“The scheme provides a superb range of homes, each thoughtfully designed and featuring a superior specification. There are also vast areas of open green space, which will help the development quickly integrate into its mature landscape setting.”

Dôl Gele is expected to take two years to build.

The first properties will be released for sale in Spring, with a show home expected to open in the Summer.

Mr Dolan added: “It is great to be back building in Abergele. Our last development at Parc Hendre completed in 2019 and proved to be one of our most popular for new home purchasers to date.

"It’s also fantastic to help support and sustain local and skilled trades people, continuing to deliver our award-winning product in the region.”

Resolution to grant planning was secured in April 2019. The decision notice was issued in June.

The development, labelled as controversial, was given planning permission after it was discussed by councillors for the fourth time [since January 2019].

Councillors voted by seven votes to six in favour of granting permission for the development.
