for commuting to the commercial centres of the North West, with excellent access to the A483, Wrexham Bypass, connecting to the Chester Southerly Bypass, in turn leading to the national motorway network. Both Chester and Wrexham Railway Stations offer services to London Euston within 1¾ and 2 hours respectively.
Chester Business Park, Wrexham Industrial Estate and Deeside Industrial Park are all within a short daily commute, as are the larger commercial centres of Liverpool and Manchester.
Broad Oak Farm Barns are a truly exceptional opportunity for the conversion of the range of traditional, mainly brick-built agricultural buildings under natural slate roofing, into 10 residential dwellings. Although an Appeal Decision was unsuccessful for two additional residential dwellings within Building E (as shown on the Proposed Site Plan Drawing No L04 Rev P6), the council does not dispute that Building E is structurally sound, and with a little effort and imagination, Building E could successfully be adapted for residential use.
Eight of the dwellings are positioned around an attractive courtyard setting, with Units 9 and 10 being semi-detached dwellings situated to the north west of the courtyard.
The development will be accessed directly off Llyndir Lane through a central two-way access, shown on the site layout plan.
All properties will benefit from single carports with secure stores, at least two private parking spaces, with all properties having private gardens.
Planning approval was granted by Wrexham County Borough Council under Planning Reference: ROS P/2018/0888 on 18 July 2019. The approval is for the change of use and conversion of barns into 10 residential units, including demolition, new-build barns, access and parking arrangements. The planning approval is for a five-year term, expiring on 18 July 2024. Full planning drawings are available on the Wrexham County Borough Council Planning Portal, which include the proposed site layout plan, elevations, floor plans, typical parking barn detail, landscaping framework and proposed bat mitigation plan. A Section 106 of The Town and Country Planning Act 1990 was signed on 11 July 2019. The purchaser will be responsible for the “education contribution of £28,627 to be paid to the council in accordance with the provisions of the Schedule to the Section 106 Agreement”.
A condition of the sale is the purchaser will be obliged to undertake some building work to the adjoining Broad Oak Farm, as a condition of the Transfer Deed. The works are detailed within the planning approval ROS P/2019/0763 dated 15 November 2019. The works briefly comprise the construction of a two-storey extension to the farmhouse, in addition to a three-bay carport/garage, detailed under Drawings L01 Rev B, L06 Rev A, L07 Rev B and L05 Rev B.
An additional obligation is to provide the occupier of Broad Oak Farm with accommodation during the period of the extension works.
