A typical Ashberry Homes street scene

Housebuilder Ashberry Homes has purchased 13.9 hectares of land in Deeside for a new residential development.

The site, which was formerly owned by Corus Steelworks and more recently used for agricultural purposes, is located off Welsh Road in Deeside.

The new development, known as Jubilee Place, is part of the Northern Gateway; a long standing aspiration of Flintshire County Council and the Welsh Government to bring forward a comprehensive mixed-use redevelopment project in the area.

Planning consent has been granted for 400 new build homes, incorporating a collection of two, three, four and five bedroom properties, with work scheduled to start on site early 2024.


Jenny Bell, sales director at Ashberry Homes, comments: “We are delighted to be part of the Northern Gateway, bringing 400 high quality new build homes to Deeside.  We wanted to retain some local heritage and chose to call the new development Jubilee Place, after the nearby Jubilee Bridge.

“With it being Ashberry Homes’ first development in Deeside, we are very much looking forward to getting started next year, introducing our beautifully designed homes to local buyers and welcoming our first residents.”

Ashberry Homes worked with Manchester’s Lichfields Planning Consultancy on the planning and Chester’s APD (Astle Planning & Design Ltd) on the design of the development.

In addition to the new development, Ashberry Homes has made a significant Section 106 contribution towards education in the locality, providing £970,600 for improvements and/or the extension of Hawarden High School and Sealand Primary School.

The showhome at Jubilee Place is scheduled to open in Summer 2024, along with first occupancy.
