Residents in Glan Conwy fear plans to demolish a home and build nine new homes will be overbearing and cause drainage and traffic problems.
Applicant Mr W Williams has applied to Conwy County Council’s planning department, seeking permission to demolish Glynton on Top Llan Road.
The planning application is set to go before Conwy’s planning committee at a meeting at Bodlondeb next week.
The developer wants to build on the land as well as two strips between 1 Tyn Celyn and Top Llan Road as well as land between Glynton and Glydar.
Although the site is relatively flat, it is elevated above the surrounding housing development.
As well as the nine new homes, the plans include new access and a pedestrian footway.
The new homes will be two storeys and varying between two, three, and four bedrooms.
But some neighbours object to the plans and have written to Conwy to raise their concerns.
Pat and Clive Chaddock said in a letter that sewage drains were ‘inadequate’.
Ms Liz Francis said the proposed development was high-density compared to neighbouring properties, describing them as ‘overbearing’. She also had concerns about daylight and drainage.
“This will have a real long-term negative impact on Glydar residents,” she wrote.
Trevor Sharpe also claimed the existing drains would be unable to cope.
R and J Davies also claimed the development would cause a shadow over their property.
In a letter to Conwy, they said, “This is an unacceptable loss of natural light which is due to the close proximity and height difference between our properties and the proposed development.”
They also had concerns about drainage and loss of privacy, arguing the new homes would overlook their properties.
Mr Paul and Christine Cumberbatch wrote that the plans would ‘add greatly’ to an existing problem.
“The village end of Top Llan Road is a full-time car park on one side of the street, due to the lack of garages/off-road parking for the houses,” they wrote.
“Vehicles at either end of the parked cars have to wait for each other over a four-hundred yard stretch, causing problems throughout the day. This is heightened during drop-off and pick-up times from the adjacent school.”
Dr Donald Lamont said in his letter, “The height and proximity of the proposed development to our boundary and hence to our property would allow occupants of plots eight and nine to look directly into our property.”
The plans will be discussed at Wednesday’s planning committee meeting at Bodlondeb.
