Denbighshire County Council has welcomed the news 60 affordable homes will be built in the county.
The Council’s Planning Committee approved applications for developments in Ruthin, Denbigh and Dyserth, which will include 60 affordable homes.
Cllr Tony Thomas, lead member for Housing, Regulation and the Environment, said:
