About 160 new homes could be built on fields at the rear of Mold's Alun School in Flintshire.

Developer Wates Residential wants to build two, three and four-bed homes on the Flintshire council-owned land off Gwern Road.

A council report advises councillors to give the plans the go-ahead at a committee meeting on Wednesday.

It said 36 objection letters had been received with some concerns about "overdevelopment".
