Dozens of new homes could be built on the site of a former bakery if new proposals come to fruition.
Edwards Homes wants to build 74 detached properties on the Allied Bakeries factory site on Chester Road, Saltney, which closed last November with the loss of 53 jobs .
A notice on the gates of the site lodged at the beginning of March says plans can be viewed in the town’s Saltney Tavern between 10am and 6pm until March 28.
The company says it then intends to lodge a formal planning application with Flintshire County Council.
Saltney Stonebridge ward county councillor Veronica Gay says residents have accepted the plans.
She said: “The general feeling is people are happy for the housing development.
“Residents have voiced concerns about the extra traffic being put onto the highways and others want to open up both accesses to the bakery instead of one straight road in and out.
“There is also some concern about the footpath by the proposed entrance.
“I also think people want more affordable housing and whether detached housing is the right housing I don’t know.
“Other concerns were targeted towards support services such as GP but I think people are happy with new housing.”
The centre, owned by Associated British Foods, distributed well-known brands including Kingsmill, Burgen, Allinson and Sunblest.
The company created around 20 new jobs at a new distribution centre in Caernarfon , which opened as Saltney closed.
