A55 truck stop at Caerwys, Flintshire, rejected

Plans for a truck stop near the A55 in Flintshire, which were deferred last year, have been refused by planners.

Flintshire councillors followed a recommendation to refuse the development at Caerwys.

A report said the proposed site was on undeveloped agricultural land and "would be visually detrimental to the area and result in an unacceptable form of development into open countryside".

Two applications for truck stops were also refused in 2009.
