14 home development to get permission
Plans for a 14-home development in Penmaenmawr are set to get the green light from planning officers in Conwy.
The county’s planning committee, meeting next week in Bodlondeb, will consider the application for permission for the development from Commercial Development Projects Ltd.
The homes would be built on a 0.36 hectare plot of agricultural land on the northern side of Conway Road in Penmaenmawr.
14 homes would be built as part of the development, three of which would be affordable, with the remainder being sold at market prices.
Made up of a mix of two and three bedrooms ,the houses would be split level in design with a two storey appearance on the Conway Road frontage and three to 3.5 storey appearance when viewed from the railway/A55 carriageway.
Consultations have been carried out locally, with the Penmaenmawr town council telling officers it had no objection, although it did raise some concerns.
It wrote to the committee to recommend that: “The materials used for the window sills to the seaward side of the development be reviewed. The current plans seem to suggest that they will be wood, which is likely to eventually rot given the geographical location.”
Planning officers have recommended that permission be granted for the proposals.
A report to the committee concluded: “The development contributes to housing land supply and complies with local plan policies in terms of drainage, design, nature conservation, affordable housing contribution and other planning obligations. The development will cause some loss of agricultural land.
“However, officers consider that the allocated housing contingency site status of the land, the housing land supply shortfall and the need to increase housing land supply, serve the important strategic objectives in the local plan and outweigh the loss of natural resources. Officers therefore recommend conditional planning permission.”
