The Welsh Office awaits further information from Flint Borough Council before determining a preliminary yardstick application for 46 houses in the first phase of the Bagillt redevelopment. I understand that the council is reapplying for planning permission. The council has been given approval in principle for environmental improvements on an area in West Bagillt comprising 225 houses.
I thank the Minister for that reply. Would he not agree, however, that Bagillt has "Bum denied decent amenities for far too long? Would he please ensure that every possible assistance and encouragement is given to the Flint Borough Council to improve the existing situation? Has not Bagillt suffered a massive rates and rental increase? Would he not agree that consequently Bagillt deserves only the best?
